Bosh Release for app-autoscaler service

(This release is under active development)

Purpose

The purpose of this bosh release is to deploy and setup the app-autoscaler service.

Usage

Bosh Lite Deployment

  • Install Bosh-cli-v2

  • Install and start BOSH-Deployment, following its README.

  • Install CF-deployment

  • Create a new autoscaler client

    UAA CLI is required to here to create a new UAA client id.

    • Install the UAA CLI, uaac.
    gem install cf-uaac
    • Obtain uaa_admin_client_secret
    bosh interpolate --path /uaa_admin_client_secret /path/to/cf-deployment/deployment-vars.yml
    • Use the uaac target uaa.YOUR-DOMAIN command to target your UAA server and obtain an access token for the admin client.
    uaac target uaa.bosh-lite.com --skip-ssl-validation
    uaac token client get admin -s <uaa_admin_client_secret>
    • Create a new autoscaler client
    uaac client add "autoscaler_client_id" \
        --authorized_grant_types "client_credentials" \
        --authorities "cloud_controller.read,cloud_controller.admin,uaa.resource" \
        --secret <AUTOSCALE_CLIENT_SECRET>
  • Create and upload App-Autoscaler release

git clone https://github.com/cloudfoundry/app-autoscaler-release
cd app-autoscaler-release
./scripts/update
bosh create-release
bosh -e YOUR_ENV upload-release
  • Deploy app-autoscaler with the newly created autoscaler client

    In the latest App-Autoscaler v2.0 release , App-Autoscaler retrieves application's metrics with loggregator V2 API via gRPC over mutual TLS connection.

    So the valid TLS certification to access Loggregator Reverse Log Proxy is required here. When deploying in bosh-lite, the most easy way is to provide loggregator certificates generated by cf-deployments.

bosh -e YOUR_ENV -d app-autoscaler \
     deploy templates/app-autoscaler-deployment.yml \
     --vars-store=bosh-lite/deployments/vars/autoscaler-deployment-vars.yml \
     -l <PATH_TO_CF_DEPLOYMENT_VAR_FILES> \
     -v system_domain=bosh-lite.com \
     -v cf_client_id=autoscaler_client_id \
     -v cf_client_secret=<AUTOSCALE_CLIENT_SECRET> \
     -v skip_ssl_validation=true
  • Deploy autoscaler with cf deployment mysql database

    Notes: It is blocked by the pull request cf-deployment #881 temporarily. If you would like to use the cf mysql, please apply the set-autoscaler-db.yml in the pull request when deploy cf deployment.

    The lastest Autoscaler release add the support for mysql database, Autoscaler can connect the same mysql database with cf deployment. Use the operation file example/operation/cf-mysql-db.yml which including the cf database host , password and tls.ca cert.

bosh -e YOUR_ENV -d app-autoscaler \
     deploy templates/app-autoscaler-deployment.yml \
     --vars-store=bosh-lite/deployments/vars/autoscaler-deployment-vars.yml \
     -l <PATH_TO_CF_DEPLOYMENT_VAR_FILES> \
     -v system_domain=bosh-lite.com \
     -v cf_client_id=autoscaler_client_id \
     -v cf_client_secret=<AUTOSCALE_CLIENT_SECRET> \
     -v skip_ssl_validation=true \
     -o example/operation/cf-mysql-db.yml
  • Deploy autoscaler with external postgres database and mysql database
bosh -e YOUR_ENV -d app-autoscaler \
     deploy templates/app-autoscaler-deployment.yml \
     --vars-store=bosh-lite/deployments/vars/autoscaler-deployment-vars.yml \
     -l <PATH_TO_CF_DEPLOYMENT_VAR_FILE> \
     -l <PATH_TO_DATABASE_VAR_FILE> \
     -v system_domain=bosh-lite.com \
     -v cf_client_id=autoscaler_client_id \
     -v cf_client_secret=<AUTOSCALE_CLIENT_SECRET> \
     -v skip_ssl_validation=true \
     -o example/operation/external-db.yml

** The DATABASE_VAR_FILE should look like as below

database:
  name: <database_name>
  host: <database_host>
  port: <database_port>
  scheme: <database_scheme>
  username: <database_username>
  password: <database_password>
  sslmode: <database_sslmode>
  tls:
    ca: |
      -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
           
      -----END CERTIFICATE-----

The table below shows the description of all the variables:

Property Description
database.name The database name.
database.host The database server ip address or hostname.
database.port The database server port.
database.scheme The database scheme. Currently Autoscaler supports "postgres" and "mysql".
database.username The username of the database specified above in "database.name".
database.password The password of the user specified above in "database.username".
database.sslmode There are 6 values allowed for "postgres": disable, allow, prefer, require, verify-ca and verify-full. Please refer to Postgres SSL definition when define database_sslmode. For "mysql", there are 7 values allowed: false, true, skip-verify, preferred, verify-ca, verify_identity.Please refer to Mysql SSL definition(Golang) and Mysql Connector SSL
database.tls.ca PEM-encoded certification authority for secure TLS communication. Only required when sslmode is verify-ca or verify-full(postgres) or verify_identity(mysql) and can be omitted for other sslmode.
  • Deprecated: App-AutoScaler v1 release and its deployment options.

    • To deploy app-autoscaler V1 release in default collocated approach, use app-autoscaler-deployment-fewer-v1.yml

      bosh -e YOUR_ENV -d app-autoscaler \
          deploy templates/app-autoscaler-deployment-fewer-v1.yml \
          --vars-store=bosh-lite/deployments/vars/autoscaler-deployment-vars.yml \

Register service

Log in to Cloud Foundry with admin user, and use the following commands to register app-autoscaler service

cf create-service-broker autoscaler <brokerUserName> <brokerPassword> <brokerURL>
  • brokerUserName: the user name to authenticate with service broker. It's default value is autoscaler_service_broker_user.
  • brokerPassword: the password to authenticate with service broker. It will be stored in the file passed to the --vars-store flag (bosh-lite/deployments/vars/autoscaler-deployment-vars.yml in the example). You can find them by searching for autoscaler_service_broker_password.
  • brokerURL: the URL of the service broker

All these parameters are configured in the bosh deployment. If you are using default values of deployment manifest, register the service with the commands below.

cf create-service-broker autoscaler autoscaler_service_broker_user `bosh int ./bosh-lite/deployments/vars/autoscaler-deployment-vars.yml --path /autoscaler_service_broker_password` https://autoscalerservicebroker.bosh-lite.com

Acceptance test

Refer to AutoScaler UAT guide to run acceptance test.

Use service

To use the service to auto-scale your applications, log in to Cloud Foundry with admin user, and use the following command to enable service access to all or specific orgs.

cf enable-service-access autoscaler [-o ORG]

The following commands don't require admin rights, but user needs to be Space Developer. Create the service instance, and then bind your application to the service instance with the policy as parameter.

cf create-service autoscaler  autoscaler-free-plan  <service_instance_name>
cf bind-service <app_name> <service_instance_name> -c <policy>

Remove the service

Log in to Cloud Foundry with admin user, and use the following commands to remove all the service instances and the service broker of app-autoscaler from Cloud Foundry.

cf purge-service-offering autoscaler
cf delete-service-broker autoscaler
