psm bdcsce scale-out

Scale-out the Oracle Big Data Cloud cluster by adding new nodes.


In the following syntax, line breaks have been added for clarity. Do not include them when entering the command.

psm bdcsce scale-out -s|--service-name cluster-name
	-c|--config-payload path-to-json-file
	[-of|--output-format short|json|html]
	[-wc|--wait-until-complete true|false]


Parameter Description

-s|--service-name cluster-name

Specifies the name of the Oracle Big Data Cloud cluster.

-c|--config-payload path-to-json-file

Specifies the path to a JSON file containing the information necessary to scale out a cluster. The format of this file is the same as the request body you provide when scaling out a cluster by using the REST API. For information about this format, see the “Body Parameter” section of Scale out a Cluster in REST API to Manage Oracle Big Data Cloud.

-of|--output-format short|json|html

(Optional) Specifies the output format of the command’s response:

  • short— output is formatted as a brief summary.

  • json— output is formatted as a JSON array.

  • html— output is formatted as HTML

The default output format is the one you specified when using the psm setup command to configure the psm CLI.

–wc|--wait-until-complete true|false

(Optional) If set to true, the command behaves synchronously. That is, it does not return until the submitted job is complete. The following message is displayed until the job is complete:

Waiting for the job to complete... (it cannot be cancelled)

The default value is false.


The following example scales-out the bdcsce-cluster cluster by adding 1 compute-only slave.

$ psm bdcsce scale-out -s bdcsce-cluster -c scale-out.json


Minimum 1 node for Compute Only or Compute with HDFS type should be provided for scaling out.
