The simplest and quickest way to try M3 is to use Docker, read the M3 quickstart section for other options.

This example uses jq to format the output of API calls. It is not essential for using M3DB.


The below is a simplified version of the M3 quickstart guide, and we suggest you read that for more details.

  1. Start a Container
docker run -p 7201:7201 -p 7203:7203 --name m3db -v $(pwd)/m3db_data:/var/lib/m3db quay.io/m3db/m3dbnode:v1.0.0
  1. Create a Placement and Namespace
curl -X POST http://localhost:7201/api/v1/database/create -d '{
  "type": "local",
  "namespaceName": "default",
  "retentionTime": "12h"
}' | jq .
  1. Ready a Namespace
curl -X POST http://localhost:7201/api/v1/services/m3db/namespace/ready -d '{
  "name": "default"
}' | jq .
  1. Write Metrics
curl -X POST http://localhost:7201/api/v1/json/write -d '{
      "__name__": "third_avenue",
      "city": "new_york",
      "checkout": "1"
    "timestamp": '\"$(date "+%s")\"',
    "value": 3347.26
  1. Query Results


curl -X "POST" -G "http://localhost:7201/api/v1/query_range" \
  -d "query=third_avenue" \
  -d "start=$(date "+%s" -d "45 seconds ago")" \
  -d "end=$( date +%s )" \
  -d "step=5s" | jq .  


curl -X "POST" -G "http://localhost:7201/api/v1/query_range" \
  -d "query=third_avenue > 6000" \
  -d "start=$(date -v -45S "+%s")" \
  -d "end=$( date +%s )" \
  -d "step=5s" | jq .
