Day 2 Lifecycle Management for OpenSearch Cluster Using KubeDB


AppsCode held a webinar on “OpenSearch OpsRequests - Day 2 Lifecycle Management for OpenSearch Cluster Using KubeDB” on 12th October 2022. The contents discussed on the webinar:

  • OpenSearch OpsRequest and how it works
  • Supported OpsRequests for OpenSearch
  • Supported OpenSearch clustering methods
  • Deploy OpenSearch Cluster and OpenSearch-Dashboards Using KubeDB
  • Horizontal Scaling
  • Vertical Scaling
  • Version upgrade
  • Restart your cluster

Description of the Webinar

It is required to install the followings to get started:

  • KubeDB Provisioner
  • KubeDB Ops-Manager
  • KubeDB Dashboards

Live demo of the webinar is started with provisioning a TLS secured OpenSearch Cluster of 4 nodes using KubeDB Provisioner Operator and a TLS secured single node OpenSearch-Dashboards using KubeDB Dashboards operator referring to the OpenSearch database.

When the cluster and it’s dashboard got ready, Horizontal scaling is demonstrated by horizontally upscaling of the cluster using KubeDB HorizontalScaling OpsRequest. Then the OpenSearch cluster is scaled vertically with KubeDB VerticalScaling OpsRequest. Memory and CPU of the database containers were vertically scaled using this OpsRequest. Some basic CRUD operations using the OpenSearch-Dashboards was also shown in the process.

After that, the initially provisioned OpenSearch-1.2.2 was upgraded to OpenSearch-1.3.2 using KubeDB Upgrade OpsRequest. The OpenSearch-Dashboards also got upgraded to compatible version autonomously triggered by the KubeDB Dashboards operator after the OpenSearch cluster got upgraded.

Lastly, It’s demonstrated how to restart the OpenSearch Cluster using KubeDB Restart OpsRequest.
