Cluster Guide#

Name: Kazoo Dedicated Cluster Guide

Description: A guide for installing, configuring and managing your own dedicated Kazoo cluster.

Let's assume the following 7 server clusters in 2 zones.

IP addressing scheme#

10.100 = zone 100 10.200 = zone 200 10.x00.10.x = CouchDB 10.x00.20.x = FreeSWITCH 10.x00.30.x = RabbitMQ 10.x00.40.x = Kazoo 10.x00.50.x = Kamailio

Server hostnames and IP addresses#

Using IP addressing scheme above.

ZONE 1 ZONE 2
couch1.z100.somedomain.com 10.100.10.1 couch1.z200.somedomain.com 10.200.10.1
couch2.z100.somedomain.com 10.100.10.2 couch2.z200.somedomain.com 10.200.10.2
couch3.z100.somedomain.com 10.100.10.3 couch3.z200.somedomain.com 10.200.10.3
freeeswitch1.z100.somedomain.com 10.100.20.1 freeswitch1.z200.somedomain.com 10.200.20.1
rabbit1.z100.somedomain.com 10.100.30.1 rabbit1.z200.somedomain.com 10.200.30.1
kazoo1.z100.somedomain.com 10.100.40.1 kazoo1.z200.somedomain.com 10.200.40.1
kamailio1.z100.somedomain.com 10.100.50.1 kamailio1.z200.somedomain.com 10.200.50.1

Cluster Bigcouch#

This needs to be done before installing kazoo.

On each Bigcouch node configure z=2 in /etc/kazoo/bigcouch/local.ini as follows:

[cluster]
q=3
r=2
w=2
n=3
z=2

Cluster together the Bigcouch nodes from couch1.z100 (in this example).

curl http://couch1.z100.somedomain.com:5986/nodes/bigcouch@couch1.z100.somedomain.com Returns {"_id":"bigcouch@couch1.z100.somedomain.com","_rev":"3-b13d076f367df4d0c52b236e654b836c"}

Now add the zone to this Bigcouch server and cluster together the other servers.

curl -X PUT couch1.z100.somedomain.com:5986/nodes/bigcouch@couch1.z100.somedomain.com -d '{"_rev":3-b13d076f367df4d0c52b236e654b836c", "zone":"z100"}'
curl -X PUT couch1.z100.somedomain.com:5986/nodes/bigcouch@couch2.z100.somedomain.com -d '{"zone":"z100"}'
curl -X PUT couch1.z100.somedomain.com:5986/nodes/bigcouch@couch3.z100.somedomain.com -d '{"zone":"z100"}'
curl -X PUT couch1.z100.somedomain.com:5986/nodes/bigcouch@couch1.z200.somedomain.com -d '{"zone":"z200"}'
curl -X PUT couch1.z100.somedomain.com:5986/nodes/bigcouch@couch2.z200.somedomain.com -d '{"zone":"z200"}'
curl -X PUT couch1.z100.somedomain.com:5986/nodes/bigcouch@couch3.z200.somedomain.com -d '{"zone":"z200"}'

Verify cluster: curl http://couch1.z100.somedomain.com:5984/_membership Should return:

{"all_nodes":["bigcouch@couch3.z200.somedomain.com","bigcouch@couch2.z200.somedomain.com","bigcouch@couch1.z200.somedomain.com",
"bigcouch@couch3.z100.somedomain.com","bigcouch@couch2.z100.somedomain.com","bigcouch@couch1.z100.somedomain.com"],

"cluster_nodes":["bigcouch@couch3.z200.somedomain.com","bigcouch@couch2.z200.somedomain.com","bigcouch@couch1.z200.somedomain.com",
"bigcouch@couch3.z100.somedomain.com"","bigcouch@couch2.z100.somedomain.com","bigcouch@couch1.z100.somedomain.com"]}

You can do that on each Bigcouch server to verify they all have the same configuration.

To verify zone configuration on each document on each server.

curl http://couch1.z100.somedomain.com:5986/nodes/bigcouch@couch1.z100.somedomain.com
curl http://couch1.z100.somedomain.com:5986/nodes/bigcouch@couch2.z100.somedomain.com
...

etc.

Kazoo Config#

After installing kazoo in both zones edit /etc/kazoo/core/config.ini. This is exactly the same on both.

; section are between [] = [section]
; key = value
; to comment add ";" in front of the line
;[amqp]
;uri = "amqp://guest:guest@127.0.0.1:5672"

[zone]
name = "z100"
amqp_uri = "amqp://guest:guest@10.100.30.1"

[zone]
name = "z200"
amqp_uri = "amqp://guest:guest@10.200.30.1"

[bigcouch]
compact_automatically = true
cookie = change_me
ip = "127.0.0.1"
port = 15984
; username = "kazoo"
; password = "supermegaexcellenttelephonyplatform"
admin_port = 15986

[kazoo_apps]
cookie = change_me
zone = "z100"
host = "kazoo1.z100.somedomain.com"

[kazoo_apps]
cookie = change_me
zone = "z200"
host = "kazoo1.z200.somedomain.com"

[ecallmgr]
cookie = change_me
zone = "z100"
host = "kazoo1.z100.somedomain.com"

[ecallmgr]
cookie = change_me
zone = "z200"
host = "kazoo1.z200.somedomain.com"

[log]
syslog = info
console = notice
file = error

Assign FreeSWITCH to Ecallmgr zones#

Add local FreeSWITCH server(s) to local zone.

So on kazoo1.z100 run: sup ecallmgr_maintenance add_fs_node freeswitch@freeswitch1.z100.somedomain.com 'false'

and on kazoo1.z200 run: sup ecallmgr_maintenance add_fs_node freeswitch@freeswitch1.z200.somedomain.com 'false'

If starting ecallmgr on it's own via systemd or init the command would be: sup -necallmgr ecallmgr_maintenance add_fs_node...

Refresh to get above changes loaded from bigcouch sup kapps_maintenance refresh "system_config"

Verify on Kazoo in each zone that only FreeSWITCH for that zone is listed sup ecallmgr_maintenance list_fs_nodes

If ecallmgr is started separately, with systemd or init, the command would be: sup -necallmgr ecallmgr_maintenance list_fs_nodes

HAProxy config#

Edit /etc/kazoo/haproxy/haproxy.cfg on zone 100 Kazoo and FreeSWITCH server as follows.

global
        log /dev/log local0 info
        maxconn 4096
        user haproxy
        group daemon
        stats socket    /var/run/haproxy/haproxy.sock mode 777

        log global
        mode http
        option httplog
        option dontlognull
    option log-health-checks
        option redispatch
        option httpchk GET /
        option allbackups
        option http-server-close
        maxconn 2000
        retries 3
        timeout connect 6000ms
        timeout client 12000ms
        timeout server 12000ms

listen haproxy-stats 127.0.0.1:22002
  mode http
  stats uri /

Kamailio Config#

Each Kamailio configuration at /etc/kazoo/kamailio/local.cfg needs to be configured with it's hostname, IP address, and all RabbitMQ servers. The following config would be for the kamailio1.z100 server.

## CHANGE "" TO YOUR SERVERS HOSTNAME
#!substdef "!MY_HOSTNAME!kamailio1.z100.somedomain.com!g"

## CHANGE "127.0.0.1" TO YOUR SERVERS IP ADDRESS
##     Usually your public IP.  If you need
##     to listen on additional ports or IPs
##     add them in "BINDINGS" at the bottom.
#!substdef "!MY_IP_ADDRESS!10.100.50.1!g"

## CHANGE "kazoo://guest:guest@127.0.0.1:5672" TO THE AMQP URL
##     This should be the primary RabbitMQ server
##     in the zone that this server will service.
#!substdef "!MY_AMQP_URL!kazoo://guest:guest@10.100.30.1:5672!g"

## CHANGE "kazoo://guest:guest@127.0.0.1:5672" TO THE AMQP URL for the other zone.
##     This uses the existing MY_AMQP_SECONDARY_URL variable defined in default.cfg
##     Note the addition of the "zone=" part in the middle
#!substdef "!MY_AMQP_SECONDARY_URL!zone=z200;kazoo://guest:guest@10.200.30.1:5672!g"

Post Install#

To view the entire cluster and zone setup, enter the following on either kazoo server. kazoo-applications status

A properly configured cluster and zone setup will appear as follows.

The above assumes ecallmgr is running as an app on the kazoo server. If the ecallmgr apps are configured to start separately, with systemd or init, on the kazoo servers or on their own servers, they will appear as their own nodes in the above status.
