RapidMiner Command line


How to launch/execute RapidMiner in a command line mode (to execute some process of yours). [Linux & OSX]


Short Version

From the RapidMiner directory execute:

./scripts/rapidminer  PROCESS //REPOSITORY_NAME/path/to/process

Long Version

First of all, the right place to launch RM is from RM/scripts  (which somehow was not mentioned in the README file).  Launching RM by

java -jar rapidminer.jar

does not set all of the environment variable properly, so may not work quite so well.

To make sure things are working, cd into the RapidMiner directory and execute the following (you may have to do the chmod +x, and also increase the max memory):


The following message will be displayed

Usage: com.rapidminer.RapidMinerCommandLine [-f] PROCESS 
PROCESS a repository location containing a process 
-f interpret PROCESS as a file rather than a repository location (deprecated)

You can execute your process as:

./scripts/rapidminer PROCESS //REPOSITORY_NAME/path/to/process

If your repository environment was not set up properly, you may see the following error:

Nov 09, 2012 4:26:18 AM com.rapidminer.RapidMinerCommandLine run
WARNING: Cannot read process setup //REPOSITORY_NAME/path/to/process: Cannot locate entry '//REPOSITORY_NAME/path/to/process': com.rapidminer.repository.RepositoryException: Requested repository HHP does not exist.
java.io.IOException: Cannot locate entry '//REPOSITORY_NAME/path/to/process': com.rapidminer.repository.RepositoryException: Requested repository HHP does not exist.

T0 Fix it you may want to execute ./scripts/RapidMinerGUI  to make sure that your process is visible from RapidMinerGUI.

Another option is to use the:

./scripts/rapidminer -f PROCESS /FILE_PATH/to/process.rmp

You may need to set some other environment options to make sure that cross-referenced files within your process are accessible.
