We have built an installer script for s9s-tools available at http://repo.severalnines.com/s9s-tools/install-s9s-tools.sh. On the ClusterControl host (or any client host):

$ wget http://repo.severalnines.com/s9s-tools/install-s9s-tools.sh
$ chmod 755 install-s9s-tools.sh
$ ./install-s9s-tools.sh

If you would like to install it manually, please refer to the next section, Package Manager (yum/apt).


If you install ClusterControl via one of the methods described under Automatic Installations (install-cc, Puppet, Ansible, Docker, etc), the s9s client will be installed automatically.
