cluster gateway resolve

Lists the gateways configured on a data-fabric cluster that are up and running at the time that the command is issued.

Run this command on a source data-fabric cluster to find out how many gateways are available for table replication to a destination data-fabric cluster, or for indexing table data in an Elasticsearch cluster.

This command uses the following criteria to get the list:

  • If you specified the locations of the gateways with the cluster gateway set command, the maprcli cluster gateway resolve command returns the list of the gateways.

  • If you specified the locations of the gateways only with a DNS record, this command performs a DNS lookup for gateways on the specified data-fabric cluster and returns the list that it finds.

  • If you did not specify the locations of the gateways using the previously listed methods, this command assumes that gateways are located on the CLDB nodes configured in the mapr-clusters.conf file on the data-fabric cluster where the command is run.

Note: Unresponsive gateways are not included in the list.

For more information about gateways, see MapR Gateways.


/opt/mapr/bin/maprcli cluster gateway resolve
    [ -cluster <cluster on which the command is to be run> ]
    -dstcluster <destination cluster name> 


Parameter Description
cluster If you are not on the source data-fabric cluster, provide the name of the source cluster on which this command should run.

The name of the cluster for which you want to list the available gateways.

If you are replicating table data to another data-fabric cluster, specify the name of that destination cluster. This destination cluster can be the source cluster if you are performing intra-cluster replication.

If you are indexing table data in an Elasticsearch cluster, specify the name of the source data-fabric cluster because that is where the gateways are located.


This example shows that only one gateway is up and running on the data-fabric cluster cluster1. The IP address of this gateway was found in a DNS record, as indicated by the Source field.

/opt/mapr/bin/maprcli cluster gateway resolve -dstcluster cluster1 -json
Example Output
        "timeofday":"2015-02-18 01:33:15.862 GMT+0000",
