A Linux kernel 5.5 or higher with BPF and BTF enabled is required. For more information see Supported Architectures and Kernel Requirements.

To download and install Pulsar, run the following in your terminal:

curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf | sh

Use Pre-built Binaries

Another approach to install Pulsar is by using a pre-built binary. Binaries are available for the latest release. Use pulsar-exec for x86-64 (pulsar-exec-static for a static build) or pulsar-exec-static-aarch64 for AArch64 platform. Using there approach you also need to download and setup the helper scripts to have a more convenient way to start in daemon/cli mode.

Build from source

We do not recommend build Pulsar from source. Building from source is only necessary if you wish to make modifications. If you want to play with the source code check the Developers section.
