Short Description
Docker image for generating Citus workerlist file using Docker Cloud events
Full Description

dockercloud-workerlist-gen




NOTE: THIS SOFTWARE IS NOT PRODUCTION-READY. DOCKER CLOUD WORKERLIST GENERATION IS A PROOF-OF-CONCEPT AND REQUIRES MORE POLISH BEFORE PRODUCTION DEPLOYMENT.


dockercloud-workerlist-gen provides the functionality of workerlist-gen, but in the cloud. Based on the dockercloud-haproxy codebase, it listens to Docker Cloud events to automatically regenerate the Citus worker list file any time a Citus container is destroyed or added.

Function

dockercloud-workerlist-gen is a Python program which listens to Docker Cloud events, regenerating a Citus worker list file any time an cloud container is created or destroyed.

Unlike workerlist-gen, there is no expectation that the worker containers be colocated with other Citus containers: the only restriction is that all nodes be in the same “stack”, and that containers running dockercloud-workerlist-gen be deployed alongside any Citus master containers. This is easily accomplished with deployment tags.

Usage

Though it is unlikely to be very useful, you can put this image on a local container:

docker run citusdata/dockercloud-workerlist-gen

# Traceback (most recent call last):
#   File "/usr/local/bin/dockercloud-workerlistgen", line 9, in <module>
#     load_entry_point('dockercloud-workerlistgen==0.9.0', 'console_scripts', 'dockercloud-workerlistgen')()
#   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/workerlistgen/main.py", line 61, in main
#     autoreload = set_autoreload(WORKERLISTGEN_CONTAINER_URI, WORKERLISTGEN_SERVICE_URI, API_AUTH)
#   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/workerlistgen/main.py", line 41, in set_autoreload
#     raise RuntimeError(msg)
# RuntimeError: dockercloud/workerlistgen 0.9.0 is not running in Docker Cloud

The better place to deploy this would be in a Docker Cloud stack. This image needs links to the workers it should be monitoring, as well as the global role, to ensure it can access the Docker Cloud API. The master and worker services should be deployed to nodes with those tags (master or worker), and the config container should be deployed alongside the master service (using master tags).

As with workerlist-gen, this container needs access to the Docker socket (at /tmp/docker.sock), as well as access to the config volume exposed by a Citus master container.

Config Example

As the above rules are somewhat complex, the following config block may help by showing all of them in place at once.

config:
  image: 'citusdata/dockercloud-workerlist-gen:latest'
  volumes: ['/var/run/docker.sock:/tmp/docker.sock']
  volumes_from: ['master']
  roles: ['global']
  tags: ['master']
  links: ['worker']

Options

The default values should usually be sufficient, but just in case, some simple options are provided:

  • CITUS_CONFDIR — Output directory for worker list file (default: /etc/citus)
  • CITUS_SERVICE_NAME — Service name to restart after configuration changes (default: master)
  • DEBUG — For more verbose log output (default: false)
