Ubuntu 18.04


To install JetStream, you will need to either be logged in as root or be an administrative user using sudo. The examples below use sudo.

JetStream will install systemd service units for jetstream-server and jetstream-relay services, with /etc/jetstream-server.rsp and /etc/jetstream-relay.rsp configuration files respectively. The server service is enabled by default.

New Installation

To install JetStream on Ubuntu, run the following:

# sudo dpkg -i go-jetstream_<version>.deb

Your server should now be running.

Update Existing Installation

To update JetStream on Linux, run:

# sudo dpkg -i go-jetstream_<version>.deb

If you have made modifications to system configuration files, such /etc/jetstream-server.rsp, you may be prompted to overwrite the file with a new version. Say can say “N” to keep your current configuration, and then refer to /etc/jetstream-server.rsp.dist to see which changes were made to the default configuration.


To uninstall JetStream:

# sudo dpkg -P go-jetstream

Check Service

You can check if the JetStream service is running by running the systemctl status command. Under normal circumstances, the command should report that the process is active(running) under the Active heading. For example:

# systemctl status jetstream-server
● jetstream-server.service - Go:JetStream server service
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/jetstream-server.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

 Main PID: 681 (jetstream)

   CGroup: /system.slice/jetstream-server.service
           ├─ 681 /usr/local/bin/jetstream server @/etc/jetstream-server.rsp
           └─1172 /usr/local/bin/jetstream server @/etc/jetstream-server.rsp
