keepalived Cookbook

Installs keepalived and generates the configuration file.

Usage

Configuration settings

  • node[:keepalived][:shared_address] = true # If keepalived is using a shared address

Global settings

  • node['keepalived']['global']['notification_emails'] = 'admin@example.com' # notification emails
  • node['keepalived']['global']['notification_email_from'] = "keepalived@#{node.domain}" # from address
  • node['keepalived']['global']['smtp_server'] = '127.0.0.1' # smtp server address
  • node['keepalived']['global']['smtp_connect_timeout'] = 30 # smtp connection timeout
  • node['keepalived']['global']['router_id'] = 'DEFAULT_ROUT_ID' # router ID
  • node['keepalived']['global']['router_ids'] = {} # mapped router ID (see example below)

The router_ids allow for defining different IDs based on node name within a single role. This allows for a role structured like so:

override_attributes(
  :keepalived => {
    :global => {
      :router_ids => {
        'node1' => 'MASTER_NODE',
        'node2' => 'BACKUP_NODE'
      }
    }
  }
)

Check Scripts

  • node[:keepalived][:check_scripts] = {} # define available check scripts

Multiple check scripts can be defined. The key will provide the name of the check script within the configuration file. The value should be a hash with the keys: script, interval and weight defined. For example, a simple HAProxy check script:

node[:keepalived][:check_scripts][:chk_haproxy] = {
  :script => 'killall -0 haproxy',
  :interval => 2,
  :weight => 2
}

Instance defaults

These are fallback values instance blocks can default to if non have been explicitly defined:

  • node[:keepalived][:instance_defaults][:state] = 'MASTER' # default state
  • node[:keepalived][:instance_defaults][:priority] = 100 # default priority
  • node[:keepalived][:instance_defaults][:virtual_router_id] = 'DEFAULT_VIRT_ROUT_ID' # default virtual router ID

Instances

  • node[:keepalived][:instances] = {}

Multiple instances can be defined. The key will be used to define the instance name. The value will be a hash used to describe the instance. Attributes used within the instance hash:

  • :ip_addresses => '127.0.0.1' # IP address(es) used by this instance
  • :interface => 'eth0' # Network interface used
  • :states => {} # Node name mapped states
  • :virtual_router_ids => {} # Node name mapped virtual router IDs
  • :priorities => {} # Node name mapped priorities
  • :track_script => 'check_name' # Name of check script in use for instance
  • :nopreempt => false # Do not preempt
  • :advert_int => 1 # Set advert_int
  • :auth_type => nil # Enable authentication (:pass or :ah)
  • :auth_pass => 'secret' # Password used for authentication
  • :unicast_peer => {} # IP address(es) for unicast (only for 1.2.8 and greater)

Vrrp Sync Groups

Sync groups can be created using a hash with the group name as the key. Individual sync group hashes accept arrays of instances and options for each group as shown below:

node[:keepalived][:sync_groups] = {
  :vg_1 => {
    :instances => [
      'vi_1'
    ],
    :options => [
      'global_tracking'
    ]
  }
}

Full role based example

override_attributes(
  :keepalived => {
    :shared_address => true,
    :check_scripts => {
      :chk_haproxy => {
        :script => 'killall -0 haproxy',
        :interval => 2,
        :weight => 2
      }
    },
    :instances => {
      :vi_1 => {
        :ip_addresses => '192.168.0.2',
        :interface => 'eth0',
        :state => 'MASTER',
        :states => {
          'master.domain' => :master,
          'backup.domain' => :backup
        },
        :virtual_router_ids => {
          'master.domain' => 'SERVICE_MASTER',
          'backup.domain' => 'SERVICE_BACKUP'
        },
        :priorities => {
          'master.domain' => 101,
          'backup.domain' => 100
        },
        :track_script => 'chk_haproxy',
        :nopreempt => false,
        :advert_int => 1,
        :auth_type => :pass,
        :auth_pass => 'secret'
      }
    }
  }
)

Recipe based example:

include_recipe 'keepalived'

node[:keepalived][:check_scripts][:chk_init] = {
  :script => 'killall -0 init',
  :interval => 2,
  :weight => 2
}
node[:keepalived][:instances][:vi_1] = {
  :ip_addresses => '10.0.2.254',
  :interface => 'eth0',
  :track_script => 'chk_init',
  :nopreempt => false,
  :advert_int => 1,
  :auth_type => nil, # :pass or :ah
  :auth_pass => 'secret'
}
