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 SP1

Environment Preparation

For details about installing an openEuler OS, see openEuler 20.03 LTS SP1 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-SP1-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
    # yum install atune-engine -y
    
  5. For a distributed mode, install an A-Tune client on associated server.

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

    # rpm -qa | grep atune
    atune-client-xxx
    atune-db-xxx
    atune-xxx
    atune-engine-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.
    • connect: IP address list of the nodes where the A-Tune is located when the A-Tune is deployed in a cluster. IP addresses are separated by commas (,).
    • rest_host: Listening address of the REST service. The default value is localhost.
    • rest_port: Listening port of the REST service. The value ranges from 0 to 65535. The default value is 8383.
    • engine_host: IP address for connecting to the A-Tune engine service of the system.
    • engine_port: Port for connecting to the A-Tune engine service of the system.
    • sample_num: Number of samples collected when the system executes the analysis process. The default value is 20.
    • interval: Interval for collecting samples when the system executes the analysis process. The default value is 5s.
    • grpc_tls: Indicates whether to enable SSL/TLS certificate verification for the gRPC service. By default, this function is disabled. After grpc_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 ATUNED_CACERT=<Path of the client CA certificate>
      • export ATUNED_CLIENTCERT=<Client certificate path>
      • export ATUNED_CLIENTKEY=<Client key path>
      • export ATUNED_SERVERCN=server
    • tlsservercafile: Path of the gPRC server's CA certificate.
    • tlsservercertfile: Path of the gPRC server certificate.
    • tlsserverkeyfile: Path of the gPRC server key.
    • rest_tls: Indicates whether to enable SSL/TLS certificate verification for the REST service. This function is enabled by default.
    • tlsrestcacertfile: Path of the server's CA certificate of the REST service.
    • tlsrestservercertfile: Path of the server certificate of the REST service.
    • tlsrestserverkeyfile: Indicates the key path of the REST service.
    • engine_tls: Indicates whether to enable SSL/TLS certificate verification for the A-Tune engine service. This function is enabled by default..
    • tlsenginecacertfile: Path of the client CA certificate of the A-Tune engine service.
    • tlsengineclientcertfile: Client certificate path of the A-Tune engine service.
    • tlsengineclientkeyfile: Client key path of the A-Tune engine service.
  • 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.
  • Log information

    Change the log level as required. The default log level is info. Log information is recorded in the /var/log/messages file.

  • Monitor information

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

  • Tuning information

    Tuning is the parameter information required for offline tuning.

    • noise: Evaluation value of Gaussian noise.
    • sel_feature: Indicates whether to enable the function of generating the importance ranking of offline tuning parameters. By default, this function is disabled.
