Installs the Terracotta clustering software. This cookbook is intended for use with the Shibboleth IdP and has not been tested in other configurations.
Tested and developed on CentOS
Requires the stock java cookbook, and should probably only be used with our Shibboleth IdP cookbook.
node["terracotta"]["version"]- The version of the software we're installing. Should match the archive you place in files/default - see
node['terracotta']['install_dir']- Where to unpack the software. Defaults to
node['terracotta']['tims']- A dictionary of TIM names mapped to version numbers. For each one, you must place a matching jar file in files/default/. See
Usage, below, for more information. Defaults to what you need to run Shibboleth - vector, tomcat-6.0, tomcat-5.5, tomcat-common, session-common, and session-ui.
node['terracotta']['toolkits']- A dictionary of toolkit major versions mapped to minor versions. For each one, you must place a matching jar file in files/default/. See
Usage, below, for more information. Defaults to what you need to run Shibboleth - 1.6.
We support placing the tim and toolkit archives locally to faciliate deployments with default-deny outbound firewalls. We should probably make it a configuration option whether to use a local copy or fetch them with tim-get.sh.
Place the Terracotta distribution tarball in the files/default/ directory of this cookbook, along with any TIMs and/or toolkits you want to load.
Define at the
version attribute to match the tarball you used above.
If you are using this cookbook with Shibboleth and Terracotta, also be sure to set the ['tomcat']['java_options'] attribute to something like this:
-Dtc.install-root=/opt/terracotta -XX:+MustCallLoadClassInternal -Dtc.config=/opt/terracotta/tc-config.xml -Xbootclasspath/p:$TC_HOME/lib/dso-boot/dso-boot-hotspot_linux_160_29.jar -Xms1G -Xmx1G -XX:+UseParallelOldGC -XX:MaxGCPauseMillis=5000 -XX:+PrintGCDetails -XX:+PrintGCTimeStamps -XX:-TraceClassUnloading
