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.

Storm Cluster


Apache Storm is a free and open source distributed realtime computation system. Storm makes it easy to reliably process unbounded streams of data, doing for realtime processing what Hadoop did for batch processing. Storm is simple, can be used with any programming language, and is a lot of fun to use!


Easy Setup

This cookbook creates the number of nodes specified by attribute node['storm-platform']['size'] (3 by default). The first node to be created will be setup with a Nimbus, a LogViewer and a UI. All other nodes will host a Supervisor and a LogViewer. To get this cookbook to setup the nth node to hold the Nimbus, Supervisor and LogViewer instead of the first one, change attribute node['storm-platform']['nimbus_id'].

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

See [roles](test/integration/roles) for some examples and Cluster Search documentation for more information.


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 4 suites:

  • dnsdock-centos-7
  • zookeeper-centos-7
  • storm-nimbus-centos-7
  • storm-supervisor-centos-7

Each corresponds to a different node in the cluster.

For more information, see [.kitchen.yml](.kitchen.yml) and [test](test) directory.

Local cluster

The cluster installed with kitchen converge is fully working and can thus be used as a local cluster for developments tests.

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



  • Strengthen tests reliability by sleeping after a Storm service is launch
  • Dependencies use supermarket, switch to zookeeper-platform


  • Cleaning, use java-1.8.0-openjdk-headless as default java package


  • Initial version with Centos 7 support



Declared in [metadata.rb](metadata.rb).


Declared in [Gemfile](Gemfile).


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.


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



Installs a three node cluster as follow :

  • Nimbus + LogViewer + UI
  • Supervisor + LogViewer
  • Supervisor + LogViewer


Extract a Storm tarball as per attributes.


Create system user for Storm binaries to run with.


Apply settings from attribute configuration to Storm configuration.


Create Systemd service files and set them up.




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.


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

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.


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