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.

Using a custom authentication plugin

In this recipe, you will learn how to create an authentication plugin that will allow you to perform fine-grained access control.

Getting ready

Before you start, ensure Marathon is up and running. Before applying any authentication, ensure you enabled SSL to protect secrets from eavesdropping.

How to do it...

Plugins need to be written, so we will use a plugin from the Mesosphere example. It's a good base to start with to write a custom plugin. In this recipe, we will work with Marathon 1.3.5.

First, we need to download the plugin code:

curl -L | tar -zx
cd marathon-example-plugins-1.3.5

The plugin is written in Scala, and to build it we need the Scala Build Tool (SBT):

curl -s > sbt && chmod 0755 sbt

Now we can build it. This might take some time because we need to download all the dependencies and then compile the code...
