Exhibitor

Build Status Chef cookbook

Chef cookbook for installing and managing Netflix's Exhibitor, a co-process for Apache Zookeeper.

Caveats

Attempting to install Exhibitor, using Maven, on Ubuntu 14.04, will result in an error:

[ERROR] Plugin org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-clean-plugin:2.5 or one of its dependencies could not be resolved: Failed to read artifact descriptor for org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-clean-plugin:jar:2.5: Could not transfer artifact org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-clean-plugin:pom:2.5 from/to central (https://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2): java.lang.RuntimeException: Unexpected error: java.security.InvalidAlgorithmParameterException: the trustAnchors parameter must be non-empty -> [Help 1]

As a result, we do not support this.

Usage

In particular, two key attribute hashes drive this cookbook.

The first is node['exhibitor']['cli'], which specifies command-line options that will be used when Exhibitor is run. Some are necessary, and in particular the defaults provided will ensure Exhibitor is able to run.

The second is node['exhibitor']['config'], which manages the configuration parameters that get rendered to the exhibitor.properties file. The defaults are sensible starting values.

We recommend running exhibitor::default to get a basic, default setup of Exhibitor going, as well as calling exhibitor::service if you want the service to boot up in the same run. These recipes are split for workflows within, for example, AMI pipelines.

More documentation to come. Please see the Exhibitor docs for more information on the specifics of running Exhibitor.
