I have tried deploying metron in a single node VM using vagrant. It was very interesting when I was exploring it and I would like to know if it's possible to actually deploy the entire Metron with HDP onto a single node physical server using Ambari. If that is possible , does that means that my physical server needs to be installed with both Ambari Server and Ambari Agent ? Thank you.
Anything you can do in a VM, you can deploy on a physical machine.
If you want to manage the services via Ambari, you need both Ambari Agent and Server.
However, I would not really recommend running all those services on one machine. It's called "distributed" computing for a reason ;)
Hi I am able to install Metron in single node configuration according to the link you provided. However the performance of it running all the necessary services is still very slow in a single node configuration.
Thank you for getting back.
What are the server parameters?
Is it better to slice a powerfull server to multiple VMs?
Is metron CPU, RAM or IOps intensive?
