Subject RE: Development Activity has dropped to effectively 0, what should we do?
Date Thu, 23 Apr 2020 18:08:32 GMT
(This is only brainstorming.)

I like Metron's documentation. There has been effort and care taken there.

Ambari is nice, but given that mpack is moving behind a paywall then it seems that the groups
benefiting from the paywall can chip in to build Metron mpacks at their leisure.

Elasticsearch is popular so I can see an argument to keep it. On the flip side, Elastisearch
is not really trivial to run. Replacing that with a simple template that writes data to a
file as an example of how to write an IndexDAO (pardon if my terminology is incorrect), and
split Elasticsearch into another repo to be maintained by ELK enthusiasts would reduce the
core workload further.

Hbase might be another piece that can be put into another project and another simpler example
written that relies on something like SQLite could replace it. SQLite is relatively trivial
to set up and run.

Deployment in Ansible and maintaining the development build, with some work in documentation
on how to add modules like (as an example), Elasticsearch and Hbase for "bigger" development

How we install depends on what we're choosing to keep around. My concern is
getting core Metron's scope down to a supportable level. This entire
conversation is probably just a thought experiment until we properly limit
the rest of our scope. It's putting the cart before the horse. I want to
emphasize this, because we're having a discussion about how to install
something that in many ways doesn't actually exist yet.

A lot of the install complexity comes from managing so many moving parts at
once (ES/Solr, the UI, Kerberos, etc.). If we cut that down, I'm not sure
we need a big installer to manage everything. Plenty of projects trust
people to be able to run convenience scripts and shell commands. Again, I
think this is an academic discussion until we figure out our overall
project direction.

&amp;gt; Hi Tom -
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; Do you or anyone have enough experience to judge if it is possible
&amp;gt; leverage Ansible as a replacement to deploy a working cluster?
&amp;gt; Yes, I worked a lot on the Ansible mechanism in the early days of Metron.
&amp;gt; This was the primary deployment mechanism before we had the Ambari MPack.
&amp;gt; We found it very difficult to use Ansible to create a one-size-fits-all
&amp;gt; deployment solution. It's possible, but very difficult to get a solution
&amp;gt; that doesn't take close monitoring and manual work arounds when
&amp;gt; to use it across environments of different sizes and shapes. In terms of
&amp;gt; usability, the Ambari MPack was a big step-up in my opinion.
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; perhaps a dedicated docker image that is designed to connect with
&amp;gt; dockerized applications such as Storm, Kafka, etc..?
&amp;gt; Yes, I think that would be the way to go for a dev environment. We would
&amp;gt; able to use community supported containers for most of our underlying
&amp;gt; platform needs. Unfortunately, this alone would not help anyone deploy
&amp;gt; Metron on a cluster.

&amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; This is a good discussion and one that I haven't fully grappled
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; in my
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; own mind yet. I'll have more to add, but I just want to chime in
&amp;gt; the
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; topic of Ambari at this point.
&amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; ### Ambari and the Paywall
&amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; The problem with Ambari is that its installation mechanism requires
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; repository of compiled packages (RPMs, DEBs, etc.) To install the
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; underlying platform dependencies (like Kafka, HBase, Storm, Zk,
&amp;gt; we
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; relied on binary packages that were made freely available by
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; Cloudera/Hortonworks. As of this past January, those packages are
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; behind a paywall.
&amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; Due to the paywall, installing your own HDP cluster with Ambari
&amp;gt; now
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; effectively dead. I am not sure if legacy versions of Kafka, HBase,
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; Storm,
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; etc will continue to be freely available, but even if so, we cannot
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; continue to rely on this mechanism if new versions and security
&amp;gt; updates
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; will not be made available.
&amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; The Apache Metron project does not publish compiled binaries or
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; packages
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; either. We do make the code freely available to allow users to build
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; and
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; publish their own Metron packages. But even with this capability,
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; unless
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; you have a means to install the underlying platform dependencies
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; Ambari, installing Metron with Ambari has little value.
&amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; Unfortunately, I don't see a feasible path forward for Metron's
&amp;gt; Ambari
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; MPack.
&amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; ### Dev Environment
&amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; This not only impacts the users of Apache Metron, this impacts
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; contributors
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; also. Our primary development environment relies on that Ambari
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; MPack. To
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; continue development on any of the components of Apache Metron,
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; would
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; need to build an alternative development environment that can
&amp;gt; function
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; despite the paywall. That could take many shapes, but in my opinion
&amp;gt; it
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; would be a blocker for continuing any development on Apache Metron,
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; unfortunately.
&amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; Please do let me know if anyone disagrees or can think of an
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; alternative
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; approach that would allow the current Ambari MPack to remain viable.

&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; I like the progress that Apache did with Ambari in
2.7. And I don't
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; know a
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; better installer/manager for all the services (we use
other Hadoop

&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; Sometimes its buggy, agents get stuck or server needs
reboot from
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; time to
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; time, mpacks brake some functionality. But overall
I feel this is
&amp;gt; the
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; direction for central management and orchestration.

&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; - Dropping Storm and moving to Spark drops
the very hard to
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; tune/manage/troubleshoot Storm.
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; - Dropping the UIs (and making SQL the
external interface)
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; pretty much
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; implies dropping the REST APIs and ES/Solr.
ES/Solr have been
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; a giant
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; source of dev heartache on the project
and they exist
&amp;gt; primarily
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; for
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; the
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; real time use case. People can build whatever
UIs or use
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; existing
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; tools
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; against Parquet/Hive/whatever.
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; - Dropping Ambari. It's a complex beast
to install because of
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; how many
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; components we have. Dropping the above
makes our install much
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; easier
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; and
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; should alleviate the need for a complex
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; At that point, we're basically left with
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; - Some Spark for parse -&amp;gt; enrich
-&amp;gt; output
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; - The profiler
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; - Stellar
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; - Probably some other misc stuff (sensors,
bro kafka plugging,
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; etc.)
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; At a glance, that seems almost an order
of magnitude smaller than
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; what we
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; currently try to handle.
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt;
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; I'm not really sure what an appropriate
way to handle the
&amp;gt; profiler
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; is.
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; I've
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; barely touched the code for it, so I anything
I say is a vague
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; guess.

&amp;gt; &amp;gt; required to
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; get
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; it running. If things were

&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; (and
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; it might encourage more people

&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; module instead of trying
to tackle all the other pieces that
&amp;gt; are
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; probably
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; not part of his bailiwick.

&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; Stellar is very intriguing,
maybe that is not unique to Metron?
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; The
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; architecture of Metron with
respect to parsing, enriching,
&amp;gt; etc.,
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; makes
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; a
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; lot of sense to anyone I
talk with. These two aspects of Metron
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; seem
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; like
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; standout examples that make

&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; Do we feel that this project
is viable? If so, how are we
&amp;gt; going
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; to
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; spur
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; new contributions? If not,
then should we begin the process to
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; fold
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; the
&amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; project?
