Control Plane YAML Specification

iofogctl allows users to deploy Edge Compute Networks ('ECNs'). The various resources which constitute an ECN are specified within YAML files for iofogctl to consume.

Kubernetes Control Plane

The Kubernetes Control Plane specifies all the resources required to deploy the ioFog Control Plane on a Kubernetes cluster.

apiVersion: iofog.org/v2
kind: KubernetesControlPlane
metadata:
  name: buffalo
  namespace: default
spec:
  iofogUser:
    name: Foo
    surname: Bar
    email: user@domain.com
    password: g9hr823rhuoi
  config: ~/.kube/config
Field Description
iofogUser Credentials registered against ioFog Controller REST API.
config Path to Kubernetes configuration file that iofogctl uses to install Controller service to Kubernetes cluster. (Note: The namespace used with iofogctl will be the kubernetes namespace to which your components will be deployed)

Remote Control Plane

The Remote Control Plane component specifies all the resources required to deploy the ioFog Control Plane on a set of remote hosts.

apiVersion: iofog.org/v2
kind: ControlPlane
metadata:
  name: buffalo
  namespace: default
spec:
  iofogUser:
    name: Foo
    surname: Bar
    email: user@domain.com
    password: g9hr823rhuoi
  controllers:
    - name: vanilla
      host: 30.40.50.3
      ssh:
        user: foo
        keyFile: ~/.ssh/id_rsa
        port: 22
Field Description
iofogUser Credentials registered against ioFog Controller REST API.
controllers List of Controller instances.
controller.name User-defined unique identifier of Controller instance within an iofogctl namespace. Must start and end with lowercase alphanumeric character. Can include '-' character.
controller.host Hostname of remote host that iofogctl must SSH into to install Controller service.
controller.ssh.user Username of remote host that iofogctl must SSH into to install Controller service.
controller.ssh.keyFile Path to private SSH key that iofogctl must use to SSH into remote host to install Controller service.
controller.ssh.port Port to use with SSH. Optional (default: 22).

Local Control Plane

The Local Control Plane component specifies all the resources required to deploy the ioFog Control Plane as a local docker container.

apiVersion: iofog.org/v2
kind: LocalControlPlane
metadata:
  name: buffalo
  namespace: default
spec:
  iofogUser:
    name: Foo
    surname: Bar
    email: user@domain.com
    password: g9hr823rhuoi
  controller:
    container:
      image: iofog/controller:2.0.0-rc1
Field Description
iofogUser Credentials registered against ioFog Controller REST API.
controller Controller specification.
controller.image Docker image to use as the Controller.

Remote Controller

We can expand a Remote Control Plane by deploying a new Controller.

apiVersion: iofog.org/v2
kind: Controller
metadata:
  name: alpaca
  namespace: default
spec:
  host: 30.40.50.5
  ssh:
    user: foo
    keyFile: ~/.ssh/id_rsa
    port: 22
Field Description
name User-defined unique identifier of Controller instance within an iofogctl namespace. Must start and end with lowercase alphanumeric character. Can include '-' character.
host Hostname of remote host that iofogctl must SSH into to install Controller service.
ssh.user Username of remote host that iofogctl must SSH into to install Controller service.
ssh.keyFile Path to private SSH key that iofogctl must use to SSH into remote host to install Controller service.
ssh.port Port to use with SSH. Optional (default: 22)

Remote Agent

Agents are components of an ECN which run on edge nodes. They communicate with Controllers to allow your edge nodes to host Microservices.

apiVersion: iofog.org/v2
kind: Agent
metadata:
  name: meerkat
  namespace: default
spec:
  host: 30.40.50.6
  ssh:
    user: foo
    keyFile: ~/.ssh/id_rsa
    port: 22
Field Description
name User-defined unique identifier of Agent instance within an iofogctl namespace. Must start and end with lowercase alphanumeric character. Can include '-' character.
host Hostname of remote host that iofogctl must SSH into to install Agent service.
ssh.user Username of remote host that iofogctl must SSH into to install Agent service.
ssh.keyFile Path to private SSH key that iofogctl must use to SSH into remote host to install Agent service.
ssh.port Port to use with SSH. Optional (default: 22).

Edge Compute Network

An entire ECN can be specified within a single YAML file.

Multiple resources can be incorporated into a single YAML file using --- as a separator.
