Timeout Videoconferencing by the SRCF

Documentation

Videoconferencing

Stack used:

  • Ansible for configuration management on servers
  • BBB for the core video-conferencing software
  • Greenlight for session management frontend
  • Scalelite for load balancing
  • Prometheus and Grafana (possibly) for monitoring

Installation

Pre-run

git submodule update --init
ansible-galaxy install -r requirements.yml

Note: cloudalchemy.node-exporter requires the gnu variant of tar on macOS. (brew install gnu-tar)
Note: cloudalchemy.prometheus requires the jmespath python module on your (deployer) machine

You need to create the file vault_password (if you know, you know)

Run

ansible-playbook -u <your user> -t <the tag> main.yml

Use the relevant tags:

  • offloader for changes to latency
  • greenlight for changes the greenlight
  • loadbalancer for changes to scalelite
  • register-bbbs to register a new BBB instance (make sure to flush the redis cache before)
  • bbb-install for a new BBB machine
  • base must be run before any of these
  • base-monitoring for adding node exporter

Adding a new machine

  • Ensure that DNS is properly configured
  • Enter Hostname twice in inventory, below [all] and below the other role the machine should have, eg. [bbb]
  • Make sure your user can SSH into said machine
  • run ansible-playbook main.yml -t install-bbb
  • register your new bbb instance:
    • at the monitoring by running ansible-playbook main.yml --tags base-monitoring
    • at the loadbalancer by running ansible-playbook main.yml --tags register-bbbs
  • enable it manually in the loadbalancer
