An Ambari Service for Solr

Ambari service for easily installing and managing Solr/HdpSearch on both existing HDP clusters or fresh installs via blueprints

Limitations:

  • This is not an officially supported service and is not meant to be deployed in production systems. It is only meant for testing demo/purposes
  • It does not support Ambari/HDP upgrade process and will cause upgrade problems if not removed prior to upgrade
  • Not tested on secured clusters

Steps:

  • Download HDP 2.4 sandbox VM image (Hortonworks_sanbox_with_hdp_2_4_vmware.ova) from Hortonworks website
  • Import Hortonworks_sanbox_with_hdp_2_4_vmware.ova into VMWare and set the VM memory size to 8GB
  • Now start the VM
  • After it boots up, find the IP address of the VM and add an entry into your machines hosts file e.g.
192.168.191.241 sandbox.hortonworks.com sandbox    
  • Connect to the VM via SSH (password hadoop) and start Ambari server
ssh root@sandbox.hortonworks.com
/root/start_ambari.sh
  • To deploy the Solr stack, run below
VERSION=`hdp-select status hadoop-client | sed 's/hadoop-client - \([0-9]\.[0-9]\).*/\1/'`
sudo git clone https://github.com/abajwa-hw/solr-stack.git /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/stacks/HDP/$VERSION/services/SOLR
  • Restart Ambari
#on sandbox
sudo service ambari restart

#on non-sandbox
sudo service ambari-server restart

  • Then you can click on 'Add Service' from the 'Actions' dropdown menu in the bottom left of the Ambari dashboard:

On bottom left -> Actions -> Add service -> check Solr service -> Next -> Next -> Next -> Deploy

  • Also ensure that the install location you are choosing (/opt/solr by default) does not exist

  • On successful deployment you will see the Solr service as part of Ambari stack and will be able to start/stop the service from here: Image

  • You can see the parameters you configured under 'Configs' tab Image

Option 2: Automated deployment of fresh cluster via blueprint

  • Bring up 4 VMs imaged with RHEL/CentOS 6.x (e.g. node1-4 in this case)

  • On non-ambari nodes, install ambari-agents and point them to ambari node (e.g. node1 in this case)

export ambari_server=node1
curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/seanorama/ambari-bootstrap/master/ambari-bootstrap.sh | sudo -E sh
  • On Ambari node, install ambari-server
export install_ambari_server=true
curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/seanorama/ambari-bootstrap/master/ambari-bootstrap.sh | sudo -E sh
yum install -y git
git clone https://github.com/abajwa-hw/solr-stack.git /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/stacks/HDP/2.3/services/SOLR
  • Ensure Solr is only started after Zookeeper
    • Edit the /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/stacks/HDP/2.3/role_command_order.json file to include below:
"SOLR_MASTER-START" : ["ZOOKEEPER_SERVER-START"],
  • Ensure that by default, Solr is started on multiple nodes (3 in this example)
    • Edit the /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/stacks/HDP/2.0.6/services/stack_advisor.py file from:
  def getMastersWithMultipleInstances(self):
    return ['ZOOKEEPER_SERVER', 'HBASE_MASTER']      
  def getCardinalitiesDict(self):
    return {
      'ZOOKEEPER_SERVER': {"min": 3},
      'HBASE_MASTER': {"min": 1},
      }

to:

  def getMastersWithMultipleInstances(self):
    return ['ZOOKEEPER_SERVER', 'HBASE_MASTER','SOLR_MASTER']
  def getCardinalitiesDict(self):
    return {
      'ZOOKEEPER_SERVER': {"min": 3},
      ’SOLR_MASTER': {"min": 3},
      'HBASE_MASTER': {"min": 1},
      }
      
  • Restart Ambari
service ambari-server restart
service ambari-agent restart    
  • Confirm 4 agents were registered and agent remained up
curl -u admin:admin -H  X-Requested-By:ambari http://localhost:8080/api/v1/hosts
service ambari-agent status
  • (Optional) - Generate Ambari Blueprint and cluster file using Ambari recommendations API using below steps.
    For more details, on the bootstrap scripts see bootstrap script git
yum install -y python-argparse
git clone https://github.com/seanorama/ambari-bootstrap.git

#optional - limit the services for faster deployment

#for minimal services
export ambari_services="HDFS MAPREDUCE2 YARN ZOOKEEPER HIVE SOLR"

#for most services
#export ambari_services="ACCUMULO FALCON FLUME HBASE HDFS HIVE KAFKA KNOX MAHOUT OOZIE PIG SLIDER SPARK SQOOP MAPREDUCE2 STORM TEZ YARN ZOOKEEPER SOLR"

export deploy=false
cd ambari-bootstrap/deploy
bash ./deploy-recommended-cluster.bash
  • Configure your Solr install by editting /root/ambari-bootstrap/deploy/tempdir*/blueprint.json. For example to include configurations for Ranger audits in Solr make below changes:
    {
      "solr-config": {
        "solr.datadir": "/opt/ranger_audit_server",
        "solr.download.location": "HDPSEARCH",
        "solr.znode":"/ranger_audits"
        }  
    },
    {
      "solr-env": {
        "solr.port": "6083"
        }
    },

  • Register Bluprint
curl -u admin:admin -H  X-Requested-By:ambari http://localhost:8080/api/v1/blueprints/recommended -d @blueprint.json
  • Deploy Blueprint
curl -u admin:admin -H  X-Requested-By:ambari http://localhost:8080/api/v1/clusters/solrCluster -d @cluster.json

Use Solr

  • Lauch the Solr webapp via navigating to http://sandbox.hortonworks.com:8983/

  • Alternatively, you can launch it from Ambari via iFrame view Image

  • Create a test collection. The below creates a collection names testCollection with 1 shard and replication factor of 1, but you can repeat as necessary

export JAVA_HOME=<JAVA_HOME>

/opt/lucidworks-hdpsearch/solr/bin/solr create -c testCollection \
   -d data_driven_schema_configs \
   -s 1 \
   -rf 1 
export SERVICE=SOLR
export PASSWORD=admin
export AMBARI_HOST=sandbox.hortonworks.com
export CLUSTER=Sandbox

#get service status
curl -u admin:$PASSWORD -i -H 'X-Requested-By: ambari' -X GET http://$AMBARI_HOST:8080/api/v1/clusters/$CLUSTER/services/$SERVICE

#start service
curl -u admin:$PASSWORD -i -H 'X-Requested-By: ambari' -X PUT -d '{"RequestInfo": {"context" :"Start $SERVICE via REST"}, "Body": {"ServiceInfo": {"state": "STARTED"}}}' http://$AMBARI_HOST:8080/api/v1/clusters/$CLUSTER/services/$SERVICE

#stop service
curl -u admin:$PASSWORD -i -H 'X-Requested-By: ambari' -X PUT -d '{"RequestInfo": {"context" :"Stop $SERVICE via REST"}, "Body": {"ServiceInfo": {"state": "INSTALLED"}}}' http://$AMBARI_HOST:8080/api/v1/clusters/$CLUSTER/services/$SERVICE

Remove Solr service

  • To remove the Solr service:
    • Stop the service via Ambari
    • Delete the service
export SERVICE=SOLR
export PASSWORD=admin
export AMBARI_HOST=sandbox.hortonworks.com
export CLUSTER=Sandbox    
curl -u admin:$PASSWORD -i -H 'X-Requested-By: ambari' -X DELETE http://$AMBARI_HOST:8080/api/v1/clusters/$CLUSTER/services/$SERVICE
  • Remove artifacts

    rm -rf /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/stacks/HDP/2.2/services/solr-stack
    rm -rf /opt/solr
    
  • Restart Ambari

    service ambari restart
    
You can’t perform that action at this time.
