Pachyderm Deployment Manifest¶
This section provides an overview of the Kubernetes manifest that you use to deploy your Pachyderm cluster. This section is provided for your reference and does not include configuration steps. If you are familiar with Kubernetes or do not have immediate questions about the configuration parameters, you can skip this section and proceed to Configuring Persistent Disk Parameters.
When you run the
pachctl deploy command, Pachyderm generates a JSON-encoded
Kubernetes manifest which consists of sections that
describe a Pachyderm deployment.
Pachyderm deploys the following sets of application components:
pachd: The main Pachyderm pod.
etcd: The administrative datastore for
dash: The web-based UI for Pachyderm Enterprise Edition.
pachctl deploy custom --persistent-disk <persistent disk backend> --object-store <object store backend> \ <persistent disk arg1> <persistent disk arg 2> \ <object store arg 1> <object store arg 2> <object store arg 3> <object store arg 4> \ [[--dynamic-etcd-nodes n] | [--static-etcd-volume <volume name>]] [optional flags]
As you can see in the example command above, you can run the
pachctl deploy custom command with different flags that generate
an appropriate manifest for your infrastructure. The flags broadly fall
into the following categories:
||Configures the storage resource for etcd. Pachyderm uses etcd
to manage administrative metadata. User data is stored in an
object store, not in etcd.
||Configures the object store that Pachyderm uses for storing all
user data that you want to be versioned and managed.
|Optional flags||Optional flags that are not required to deploy Pachyderm but
enable you to configure access, output format, logging verbosity,
and other parameters.
Kubernetes Manifest Parameters¶
Your Kubernetes manifest includes sections that describe the configuration of your Pachyderm cluster.
The manifest includes the following sections:
