SiriDB Server

SiriDB is a highly-scalable, robust and super fast time series database.



For Ubuntu we have a deb package available which can be downloaded here.

Note: SiriDB requires libexpat1, libuv1, libpcre2-8-0 and libcleri0 these libraries can be easily installed using apt:

apt install libexpat1 libuv1 libpcre2-8-0 libcleri0


is available from Ubuntu 18.04, for older versions a deb package can be found here:

The .deb package installs a configuration file at

. You might want to view or change this file before starting SiriDB.

Compile from source

From version 2.0.19 libcleri is not included as part of this source anymore and needs to be installed separately. libcleri can be found here: or can be installed using



Install the following requirements: (Ubuntu 18.04)

sudo apt install libcleri-dev
sudo apt install libpcre2-dev
sudo apt install libuv1-dev
sudo apt install libyajl-dev
sudo apt install uuid-dev

Compile (replace Release with Debug for a debug build):

cd ./Release
make clean
make test


sudo make install


Make sure libcleri is installed!

Install the following requirements:

brew install pcre2
brew install libuv
brew install yajl

SiriDB requires a configuration file to run. By default SiriDB will search for the configuration file in

but alternatively you can specify a custom path by using the
$ siridb-server -c /my/path/siridb.conf

An example configuration file can be found here:

Build Debian package:

Install required packages (autopkgtest is required for running the tests)

apt-get install devscripts lintian help2man autopkgtest

Create archive

git archive -o ../siridb-server_2.0.31.orig.tar.gz master

Run tests

autopkgtest -B -- null

Build package

debuild -us -uc

Run integration tests

The simplest way to run the integration tests is to use docker.

Build integration test image

docker build -t siridb/itest -f itest/Dockerfile .

Run integration tests

docker run siridb/itest:latest

Create or expand a database

SiriDB Admin can be used for creating a new database or expanding an existing database with a new server. Documentation on how to install and use the admin tool can be found at the siridb-admin github project. Binaries are available for most platforms and can be downloaded from here. As an alternative it is possible to use a simple HTTP API for creating or expanding a SiriDB database.

Using SiriDB

SiriDB has several tools available to connect to a SiriDB database.

SiriDB Connectors

The following native connectors are available: - C/C++ - Python - Go - Node.js

When not using one of the above, you can still communicate to SiriDB using SiriDB HTTP.


SiriDB HTTP provides a HTTP API for SiriDB and has support for JSON, MsgPack, Qpack, CSV and SiriDB HTTP also has an optional web interface and SSL support.

SiriDB Prompt

SiriDB Prompt can be used as a command line SiriDB client with auto-completion support and can be used to load json or csv data into a SiriDB database. Click here for more information about SiriDB Prompt.
