This demo is to showcase DSE's ability to be continuously available under any circumstance and it has two parts: The Demo application and khaosKatz. The Demo is a simple application that writes data into DSE, but if it misses a single write the application will crash. KhaosKatz will continously load random scenarios taking down different nodes and/or entire datacenters. The goal is to run the Demo application successfully even while khaosKatz starts taking things down ungracefully.

Setup the cluster

  • 2+ DCs, 3+ nodes each
  • Opscenter

Setup the Demo app

(Note: If you installed the AssetHub Multi-Cloud Cluster everything is already setup in /tmp/dse-uptime-demo on the opscenter node. If you don't know what AssetHub is you can safely ignore this note :) )

  demo.ini: Configuration file Script to create demo.ini based on Opscenter Demo application to write data into the cluster Read application to read back data written into the cluster from the writeDemo app Automated Chaos! Simulates different cluster failure scenarios
  • create demo.ini

    • ./ demo.ini opscenter.hostname
  • optional: edit demo.ini

    • Setup SSL/Auth if required
    • Update SSH private keys
    • Change the consistency levels for the applications
    • Change local DCs for the read/write applications

Running the Demo

  • open new terminal and run ./
  • open new terminal and run ./
  • Open new terminal and run ./
    • Select failure scenarios and see how the applications respond!
You can’t perform that action at this time.
