Try nohup

Actually, if you want to use it continuously, it’s better to directly deploy a set with tiup cluster. It can be used on a single machine as well.

Put it in screen :slight_smile:

Yes, I used nohup.

It would be better to set all nodes to 1 and configure the simplest topology. Deploying with tiup cluster is more convenient than using the playground.

Execute command in the background

There’s absolutely no need to use tiup playground; deploying in single-machine mode is even simpler.

Use nohup

The playground is generally used for debugging. If the development resources are insufficient, it is recommended to use a single-node cluster.

  • Install screen (if not already installed).
  • Open a new screen session:
screen -S tidb_playground

Run tiup playground in the screen session:

tiup playground --version=vX.Y.Z
  • If you want to keep tiup playground running and detach from the screen session, press Ctrl + A then D (i.e., hold Ctrl and A, release them, and then press D).
  • To reconnect to the screen session, use the following command:
screen -r tidb_playground
