Setup and manage a Apache Mesos cluster in EC2

Project description

The CGCloud plugin for Mesos lets you setup a fully configured Apache Mesos cluster in EC2 in just minutes, regardless of the number of nodes.


The cgcloud-mesos package requires that the cgcloud-core package and its prerequisites are present.


Read the entire section before pasting any commands and ensure that all prerequisites are installed. It is recommended to install this plugin into the virtualenv you created for CGCloud:

source ~/cgcloud/bin/activate
pip install cgcloud-mesos

If you get DistributionNotFound: No distributions matching the version for cgcloud-mesos, try running pip install --pre cgcloud-mesos.

Be sure to configure cgcloud-core before proceeding.


Modify your .profile or .bash_profile by adding the following line:


Login and out (or, on OS X, start a new Terminal tab/window).

Verify the installation by running:

cgcloud list-roles

The output should include the mesos-box role.


Create a single t2.micro box to serve as the template for the cluster nodes:

cgcloud create -IT mesos-box

The I option stops the box once it is fully set up and takes an image (AMI) of it. The T option terminates the box after that.

Now create a cluster by booting a master and the slaves from that AMI:

cgcloud create-cluster mesos -s 2 -t m3.large

This will launch a master and two slaves using the m3.large instance type.

SSH into the master:

cgcloud ssh mesos-master

… or the first slave:

cgcloud ssh -o 0 mesos-slave

… or the second slave:

cgcloud ssh -o 1 mesos-slave
