Step 7: Bring up the Cluster

Before you can install metrics monitoring, log monitoring, or ecosystem components, you must enable the cluster by starting ZooKeeper and Warden and verifying the cluster installation status.

Bringing up the cluster involves starting ZooKeeper and Warden, installing a MapR license, and viewing the cluster installation status. Once these initial steps are done, the cluster is functional. You can use the MapR Control System dashboard (MCS), or the Command Line Interface (CLI), to examine nodes and activity on the cluster.
