The Pilosa server comes packaged with in-browser WebUI. When you run a local Pilosa server on the default host, you can access it at localhost:10101.

This can be used for constructing queries and viewing the cluster status.


The Console view allows you to enter PQL queries and run them against your locally running server. First you must select an Index with the Select index dropdown.

Each query’s result will be displayed in the Output section along with the query time.

The Console will keep a record of each query and its result with the latest query on top.

In addition to standard PQL, the console supports a few special commands, prefixed with :.

  • :create index <indexname>
  • :delete index <indexname>
  • :use <indexname>
  • :create frame <framename>
  • :delete frame <framename>

Frame creation also supports options like timeQuantum. When creating a new frame, add options by using the keys documented in API reference.

  • :create frame <framename> cacheSize=10000
