Documentation > Deployment > Command-line Terminal
H-Store includes a console interface for executing ad hoc queries and stored procedures in a running DBMS cluster. The terminal supports a local history of previously executed commands, auto-reconnect, and tab completion.
Connecting with Terminal
The example terminal below shows how to use the H-Store terminal. Invoke the hstore tool include in the source code repository to connect to an running cluster. You must pass in either the same name of the benchmark used when starting the cluster or the path to the cluster configuration.
Using the project name:
Using the path to project jar:
The client will connect to a random host in the cluster and print a confirmation message. To exit the terminal and disconnect from the cluster, use CRTL+D.
