Hazelcast Jet

Hazelcast Jet is a distributed computing platform built for high-performance stream processing and fast batch processing. It embeds Hazelcast In-Memory Data Grid (IMDG) to provide a lightweight, simple-to-deploy package that includes scalable in-memory storage.

Visit to learn more about the architecture and use cases.

Quick Start

$ helm install stable/hazelcast-jet


This chart bootstraps a Hazelcast Jet deployments on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.


  • Kubernetes 1.9+

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release:

$ helm install --name my-release stable/hazelcast-jet

The command deploys Hazelcast Jet on the Kubernetes cluster in the default configuration. The configuration section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

Tip: List all releases using helm list

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

$ helm delete my-release

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the Hazelcast chart and their default values.

Parameter Description Default
image.repository Hazelcast Jet Image name hazelcast/hazelcast-jet
image.tag Hazelcast Jet Image tag {VERSION}
image.pullPolicy Image pull policy IfNotPresent
image.pullSecrets Specify docker-registry secret names as an array nil
cluster.memberCount Number of Hazelcast Jet members 2 Enable REST endpoints for Hazelcast Jet member true
jet.javaOpts Additional JAVA_OPTS properties for Hazelcast Jet member nil
jet.configurationFiles Hazelcast configuration files {DEFAULT_HAZELCAST_XML}
nodeSelector Hazelcast Node labels for pod assignment nil
gracefulShutdown.enabled Turn on and off Graceful Shutdown true
gracefulShutdown.maxWaitSeconds Maximum time to wait for the Hazelcast Jet POD to shut down 600
livenessProbe.enabled Turn on and off liveness probe true
livenessProbe.initialDelaySeconds Delay before liveness probe is initiated 30
livenessProbe.periodSeconds How often to perform the probe 10
livenessProbe.timeoutSeconds When the probe times out 5
livenessProbe.successThreshold Minimum consecutive successes for the probe to be considered successful after having failed 1
livenessProbe.failureThreshold Minimum consecutive failures for the probe to be considered failed after having succeeded. 3
readinessProbe.enabled Turn on and off readiness probe true
readinessProbe.initialDelaySeconds Delay before readiness probe is initiated 30
readinessProbe.periodSeconds How often to perform the probe 10
readinessProbe.timeoutSeconds When the probe times out 1
readinessProbe.successThreshold Minimum consecutive successes for the probe to be considered successful after having failed 1
readinessProbe.failureThreshold Minimum consecutive failures for the probe to be considered failed after having succeeded. 3
resources CPU/Memory resource requests/limits nil
service.type Kubernetes service type ('ClusterIP', 'LoadBalancer', or 'NodePort') ClusterIP
service.port Kubernetes service port 5701
rbac.create Enable installing RBAC Role authorization true
serviceAccount.create Enable installing Service Account true Name of Service Account, if not set, the name is generated using the fullname template nil

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

$ helm install --name my-release \
  --set cluster.memberCount=3,serviceAccount.create=false \

The above command sets number of Hazelcast Jet members to 3 and disables REST endpoints.

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

$ helm install --name my-release -f values.yaml stable/hazelcast-jet

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml

Custom Hazelcast IMDG and Jet configuration

Custom Hazelcast IMDG and Hazelcast Jet configuration can be specified inside values.yaml, as the jet.configurationFiles.hazelcast.xml and jet.configurationFiles.hazelcast-jet.xml properties.

          <metrics enabled="true">

              <!-- the metrics collection interval in seconds -->
              <!-- whether metrics should be collected for data structures. Metrics
                  collection can have some overhead if there is a large number of data
                  structures -->
You can’t perform that action at this time.
