The Ceph Toolbox is not recommended or supported for use with OpenShift Data Foundation, but sometimes you want a client to troubleshoot with anyway.
OpenShift creates a number of Certificate Authorities to sign TLS certificates which secure functions including load balancing of the API and Ingress services.
Recent versions of openshift-install will place all the CA certificates in the generated
Here is how to extract and split those certificates into individual files which eases the process of trusting them particularly on a Mac.
Kubernetes enables the automated scaling of applications to meet workload demands. Historically only memory and CPU consumption could be considered in scaling decisions, but the OpenShift Custom Metrics Autoscaler operator and KEDA remove that limitation. Read on to learn how OpenShift enables auto scaling based on the metrics that are important to your business.
Adding support for Windows nodes in your OpenShift cluster is a day 2 operation that requires preparation at install time. It is important to accommodate the hybrid networking requirements for Windows Kubernetes nodes. Azure specific tasks and gotchas are highlighted in this part 1 of 3 while laying the groundwork applicable to deploying OpenShift on any provider in preparation for managing Windows containers.
OpenShift HA Routing uses haproxy application routers to get traffic into the cluster. These application routers are made redundant by running ipfailover (keepalived) pods to maintain a set of Virtual IPs on each infrastructure node where the application routers run. These VIPs are then referenced by round robin DNS records to enable a measure of load balancing. OK, so now you are load balancing at the network layer, but what about the link layer?
This is a work in progress The OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) can run on many types of infrastructure; from a Docker contrainer, to a single VM, to a fleet of baremetal or VMs on an infrastructure provider such as RHV, VMware, Amazon EC2, Google Compute Engine, or OpenStack Platform (OSP). This post is to document my experimentation with setting up OCP on OSP. Doc Overview So where are the docs?
I needed to host a service that would be consumed by a closed client that insists on speaking HTTPS on port 50,000. To solve this, I added a 2nd router deployment and used the OpenShift router sharding feature to selectively enable routes on the 2nd router by way of selectors. To summarize: Existing HA router: HTTP 80 HTTPS 443 Haproxy Stats 1,936 Added HA router: HTTP 49,999 HTTPS 50,000 Haproxy Stats 51,936 How To Open infra node firewalls Open firewall on infra nodes where router will run to allow new http and https port iptables -A OS_FIREWALL_ALLOW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 49999 -j ACCEPT iptables -A OS_FIREWALL_ALLOW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 50000 -j ACCEPT This can also be done with Ansible and the os_firewall role in your playbook.
OpenShift gathers cluster metrics such as CPU, memory, and network bandwidth per pod which can assist in troubleshooting and capacity planning. The metrics are also used to support horizontal pod autoscaling, which makes the metrics service not just helpful, but critical to operation. Missing Liveness Probes There are 3 major components in the metrics collection process. Heapster gathers stats from Docker and feeds them to Hawkular Metrics to tuck away for safe keeping in Cassandra.
Update! I failed with CDK 2.0, but CDK 2.1 works with some fiddling. In my last post I installed Red Hat Container Developer Kit to deploy OpenShift Enterprise using Vagrant. But now I want to add Hawkular Metrics to that deployment. Deploy Metrics Refer to the docs for deploying metrics in OSE. Login to the vagrant CDK VM before continuing $ cd ~/cdk/components/rhel/rhel-ose/ $ vagrant ssh $ oc login Authentication required for https://127.
The RedHat Container Developer Kit allows you to deploy OpenShift on your laptop for easier testing and development. Here is how to deploy it. Register as a RedHat Developer Obtain a RH login Place credentials in ~/.vagrant.d/Vagrantfile to enable updates for VMs by automatically registering with RedHat Subscription Manager Vagrant.configure('2') do |config| config.registration.username = '<your Red Hat username>' config.registration.password = '<your Red Hat password>' end Mac OS X Prereqs Install pre-reqs:
