Installation and Roadmap


Python 2.7

The ceph-rest-api must be run on either a member of your Ceph cluster, or on a installed client node that has admin access to the cluster.

Ubuntu Installation:

  sudo su -
  apt-get update && apt-get install -y python-pip python-dev libxml2-dev libxslt-dev
  git clone
  cp krakendash/contrib/*.sh .
  cd krakendash
  pip install -r requirements.txt

In /root you now have two scripts: starts the ceph-rest-api in a screen session called api starts krakendash in a screen session called django

To reattach to a session, use:

  screen -ls

This gives a list of your sessions. The session name will appears as $PID.{api|django}, re-attach using:

  screen -r $NAME

Now you can run Kraken!

./ (if you are running kraken on a ceph client or cluster node) ./

Systemd-based system

  sudo su -
  yum upgrade && yum install -y python-pip python-devel libxml2-devel libxslt-devel
  cd /var/www
  git clone
  cp krakendash/contrib/systemd/* /etc/systemd/system/
  systemctl daemon-reload
  cd krakendash
  pip install -r requirements.txt
  systemctl start ceph-rest-api krakendash

If you are not running Kraken on a Ceph node, edit krakendash/kraken/ Here you can change CEPH_BASE_URL to point at your host running ceph-rest-api. Copy the script to that host and run it as root. Kraken will then talk to that API endpoint for cluster data.
