Information needed for Kdb Insights Personal Edition License

Good evening, 

I am trying to work with Kdb insights in a Jupyter Notebook right now and I am finding some troubles to get it solved. I had a regular Q license what I used to used Q kernel and it worked perfectly fine, but when I started using the Insights License the kernel is not able to make the connection, and so I cannot work with it.
 
The weirdest part of it is that when I use q from command line it works perfectly, but it cannot make the connection with the kernel. 
I am using Windows Subsystem Linux, in case you needed this information.
 
How can I solve this?
 
Kind Regards,
Cristian Pérez

I have solved the problem so far. To use the Q kernel with the Insights license, you need to use Python 3.7. I was using Python 3.8.

Hi Cristian,

A bunch of questions that might help us guide you;

  • What version of JuypterQ do you have?
  • What format is your licence? i.e. k[x,4,c].lic?
  • What flags have you got in your Insights lic? (Can you share your banner information here?)
  • What are your QLIC and QHOME env var pointing to?

Have you installed your licence as per: Install kdb Insights Core - kdb products (kx.com) ?

Hi David,

I have jupyterq 1.1.13 version right now. 

My license is kc.lic.

The flags I have in my license are:

  • "insights.lib.embedq"
  • "insights.lib.pykx"
  • "insights.lib.sql"
  • "insights.app.rt"
  • "insights.lib.qlog"
  • "insights.lib.kurl"
  • "insights.lib.objstore"
  • "insights.lib.bigquery"
  • "insights.lib.restserver"

QLIC is actually pointing to  /home/tian/anaconda3/envs/jupyterqenv/qlic and QHOME to /home/tian/anaconda3/envs/jupyterqenv/q.

 

If you need any further information let me know.
