Build Status Code Climate

cloud_controller_ng

This repository contains the code for the Cloud Controller. The NG signifies that this is a "next generation" component and this is not backward-compatible with the original cloud_controller. This version adds significant new functionality including the additional mandatory "organization" and "space" hierarchy that all users, applications and services must use.

Components

Cloud Controller

The Cloud Controller itself is written in Ruby and provides REST API endpoints for clients to access the system. The Cloud Controller maintains a database with tables for orgs, spaces, apps, services, service instances, user roles, and more.

Database (CC_DB)

The Cloud Controller database has been tested with Postgres, Mysql, and Sqlite.

Blob Store

The Cloud Controller manages a blob store for:

  • resources - files that are uploaded to the Cloud Controller with a unique SHA such that they can be reused without re-uploading the file

  • app packages - unstaged files that represent an application

  • droplets - the result of taking an app package and staging it (processesing a buildpack) and getting it ready to run

The blob store uses FOG such that it can use abstractions like Amazon S3 or an NFS-mounted file system for storage.

NATS Messaging

The Cloud Controller interacts with other core components of the Cloud Foundry platform using the NATS message bus. For example, it performs the following using NATS:

  • Instructs a DEA to stage an application (processes a buildpack for the app) to prepare it to run
  • Instructs a DEA to start or stop an application
  • Receives information from the Health Manager about applications
  • Subscribes to Service Gateways that advertise available services
  • Instructs Service Gateways to handle provisioning, unprovision, bind and unbind operations for services

Testing

By default rspec will run test suite with sqlite3 in-memory database; however, you can specify connection string via DB_CONNECTION environment variable to test against postgres and mysql. Examples:

DB_CONNECTION="postgres://postgres@localhost:5432/ccng" rspec
DB_CONNECTION="mysql2://root:password@localhost:3306/ccng" rspec

Travis currently runs 3 build jobs against sqlite, postgres, and mysql.

Development

To run an interactive console with the cloud controller code loaded:

bin/console

Logs

Cloud Controller uses Steno to manage its logs. Each log entry includes a "source" field to designate which module in the code the entry originates from. Some of the possible sources are 'cc.app', 'cc.app_stager', 'cc.dea.client' and 'cc.healthmanager.client'.

Here are some use cases for the different log levels:

  • error - the CC received a malformed HTTP request, or a request for a non-existent droplet
  • warn - the CC failed to delete a droplet, CC received a request with an invalid auth token
  • info - CC received a token from UAA, CC received a NATS request
  • debug2 - CC created a service, updated a service
  • debug - CC syncs resource pool, CC uploaded a file

Database migration logs

The logs for database migrations are written to standard out.

Configuration

The Cloud Controller uses a YAML configuration file. For an example, see config/cloud_controller.yml. Some of the keys that are read from this configuration file are:

  • logging - a steno configuration hash
  • bulk_api - basic auth credentials for the application state bulk API. In Cloud Foundry, this endpoint is used by the health manager to retrieve the expected state of every user application.
  • uaa - URL and credentials for connecting to the UAA, Cloud Foundry's OAuth 2.0 server.
