Install zookeeper using puppet without module

Hi,

In this post I was given the task to provide a standalone zookeeper cluster with basic auth on the latest version.

The reason that happened is because we are using a very old module on our Kafka clusters and a new requirement appeared to install the latest version of 3.5.5.

The old module had only the possibility to install the package from apt repo, which was not an option since the last version available on Ubuntu Xenial is at least two years old.

To complete this task, a different method was required. I would have to grab it with wget and add the rest of the files to make it functional.

Let us start with the puppet manifest and from that I will add the rest.

class zookeeperstd {
  $version = hiera("zookeeperstd::version","3.5.5")
  $authenabled = hiera("zookeeperstd::authenabled",false)
  $server_jvm_flags = hiera('zookeeperstd::jvm_flags', undef)
    group { 'zookeeper':
        ensure => 'present',
    } 
    user {'zookeeper':
        ensure => 'present',
        home => '/var/lib/zookeeper',
        shell => '/bin/false',
        }
    wget::fetch { 'zookeeper':
        source      => "https://www-eu.apache.org/dist/zookeeper/stable/apache-zookeeper-${version}-bin.tar.gz",
        destination => "/opt/apache-zookeeper-${version}-bin.tar.gz",
        } ->
    archive { "/opt/apache-zookeeper-${version}-bin.tar.gz":
        creates      => "/opt/apache-zookeeper-${version}-bin",
        ensure        => present,
        extract       => true,
        extract_path  => '/opt',
        cleanup       => true,
    } ->
    file { "/opt/apache-zookeeper-${version}-bin":
        ensure    => directory,
        owner     => 'zookeeper',
        group      => 'zookeeper',
        require     => [ User['zookeeper'], Group['zookeeper'], ],
        recurse => true,
    } ->
    file { '/opt/zookeeper/':
        ensure    => link,
        target    => "/opt/apache-zookeeper-${version}-bin",
        owner     => 'zookeeper',
        group      => 'zookeeper',
        require     => [ User['zookeeper'], Group['zookeeper'], ],
    }
    file { '/var/lib/zookeeper':
        ensure    => directory,
        owner     => 'zookeeper',
        group      => 'zookeeper',
        require     => [ User['zookeeper'], Group['zookeeper'], ],
        recurse    => true,
    }
# in order to know which servers are in the cluster a role fact needs to be defined on each machine
    $hostshash = query_nodes(" v1_role='zookeeperstd'").sort
    $hosts_hash = $hostshash.map |$value| { [$value, seeded_rand(254, $value)+1] }.hash
    $overide_hosts_hash = hiera_hash('profiles_opqs::kafka_hosts_hash', $hosts_hash)
    $overide_hosts = $overide_hosts_hash.keys.sort
    if $overide_hosts_hash.size() != $overide_hosts_hash.values.unique.size() {
        #notify {"Duplicate IDs detected! ${overide_hosts_hash}": }
        $overide_hosts_hash2 = $hosts.map |$index, $value| { [$value, $index+1] }.hash
  } else {
        $overide_hosts_hash2 = $overide_hosts_hash
    }
	$hosts = $overide_hosts_hash2
	$data_dir = "/var/lib/zookeeper"
	$tick_time        = 2000
        $init_limit       = 10
        $sync_limit       = 5

	$myid = $hosts[$::fqdn]
    file { '/var/lib/zookeeper/myid':
        content => "${myid}",
    }

	file { '/opt/zookeeper/conf/zoo.cfg':
        content => template("${module_name}/zoo.cfg.erb"),
   }
   if $authenabled {
   
    $superpass        = hiera("zookeeperstd::super_pass", 'super-admin')
    $zoopass          = hiera("zookeeperstd::zookeeper_pass", 'zookeeper-admin')
    $clientpass        = hiera("zookeeperstd::client_pass", 'client-admin')
    
    file { '/opt/zookeeper/conf/zoo_jaas.config':
        content => template("${module_name}/zoo_jaas.config.erb"),
   }
   }
     file { '/opt/zookeeper/conf/java.env':
        content => template("${module_name}/java.zookeeper.env.erb"),
        mode => "0755",
    }
     file { '/opt/zookeeper/conf/log4j.properties':
        content => template("${module_name}/log4j.zookeeper.properties.erb"),
    }
   
    file {'/etc/systemd/system/zookeeper.service':
        source  => 'puppet:///modules/work/zookeeper.service',
        mode => "644",
        } ->
    service { 'zookeeper':
        ensure   => running,
        enable   => true,
        provider => systemd,
        }
}

As far as i managed to adapt some file from the existing module, here are the rest of the additional details.

# To avoid seeks ZooKeeper allocates space in the transaction log file in
# blocks of preAllocSize kilobytes. The default block size is 64M. One reason
# for changing the size of the blocks is to reduce the block size if snapshots
# are taken more often. (Also, see snapCount).
#preAllocSize=65536

# Clients can submit requests faster than ZooKeeper can process them,
# especially if there are a lot of clients. To prevent ZooKeeper from running
# out of memory due to queued requests, ZooKeeper will throttle clients so that
# there is no more than globalOutstandingLimit outstanding requests in the
# system. The default limit is 1,000.ZooKeeper logs transactions to a
# transaction log. After snapCount transactions are written to a log file a
# snapshot is started and a new transaction log file is started. The default
# snapCount is 10,000.
#snapCount=1000

# If this option is defined, requests will be will logged to a trace file named
# traceFile.year.month.day.

# Leader accepts client connections. Default value is "yes". The leader machine
# coordinates updates. For higher update throughput at thes slight expense of
# read throughput the leader can be configured to not accept clients and focus
# on coordination.

And the last but not the least.

Also, if you want to enable simple MD5 authentication, in hiera you will need to add the following two lines.

zookeeperstd::authenabled: true
zookeeperstd::jvm_flags: "-Djava.security.auth.login.config=/opt/zookeeper/conf/zoo_jaas.config"

If there is a simpler approach, feel free to leave me a message on Linkedin or Twitter.
