Alpha Cluster

This is an alpha release of Ozone. Please don’t use this release in production. Please check the road map page for features under development.

The easiest way to run ozone is to download the release tarball and launch ozone via Docker. Docker will create a small ozone cluster on your machine, including the data nodes and ozone services.

Running Ozone via Docker

This assumes that you have Docker installed on the machine.

  • Download the Ozone tarball and untar it.

  • Go to the directory where the docker compose files exist and tell docker-compose to start Ozone in the background. This will start a small ozone instance on your machine.

cd ozone-0.2.1-SNAPSHOT/compose/ozone/

docker-compose up -d

To verify that ozone is working as expected, let us log into a data node and run freon, the load generator for Ozone. The exec datanode bash command will open a bash shell on the datanode. The ozone freon command is executed within the datanode container. You can quit freon via CTRL-C any time. The rk profile instructs freon to generate random keys.

docker-compose exec datanode bash
ozone freon rk

You can check out the OzoneManager UI at http://localhost:9874/ to see the activity generated by freon. While you are there, please don’t forget to check out the ozone configuration explorer.

Congratulations, You have just run your first ozone cluster.

To shutdown the cluster, please run

docker-compose down
