Ok, after looking at the /etc/default/octohost file, I'm looking at this block:

# Where you are telling tentacles to direct HTTP traffic.
# Most of the time, this should be 127.0.0.1. When you have multiple
# octohost servers that work as a cluster, then this should be a
# different value.
ENDPONT_ADDR="127.0.0.1"

Can anyone elaborate on their clustering setup?

I'm still toying around with things like deis and flynn, and it would be really cool to have abilities for certain images to be HA clustered to kingdom come. However, the main reason I'm still using octo is a lot of services don't cluster so easily. So I've been thinking of how to handle fig and now docker-compose inside of octo. I think the answer to all questions might be some sort of octo-config file that could be included in a repo. This could provide a very robust alternative to the 'magic comments' hack. And provide us a way of specifying multiple docker files in a single git push, or a fig.yml docker-compose and even let us say have certain images be pushed elsewhere to other octohosts in parallel, or even other providers (e.g. deis, flynn, etc). And if the file is not present operate as normal, keeping backward compatibility.

That particular configvalue was for when we were using octohost/tentacles - but that's been abandoned. It's not used anymore.

I've been toying with some clustering as well and although I've gotten it to work a few times, it's very fragile.

I want to take a look at using docker swarm and docker compose to help with some of what you're describing - making multiple machines work together better - but just haven't had time.

I'd really like it if used some of the standard tools and plugins - so that it was more compatible than it is currently.

I'm going to be building an openstack as a home lab experiment. I definitely am going to experiment with a couple of these clustering jobs like:
http://deis.io/
https://flynn.io/
http://controlcenter.io/

But I'm in total agreement about clustering setups being fragile. It takes a ton of work to get most things into a state where you can cluster it, and your work is not over once you get it there. I mean sure once all apps are built to: http://12factor.net/ specifications maybe this will be easier. But I digress.

So one method, would be this config file method, given the config file then octo can branch off and do other things than the normal docker build and run. There could be specified multiple other octohosts that the repo would be shipped off to and build and ran in multiple datacenters. Or perhaps one of the aforementioned projects as another clustering provider. At first, this would be best suited for app replication, SQL and data storage would be left to other methods. However, I can envision methods of accomplishing that as well through automated methods.

Another, kind of silly thought. How about we go about this inversely? In that you can run 'privileged' docker containers, has anyone run octohost inside a docker container yet? And if so, has anyone put octohost inside deis/flynn/etc?

I've been working on this in my spare time over the last few days and it's working pretty well:

  1. Setup an octohost based on tonight's master - that's going to be the machine you push to and point DNS to. I'm using a Digital Ocean box with Private Networking and this user-data: https://gist.github.com/darron/758b294632a6293c0501
  2. Create a Docker swarm - run the Swarm manager on the local machine: https://gist.github.com/darron/b724b4c42dbfe0fc8716
  3. Run an S3 backed registry on localhost: docker run -e SETTINGS_FLAVOR=s3 -e AWS_BUCKET=octoregistry -e AWS_KEY=KEY_GOES_HERE -e AWS_SECRET=SECRET_KEY_GOES_HERE -e SEARCH_BACKEND=sqlalchemy -p 5000:5000 -d registry
  4. Add these to /etc/default/octohost: echo 'DOCKER_HOST="tcp://0.0.0.0:2375"' >> /etc/default/octohost and echo 'PRIVATE_REGISTRY="localhost:5000"' >> /etc/default/octohost
  5. You want to make sure you're pointed at the Swarm port: export DOCKER_HOST="tcp://0.0.0.0:2375"
  6. Spin up 2 more octohost nodes, make sure they join the Consul and Swarm clusters and each run a local registry. Node 2: https://gist.github.com/darron/899fb0cd829420ec5f9b Node 3: https://gist.github.com/darron/93d64a999746cfb4bb4b
  7. Add your ssh key to the first octohost: cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa root@ip.address.here "sudo gitreceive upload-key your-name"

Now you have 3 octohost nodes and they're connected via Consul and Docker Swarm:

root@octo1:~# consul members
Node   Address             Status  Type    Build  Protocol
octo1  10.132.37.251:8301  alive   server  0.5.0  2

When you git push to the first node, it:

  1. Builds the Docker image.
  2. Pushes it to the Private Registry.
  3. Makes sure all nodes pull that image down.
  4. Launches it with Docker Swarm - on one of the nodes.

This is really good stuff! There needs to be a hollowed out volcano somewhere where we can show this technology off to people who can appreciate what awesome things are coming together here. Not saying that you HAVE to be a super villain to need/and/or appreciate what's going on here. I'm going to play around with this some more. Cheers!

Ha yeah - it's still too complicated to pull off easily - will see if
there's a better way to deploy a cluster than a bunch of shell scripts.
Maybe some Terraform.

I am thinking terraform would be the logical next step seeing as how we've already got consul in the mix, the other hashicorp products are an obvious fit. I don't like how Atlas is not open source though, there needs to be an alternative to it.

Yes - as soon as I am back (next week) - I'm going to start on it with Terraform.

This week I'm traveling and working on a presentation.

I'm presenting at Devopsdays NYC on Friday - it's titled "Scuba and Ops":

http://www.devopsdays.org/events/2015-newyork/proposals/ScubaAndOps/

We'll see how it goes to see where it's posted - it's a short one - only 5 minutes - and it's a bit of a different type of talk than I've done in the past.
