I was trying to bringup my application server on the same machine as that of voltdb and saw that the port 8080 is already in use.

When i invoked the 8080 on browser it showed

VoltDB Version 1.0.01
Buildstring: https://svn.voltdb.com/eng/trunk?revision=640

Running on a cluser of 1 hosts with 1 sites (1 per host).

Question is is this port 8080 configurable ?
Yes, in 1.1 it is.

In version 1.0.01, if 8080 is unavailable, VoltDB will try subsequent ports like 8081. It should list at startup which port it eventually listens on.

In 1.1.01, coming as soon as today sometime, there is a command line parameter called "httpadminport" that allows you specify the port for HTTP. I believe it is documented in the JSON section of the 1.1.01 user guide. It currently has the same behavior where it will start at the given port and try subsequent ports until it finds an open port, ultimately listing the port at startup.


I expect this functionality to continue to improve in 1.2 and have created a ticket to track improvements: https://issues.voltdb.com/browse/ENG-657.
