After creating a Project and adding nodes to your cluster, the next step is to add SQLite databases. If you already have databases that you want to share, simply select Upload Database, and within a few minutes, your databases will be up and running on your cluster. It’s worth noting that you can also upload encrypted SQLite databases if you used the official SEE SQLite encryption extension.

A sample Chinook database is included for your convenience. For more information about the Chinook sample database, refer to its official repo.

Dashbord Upload Database

Alternatively, select Create Database, and fill in the required details. The only mandatory field is the database name; all other fields are optional. The default encoding is set to UTF-8, and the default page size is 4096KB. If no encryption key is set, your database will not be encrypted.

Dashboard Create Database

Once you’re done, your Databases panel will look like this:

Dashboard Database List

In addition to the more obvious columns, such as database Name and Size, there are other useful columns:

  • The Connections column reports how many clients are connected to the database.
  • The Encryption columns reports infomation about the encryption algorithm used in the database.
  • The Backup column shows whether a backup option is enabled for the database.
  • The Read/Write column reports the number of read/write operations performed on the database.
  • The Bytes Out/In column reports the number of input/output bytes generated by the database.
  • The Fragmentation column reports a fragmentation value for the database.

The action menu contains links to the following features:

  • Download which allows you to download the database.
  • Tables where you can see a list of all the tables contained within the database.
  • Encyption where you edit encryption options.
  • Backup where you can access the Backup section.
  • Delete Database which lets you delete the database.
