grip server

The server command starts up a graph server and waits for incoming requests.

Default Configuration

If invoked with no arguments or config files, GRIP will start up in embedded mode, using a Badger based graph driver.


By default the GRIP server operates on 2 ports, 8201 is the HTTP based interface. Port 8202 is a GRPC based interface. Python, R and Javascript clients are designed to connect to the HTTP interface on 8201. The grip command will often use port 8202 in order to complete operations. For example if you call grip list graphs it will contact port 8202, rather then using the HTTP port. This means that if you are working with a server that is behind a firewall, and only the HTTP port is available, then the grip command line program will not be able to issue commands, even if the server is visible to client libraries.
