Development mode is StackState's installation mode for a small installation to do experiments on. It requires only one machine, but it is limited to 1000 components per view, due to the limited setup. This is recommended for small trials. Production mode is what we recommend for bigger proof-of-concept projects or in an actual production environment.
Before starting the installation, ensure your system meets StackState's development setup installation requirements.
For a development setup of StackState, simply follow the instructions for Installing StackState, using
DEVELOPMENT as the SETUP configuration parameter.
The RPM and DEB packages install SystemD services for StackState and StackGraph. StackState can be started with
sudo systemctl start stackstate.service this will also start service StackGraph. Starting StackState can take some time.

StackState can be stopped by
sudo systemctl stop stackstate.service. StackGraph is not automatically stopped when stopping StackState, StackGraph can be stopped by
sudo systemctl stop stackgraph.service.
Checking the service status can be done with
sudo systemctl status stackstate.service and
sudo systemctl status stackgraph.service.
