ploop-flexvol

A FlexVolume driver for kubernetes which allows you to mount Ploop volumes to your kubernetes pods.

Status

Kubernetes FlexVolumes are currently in Alpha state, so this plugin is as well. Use it at your own risk.

Using

Build

This project uses glide so the easiest way to install your dependencies is using that.

Run glide up to install your dependencies.

$ glide up

Then build the binary:

go build -o ploop main.go

Installing

In order to use the flexvolume driver, you'll need to install it on every node you want to use ploop on in the kubelet volume-plugin-dir. By default this is /usr/libexec/kubernetes/kubelet-plugins/volume/exec/

You need a directory for the volume driver vendor, so create it:

mkdir -p /usr/libexec/kubernetes/kubelet-plugins/volume/exec/jaxxstorm~ploop

Then drop the binary in there:

mv ploop /usr/libexec/kubernetes/kubelet-plugins/volume/exec/jaxxstorm~ploop/ploop

You can now use ploops as usual!

Pod Config

An example pod config would look like this:

apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
metadata:
  name: nginx-ploop
spec:
  containers:
  - name: nginx
    image: nginx
    volumeMounts:
    - name: test
      mountPath: /data
    ports:
    - containerPort: 80
  nodeSelector:
    os: parallels # make sure you label your nodes to be ploop compatible 
  volumes:
  - name: test
    flexVolume:
      driver: "jaxxstorm/ploop" # this must match your vendor dir
      options:
        volumeId: "golang-ploop-test"
        size: "10G"
        volumePath: "/vstorage/storage_pool/kubernetes"

This will create a ploop volume /vstorage/storage_pool/kubernetes/golang-ploop-test. The block device which will be mounted will be at /vstorage/storage_pool/kubernetes/golang-ploop-test/golang-ploop-test and the DiskDescriptor.xml will be located at /vstorage/storage_pool/kubernetes/golang-ploop-test/DiskDescriptior.xml`

You can verify the ploop volume was created by finding the node where your pod was scheduled by running ploop list:

# ploop list
ploop18115  /vstorage/storage_pool/kubernetes/golang-ploop-test/golang-ploop-test
