      --default-install-dir DIRECTORY_PATH   Path to the default install directory
  -j, --json                                 Print output in JSON format

All nodes in the cluster will report license information; however, if you want the most up-to-date license information, query the master aggregator. A disconnected leaf node or un-configured node will not report license data.

This command is interactive unless you pass in a value for --memsql-id and enable non-interactive mode through the flag --yes.

The memsqlctl show-license command is equivalent to the memsql-admin show-license command.


The following is the standard output for the show-license command.

$ sudo memsqlctl show-license

| License_expiration | 0                         |
