Apache Mesos Cookbook

By: David Blomquist, Tomasz Janiszewski

Overview of this book

Apache Mesos is open source cluster sharing and management software. Deploying and managing scalable applications in large-scale clustered environments can be difficult, but Apache Mesos makes it easier with efficient resource isolation and sharing across application frameworks. The goal of this book is to guide you through the practical implementation of the Mesos core along with a number of Mesos supported frameworks. You will begin by installing Mesos and then learn how to configure clusters and maintain them. You will also see how to deploy a cluster in a production environment with high availability using Zookeeper. Next, you will get to grips with using Mesos, Marathon, and Docker to build and deploy a PaaS. You will see how to schedule jobs with Chronos. We’ll demonstrate how to integrate Mesos with big data frameworks such as Spark, Hadoop, and Storm. Practical solutions backed with clear examples will also show you how to deploy elastic big data jobs. You will find out how to deploy a scalable continuous integration and delivery system on Mesos with Jenkins. Finally, you will configure and deploy a highly scalable distributed search engine with ElasticSearch. Throughout the course of this book, you will get to know tips and tricks along with best practices to follow when working with Mesos.

Installing Mesos on Ubuntu 16.04 from packages

In this recipe, we will be installing Mesos .deb packages from the Mesosphere repositories using apt.

Getting ready

You must be running a 64-bit version of the Ubuntu 16.04 operating system and it should be patched to the most current patch level using apt-get prior to installing the Mesos packages.

How to do it...

  1. First, download and install the OpenPGP key for the Mesosphere packages:
$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv E56151BF
  1. Now install the Mesosphere repository:
$ DISTRO=$(lsb_release -is | tr '[:upper:]' '[:lower:]')$ CODENAME=$(lsb_release -cs)$ echo "deb${DISTRO} ${CODENAME} main"| 
sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mesosphere.list
  1. Update the apt-get package indexes:
$ sudo apt-get update
  1. Install Mesos and the included ZooKeeper binaries:
$ sudo apt-get -y install mesos
  1. At this point, you can start Mesos to do some basic testing. To start the Mesos master and agent (slave) daemons, execute the following:
$ sudo service mesos-master start$ sudo service mesos-slave start
  1. To validate the Mesos installation, open a browser and point it to http://<ipaddress>:5050. Replace <ipaddress> with the actual address of the host with the new Mesos installation.

How it works...

The Mesosphere packages provide the software required to run Mesos. Next, you will configure ZooKeeper, which is covered in Chapter 2, Implementing High Availability with Apache ZooKeeper.
