Orchestrator for multi-host Docker deployments

Project description

# MaestroNG

[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/signalfx/maestro-ng.png)](https://travis-ci.org/signalfx/maestro-ng) [![Docs](https://readthedocs.org/projects/maestro-ng/badge/?version=latest)](http://maestro-ng.readthedocs.io)

_MaestroNG is an orchestrator of Docker-based, multi-hosts environments._

The original [Maestro](http://github.com/toscanini/maestro) was developed as a single-host orchestrator for Docker-based deployments. Given the state of Docker at the time of its writing, it was a great first step towards orchestration of deployments using Docker containers as the unit of application distribution.

Docker having made significant advancements since then, deployments and environments spanning across several hosts are becoming more and more common and are in the need for some orchestration.

Based off ideas from the original Maestro and taking inspiration from Docker’s _links_ feature, MaestroNG makes the deployment and control of complex, multi-host environments using Docker containers possible and easy to use. Maestro of course supports declared dependencies between services and makes sure to honor those during environment bring up.

## What is Maestro?

MaestroNG is, for now, a command-line utility that allows for automatically managing the orchestrated deployment and bring up of a set of service instance containers that compose an environment on a set of target host machines.

Each host machine is expected to run a Docker daemon. Maestro will then contact the Docker daemon of each host in the environment to figure out the status of the environment and what actions to take based on the requested command.

## Dependencies

MaestroNG requires Docker 0.6.7 or newer on the hosts as it makes use of the container naming feature and bug fixes in NAT port forwarding.

You’ll also need the following Python modules, although these will be automatically installed by setuptools if you follow the instructions below.

If you plan on using the HipChat auditor, you’ll also need python-simple-hipchat.

## Installation

Maestro is distributed on the Python Package Index. You can install Maestro via _Pip_:

` $ pip install --user --upgrade maestro-ng `

If you want the bleeding edge, you can install directly from the Git repository:

` $ pip install --user --upgrade git+git://github.com/signalfx/maestro-ng `

### Note for MacOS users

The above command may fail if you installed Python and pip via Homebrew, usually with the following error message:

` error: can't combine user with prefix, exec_prefix/home, or install_(plat)base `

This is because the Homebrew formula for pip configures distutils with an installation prefix, and this cannot be combined with the use of the –user flag, as describe in https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/wiki/Homebrew-and-Python#note-on-pip-install—user.

If you encounter this problem, simply install the package without the –user flag:

` $ pip install --upgrade git+git://github.com/signalfx/maestro-ng `

### Use as a Docker container

First, build your maestro-ng image using : ` docker build -t maestro-ng . `

Then say you have a maestro-ng configuration named /fu/bar/myconf.yml

If you want to start this on a docker host without install python and its pip modules : ` docker run --rm -t -i -v /fu/bar/myconf.yml:/maestro.yaml maestro-ng <start/stop/status/clean> ` or, if the myconf.yml is in the current dir : ` docker run --rm -t -i -v $(pwd)/myconf.yml:/maestro.yaml maestro-ng <start/stop/status/clean> `
