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 and configuring Metronome

In this recipe, you will learn how to set up Metronome.

How to do it...

Metronome installation is a bit harder than Marathon. There are no official binary packages for it, so it must be installed from source.

  1. First, we need to download the Metronome source code:
curl -L | tar -zx
cd metronome-0.1.9
  1. Metronome is written in Scala and to build it, we need the Scala Build Tool (SBT):
cho "deb /" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sbt.list
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv 642AC823
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sbt
  1. Install the Protocol Buffer compiler:
  sudo apt-get install protobuf-compiler
  1. Finally, build and install the package:
sbt universal:packageBin
mkdir -p /opt/mesosphere
unzip target/universal/ -d /opt/mesosphere
cat <<EOF > /etc/systemd/system/metronome.service
