Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Confluent Platform

Description

Apache Kafka, an open source technology created and maintained by the founders of Confluent, acts as a real-time, fault tolerant, highly scalable messaging system. It is widely adopted for use cases ranging from collecting user activity data, logs, application metrics, stock ticker data, and device instrumentation. Its key strength is its ability to make high volume data available as a real-time stream for consumption in systems with very different requirements—from batch systems like Hadoop, to real-time systems that require low-latency access, to stream processing engines that transform the data streams as they arrive.

This infrastructure lets you build around a single central nervous system transmitting messages to all the different systems and applications within your company. Learn more on http://confluent.io.

This cookbook focuses on deploying Confluent Platform elements on your clusters via Chef on systemd managed distributions. At the moment, this includes Kafka, Schema Registry and Kafka Rest.

Usage

Easy Setup

Default recipe does nothing. Each service Kafka, Schema Registry or Kafka Rest will be installed by calling respectively recipe install-kafka, install-registry and install-rest.

By default, this cookbook installs openjdk from the official repositories (openjdk 8 on centos 7) in services recipe, just before launching the service. You can deactivate this behavior by setting node['confluent-platform']['java'] to "", or choose your package by setting the package name in node['confluent-platform']['java'][node[:platform]].

The recommended way to use this cookbook is through the creation of a different role per cluster, that is a role for Kafka, Schema Registry and Kafka Rest. This enables the search by role feature, allowing a simple service discovery.

See roles for some examples and Cluster Search documentation for more information.

Test

This cookbook is fully tested through the installation of the full platform in docker hosts. This uses kitchen, docker and some monkey-patching.

If you run kitchen list, you will see 7 suites: - dnsdock-centos-7 - zookeeper-centos-7 - kafka-01-centos-7 - kafka-02-centos-7 - kafka-03-centos-7 - registry-01-centos-7 - rest-01-centos-7

Each corresponds to a different node in the cluster.

For more information, see .kitchen.yml and test directory.

Local cluster

Of course, the cluster you install by running kitchen converge is fully working so you can use it as a local cluster to test your development (like a new Kafka client). Moreover, compared to a single node cluster usually installed on workstations, you can detected partition/timing/fault-tolerance issues you could not because of the simplicity of a single-node system.

You can access it by adding the dnsdock used in the cluster as your main DNS resolver: add docker inspect --format '{{.NetworkSettings.IPAddress}}' dnsdock-kafka in /etc/resolv.conf.

Then to produce some messages:

kafka-console-producer.sh \
  --broker-list kafka-kitchen-01.kitchen:9092 \
  --topic my_topic

And to read them:

kafka-console-consumer.sh \
  --zookeeper zookeeper-kafka.kitchen/kafka-kitchen \
  --topic my_topic \
  --from-beginning

Or you can use Rest API with http://rest-kitchen-01.kitchen:8082 and full Schema Registry support, located at http://registry-kitchen-01.kitchen:8081.

Changes

1.0.0:

  • Initial version with Centos 7 support

Requirements

Cookbooks

Declared in metadata.rb.

Gems

Declared in Gemfile.

Platforms

A systemd managed distribution: - RHEL Family 7, tested on Centos

Note: it should work fine on Debian 8 but the official docker image does not allow systemd to work easily, so it could not be tested.

Attributes

Configuration is done by overriding default attributes. All configuration keys have a default defined in attributes/default.rb. Please read it to have a comprehensive view of what and how you can configure this cookbook behavior.

Recipes

default

Does nothing.

repository

Configure confluent repository.

install-service

Install and fully configure a given service by running repository and its 4 dedicated recipes: package, user, config and service, in that order.

service-package

Install given service from confluent repository.

service-user

Create given service system user and group.

service-config

Generate service configuration. May search for dependencies (like Zookeeper or other nodes of the same cluster) with the help of cluster-search cookbook.

service-service

Install systemd unit for the given service, then enable and start it.

Note: install java package (OpenJDK 8 on centos 7) by default, can be disabled by setting node['confluent-platform']['java'] to "". A platform specific configuration for the package to install is also possible.

Resources/Providers

None.

Contributing

You are more than welcome to submit issues and merge requests to this project. Note however that this cookbook will probably not support another supervisor than systemd.

Commits

Your commits must pass git log --check and messages should be formated like this (based on this excellent post):

Summarize change in 50 characters or less

Provide more detail after the first line. Leave one blank line below the
summary and wrap all lines at 72 characters or less.

If the change fixes an issue, leave another blank line after the final
paragraph and indicate which issue is fixed in the specific format
below.

Fix #42

Also do your best to factor commits appropriately, ie not too large with unrelated things in the same commit, and not too small with the same small change applied N times in N different commits. If there was some accidental reformatting or whitespace changes during the course of your commits, please rebase them away before submitting the PR.

Files

All files must be 80 columns width formatted (actually 79), exception when it is not possible.
