Quick Start with yaml files
Start kadalu operator
$ kubectl apply -f https://github.com/kadalu/kadalu/releases/latest/download/kadalu-operator.yaml $ kubectl apply -f https://github.com/kadalu/kadalu/releases/latest/download/csi-nodeplugin.yaml
You have different flavors of operator yaml files available. Mainly for kubernetes (default), openshift, RKE, Microk8s. Find the relevant file from here. Just remember to use the raw file as argument to
Note: Openshift may have some Security Context Constraints, which can be applied only by admins, Run
oc login -u system:admin to login as admin.
Prepare and start storage exports
Identify the devices available from nodes and run the following command to add storage to Kadalu.
$ kubectl get nodes kube1 # <-- known your hostname, which needs to be given in storage config below. ... ...
|if your host is running RHEL/CentOS 7.x series or Ubuntu/Debian older than 18.04, you may need to do below tasks before adding storage to kadalu.|
# On CentOS7.x/Ubuntu-16.04 sudo wipefs -a -t dos -f /dev/sdc sudo mkfs.xfs /dev/sdc
Once the device is ready, inform the kadalu operator that it can be used as storage.
# File: sample-storage-config.yaml --- apiVersion: kadalu-operator.storage/v1alpha1 kind: KadaluStorage metadata: # This will be used as name of PV Hosting Volume name: storage-pool-1 spec: type: Replica1 storage: - node: kube1 device: /dev/sdc
$ kubectl apply -f sample-storage-config.yaml
device, kadalu also supports
pvc as storage options.
Replica3 type. This maps to glusterfs volume replication feature. It also support
External as a type, where gluster volume may be managed externally, and kadalu is used to provide only CSI access.
Operator will start the storage export pods as required. And, in 2 steps, your storage system is up and running.
Check the status of Pods using,
$ kubectl get pods -n kadalu NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE server-storage-pool-1-kube1-0 1/1 Running 0 84s csi-nodeplugin-5hfms 3/3 Running 0 30m csi-nodeplugin-924cc 3/3 Running 0 30m csi-nodeplugin-cbjl9 3/3 Running 0 30m csi-provisioner-0 5/5 Running 0 30m operator-6dfb65dcdd-r664t 1/1 Running 0 30m
After this, go ahead and create your PVC and attach it to other applications.
