Install a Collector in Kubernetes

Introduction

In this section, we'll create a Kubernetes (k8s) Deployment and Service for the Collector.

The configuration file and installation key will be stored as a Secret.

Verify that Java is installed before you begin the Collector installation.

Run the Collector

  1. Create a private folder
  2. In the private folder, create the file installation.key, which contains your installation key.
  3. In the private folder, create the collector.properties file based on the following template.

You'll find additional templates in GitHub.

jvmPath=${JAVA_HOME}/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so
libraryPath=/opt/takipi/lib

takipi.backend.url=https://backend.overops.com
takipi.storage.test.url=https://s3.amazonaws.com/app-takipi-com/ConnectionTest
takipi.jvm.heap.size=1G
takipi.listen.port=6060
takipi.server.name=docker

Tip

Are you running OverOps Server On-Premises? Set takipi.backend.url and takipi.storage.test.url to point to your On-Premises installation.
For example:

takipi.backend.url=http://overops-server-service:8080
takipi.storage.test.url=http://overops-server-service:8080/service/png
  1. Create a Secret from these files:
kubectl create secret generic overops-collector \
--from-file=./private/collector.properties \
--from-file=./private/installation.key
  1. Create the Deployment and Service using overops-collector.yaml, which is available on Github:.
kubectl apply -f overops-collector.yaml
  1. Verify connectivity on https://app.overops.com/ in your browser.

Tip

The overops/collector Docker images are tagged by version.
To update the Collector to a specific version (in this example, to version 4.30.11):

kubectl set image deployment.v1.apps/overops-collector-deployment overops-collector=overops/collector:4.30.11 --record
