Connect to Cassandra
You can connect to Cassandra from the same server. Obtain the password from the dashboard for your server.
$ cqlsh -u cassandra
This will connect you to the Cassandra console and display a prompt. Once connected, you can run cqlsh commands to create and populate data. For example, the command below lists available keyspaces:
cassandra@cqlsh> describe keyspaces system_traces system_schema system_auth system system_distributed
You can learn more about Cassandra in the Cassandra Getting Started guide.
