Tyrant Manager

INSTALLATION

sudo gem install tyrantmanager

SYNOPSIS

tyrantmanager (setup|create-instance|start|stop|status|stats|list) [options]+

DESCRIPTION

A command line tool for managing Tokyo Tyrant instances. It allows for the creation, starting, stopping, listing, stating of many tokyo tyrant instances all on the same machine. The commands can be applied to a single or multiple instances.

Setup a manager home

After installing the gem, you need to setup a tyrant manager home, all the tyrant instances are initially relative to this location.

jeremy@playground:~ % tyrantmanager setup /tmp/tyrant
00:09:06  INFO : Creating directory /tmp/tyrant
00:09:06  INFO : Creating default config file /tmp/tyrant/config.rb
00:09:06  INFO : Creating directory /tmp/tyrant/instances
00:09:06  INFO : Creating directory /tmp/tyrant/log
00:09:06  INFO : Creating directory /tmp/tyrant/tmp

Once the manager home is setup, all other commands need to know about it. This can be achieved in 3 ways.

  • use the –home option on all commands

  • set the TYRANT_MANAGER_HOME environment variable

  • execute the commands when the current working directory is the tyrant home.

Creating a new tyrant instance

Each instances is separate, yet initially relative to to the tyrant manager's home.

jeremy@playground:/tmp/tyrant % tyrantmanager create-instance foo
00:17:55  INFO : Creating instance directory /tmp/tyrant/instances/foo
00:17:55  INFO : Creating directory /tmp/tyrant/instances/foo
00:17:55  INFO : Creating default config file /tmp/tyrant/instances/foo/config.rb
00:17:55  INFO : Creating directory /tmp/tyrant/instances/foo/ulog
00:17:55  INFO : Creating directory /tmp/tyrant/instances/foo/data
00:17:55  INFO : Creating directory /tmp/tyrant/instances/foo/lua
00:17:55  INFO : Creating directory /tmp/tyrant/instances/foo/log

This creates a new tyrant instance in the instances directory. There are several subdirectories created for you automatically.

  • data - the actual data file location

  • ulog - where the update logs are kept

  • log - the server logs

  • lua - default location for lua code

Configuring an instance

Configuration of a Tyrant instances is in the 'config.rb' file in the instances home directory. This all the configuration items that are specific to that instance. Take a look through the file, or just execute it to see a nicely formatted output of all the current configuration parameters, descriptions, and current values. This example just highlights a few of the options.

jeremy@playground:/tmp/tyrant/instances/foo % ruby config.rb 
The directory holding the database file.  By default this is relative
to the instance directory.  If you want to put it somewhere else, then
put the full path here.
  - data_dir                   => "data"

The hostname this instance will listen on. The default is all
  - host                       => "0.0.0.0"

[...]

Mode of the server in relation to the database.  It can be a combination of 
the following:
     w - it is a database writer
     r - it is a database reader
     c - it creates the database if it does not exist
     t - it truncates the database if it does exist
     e - do not lock the database when doing operations
     f - use a non-blocking lock when doing operations
  - mode                       => "wc"

The options for data stored in the database.  They include one of the 
compression options:
     d - Deflate
     b - BZIP2
     t - TCBS 
 and 
     l - allow the database to be larger than 2GB
  - opts                       => "ld"

[...]

The type of database this instance will be.  Options are:
     memory-hash - an in memory hash database
     memory-tree - an in memory B+ tree database
     hash        - an on disk hash database
     tree        - an on disk B+ tree database
     fixed       - an on disk fixed length database
     table       - an on disk table database
  - type                       => "hash"

There are also configuration items in the 'config.rb' in the Manager's home directory. These are global defaults for all instances the manager knows about, and may be overridden in the instance's 'config.rb' file. Again, just execute the configuration file to see all the options, their current set values and the documentation.

jeremy@playground:/tmp/tyrant % ruby config.rb 
The top directory of the manager directory.  This is set with the 
--directory option or it can be set here"
  - home                               => nil

Default settings for tyrant instances.  If a tyrant does not explicitly set one of 
these configurations then the default listed here is used.  This does not list all
of the configuration variables, only those that make sense to have defaults for.
  - instance_defaults

[...]

 Run daemonized
  - instance_defaults.daemonize        => true

[...]

The list of locations that contain Tyrant instances.  Each element in this array
either a directory containing instance directories, or an instance directory itself.
Tyrant Manager will figure out what the case is.  If this is unset, then the default
'instances' directory below the manager's home directory is used.
  - instances                          => nil

The 'ttserver' command.  This will use the first one found in path by default
or you may explicitly set it here.
  - ttserver                           => "ttserver"

There are a considerable number of configuration options for Tokyo Tyrant and I've done my best to document all of them.

If you do have more than one instance on a single machine, you'll need to make sure to change the port option, otherwise only one instance will run.

desc "The port this tyrant will listen on.  The default is 1978"
port 1978

Listing, Controlling instances and Seeing their status

Instances may be started and stopped all at once, or individually. On startup, the ttserver command line that was used is output.

List known instances

jeremy@playground:/tmp/tyrant % tyrantmanager list
             bar : port 1979 : /tmp/tyrant/instances/bar
             baz : port 1980 : /tmp/tyrant/instances/baz
             foo : port 1978 : /tmp/tyrant/instances/foo

Start all

As you can see the commandline used to start the tyrant server is output.

00:52:17  INFO : baz is running as pid 28670
00:52:17  INFO : foo is running as pid 28682

Stop all

jeremy@playground:/tmp/tyrant % tyrantmanager stop all
00:52:40  INFO : Stopping bar : pid 28658
00:52:40  INFO : Sent signal TERM to 28658
