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.

Building the Jenkins Mesos plugin

By default, Jenkins uses statically created agents and runs jobs on them. We can extend this behavior with a plugin that will make Jenkins use Mesos as a resource manager. Jenkins will register as a Mesos framework and accept offers when it needs to run a job.

Getting ready

You need to have Mesos up and running. See Chapter 1, Getting Started with Apache Mesos for more information.

How to do it...

The Jenkins Mesos plugin installation is a bit harder than Marathon. There are no official binary packages for it so it must be installed from sources:

  1. First, we need to download the source code:
curl -L | tar -zx
cd jenkinsci-mesos-plugin-*
  1. The plugin is written in Java and to build it we need Maven (mvn):
sudo apt install maven
  1. Finally, build the package:
mvn package

If everything goes smoothly, you should see information, that all tests passed and the plugin package will be placed in target/mesos.hpi...
