Installation and Deployment

This chapter describes how to install and deploy A-Tune.

Software and Hardware Requirements

Hardware Requirement

  • Huawei Kunpeng 920 processor

Software Requirement

  • OS: openEuler 20.03 LTS

Environment Preparation

For details about installing an openEuler OS, see openEuler 20.03 LTS Installation Guide.

A-Tune Installation

This chapter describes the installation modes and methods of the A-Tune.

Installation Modes

A-Tune can be installed in single-node or distributed mode.

  • Single-node mode

    The client and server are installed on the same system.

  • Distributed mode

    The client and server are installed on different systems.

The installation modes are as follows:

  

Installation Procedure

To install the A-Tune, perform the following steps:

  1. Mount an openEuler ISO file.

    # mount openEuler-20.03-LTS-aarch64-dvd.iso /mnt
    
  2. Configure the local yum source.

    # vim /etc/yum.repos.d/local.repo
    

    The configured contents are as follows:

    [local]
    name=local
    baseurl=file:///mnt
    gpgcheck=1
    enabled=1
    
  3. Import the GPG public key of the RPM digital signature to the system.

    # rpm --import /mnt/RPM-GPG-KEY-openEuler
    
  4. Install an A-Tune server.

    NOTE:
    In this step, both the server and client software packages are installed. For the single-node deployment, skip Step 5.

    # yum install atune -y
    
  5. For a distributed mode, install an A-Tune client.

    # yum install atune-client -y
    
  6. Check whether the installation is successful.

    # rpm -qa | grep atune
    atune-client-xxx
    atune-db-xxx
    atune-xxx
    

    If the preceding information is displayed, the installation is successful.

A-Tune Deployment

This chapter describes how to deploy A-Tune.

Overview

The configuration items in the A-Tune configuration file /etc/atuned/atuned.cnf are described as follows:

  • A-Tune service startup configuration

    You can modify the parameter value as required.

    • protocol: Protocol used by the gRPC service. The value can be unix or tcp. unix indicates the local socket communication mode, and tcp indicates the socket listening port mode. The default value is unix.

    • address: Listening IP address of the gRPC service. The default value is unix socket. If the gRPC service is deployed in distributed mode, change the value to the listening IP address.

    • port: Listening port of the gRPC server. The value ranges from 0 to 65535. If protocol is set to unix, you do not need to set this parameter.

    • rest_port: Listening port of the system REST service. The value ranges from 0 to 65535.

    • sample_num: Number of samples collected when the system executes the analysis process.

  • System information

    System is the parameter information required for system optimization. You must modify the parameter information according to the actual situation.

    • disk: Disk information to be collected during the analysis process or specified disk during disk optimization.

    • network: NIC information to be collected during the analysis process or specified NIC during NIC optimization.

    • user: User name used for ulimit optimization. Currently, only the user root is supported.

    • tls: SSL/TLS certificate verification for the gRPC and HTTP services of A-Tune. This is disabled by default. After TLS is enabled, you need to set the following environment variables before running the atune-adm command to communicate with the server:

      • export ATUNE_TLS=yes
      • export ATUNE_CLICERT=<Client certificate path>
    • tlsservercertfile: path of the gPRC server certificate.

    • tlsserverkeyfile: gPRC server key path.

    • tlshttpcertfile: HTTP server certificate path.

    • tlshttpkeyfile: HTTP server key path.

    • tlshttpcacertfile: CA certificate path of the HTTP server.

  • Log information

    Change the log path and level based on the site requirements. By default, the log information is stored in /var/log/messages.

  • Monitor information

    Hardware information that is collected by default when the system is started.

Example

#################################### server ###############################
# atuned config
[server]
# the protocol grpc server running on
# ranges: unix or tcp
protocol = unix

# the address that the grpc server to bind to
# default is unix socket /var/run/atuned/atuned.sock
# ranges: /var/run/atuned/atuned.sock or ip 
address = /var/run/atuned/atuned.sock

# the atuned grpc listening port, default is 60001
# the port can be set between 0 to 65535 which not be used
port = 60001

# the rest service listening port, default is 8383
# the port can be set between 0 to 65535 which not be used
rest_port = 8383

# when run analysis command, the numbers of collected data.
# default is 20

# Enable gRPC and http server authentication SSL/TLS
# default is false

#################################### monitor ###############################
[monitor]
# With the module and format of the MPI, the format is {module}_{purpose}
# The module is Either "mem", "net", "cpu", "storage"
# The purpose is "topo"
module = mem_topo, cpu_topo

#################################### system ###############################
# you can add arbitrary key-value here, just like key = value
# you can use the key in the profile

# the disk to be analysis
disk = sda

# the network to be analysis

user = root

Starting A-Tune

After the A-Tune is installed, you need to start the A-Tune service.

  • Start the atuned service.

    # systemctl start atuned
    
  • To query the status of the atuned service, run the following command:

    # systemctl status atuned
    

    If the following information is displayed, the service is started successfully:
