Pluggable Provisioning MechanismΒΆ

Sahara could be integrated with 3rd party management tools like Apache Ambari and Cloudera Management Console. The integration is achieved using plugin mechanism.

In short, responsibilities are divided between Sahara core and plugin as follows. Sahara interacts with user and provisions infrastructure (VMs). Plugin installs and configures Hadoop cluster on the VMs. Optionally Plugin could deploy management and monitoring tools for the cluster. Sahara provides plugin with utility methods to work with VMs.

A plugin must extend sahara.plugins.provisioning:ProvisioningPluginBase class and implement all the required methods. Read Plugin SPI for details.

The instance objects provided by Sahara have remote property which could be used to work with VM. The remote is a context manager so you can use it in with instance.remote: statements. The list of available commands could be found in sahara.utils.remote.InstanceInteropHelper. See Vanilla plugin source for usage examples.
