QuerySurge Installation Architecture
QuerySurge Component Details
QuerySurge consists of three main components:
- QuerySurge App Server – Hosts the Web 2.0 User Interface and manages QuerySurge execution
- QuerySurge Database – QuerySurge’s MySQL embedded database
- QuerySurge Agent(s) – Sends queries to Source and Target Connections and retrieves result sets
- Tutorial + Sample Data – provides Sample Data for the QuerySurge tutorial
Installation Best Practices
For trial installations, it is common to install all of the QuerySurge components on a single machine. In order to improve performance, most production installations will either:
- Deploy each component on a separate machine
- Deploy all components on a single machine with substantial resources

Important Note on Upgrading to QuerySurge 5.0+
The QuerySurge 5.0 release contains the QuerySurge Data Staging feature. This feature is licensed separately, so you will need to request for the feature to be enabled (via a new license). Contact your representative for information.
- Use the default QuerySurge Database Port value of "3306", unless it is already in use, and click the Next button to continue.
- Use the default QuerySurge Application Server Ports, unless either is already in use, and click the Next button to continue
- Select which data sources you’d like to connect to from QuerySurge. Selecting a data source will install the driver listed as part of the Agent installation process. After selecting your driver(s), click the Next button.
Note: If you do not see your specific data source technology listed, you will be able to add additional vendor drivers to QuerySurge post-installation. For a list of vendor websites and their corresponding driver download pages, please see the full installation guide.
- After the installation is complete, click the Finish button to close the Installer and launch QuerySurge in your default browser.
Note: If you have finished this section, your installation is complete.
Log into QuerySurge
- Open a browser, and navigate to the URL: http://<server_name>/QuerySurge. (Note: if you specified a different port other than "80" when installing the QuerySurge Application Server, then the URL is: http://<server_name>:<port>/QuerySurge).
- Log in with default administrative credentials:
- Go to the QuerySurge Administration area and set the administrative password to a value of your choosing.
If you have downloaded a trial version of QuerySurge, a 15-day trial license has been included as part of the installation process. You may log into QuerySurge.

To help you get going, QuerySurge™ comes with a Getting Started assistant in the application that will walk you through completing some of the initial tasks as a new user.
To see this at any time, click on the button in the top menu of QuerySurge™.
