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 CentOS 7 and RHEL 7 from packages

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

Getting ready

Your CentOS 7 or RHEL 7 operating system should be patched to the most current patch level using yum prior to installing the Mesosphere packages.

How to do it...

  1. First, add the Mesosphere repository:
$ sudo rpm -Uvh  
  1. And now, install Mesos and ZooKeeper:
$ sudo yum -y install mesos mesosphere-zookeeper
  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.

See also

If you prefer to build and install Mesos from source code on RHEL 7 or CentOS 7, you can find installation instructions for CentOS 7 on the website. We do not cover installing Mesos source code on RHEL7 or CentOS 7 in this book due to dependencies that require packages from multiple third-party repositories.
