Metron Single Node AWS Deployment?

Metron Single Node AWS Deployment?

Contributor

Hi, is it possible to deploy Metron on a single node (or maybe 3 node cluster at most) on AWS? We managed to follow the instructions to set up the 10 node AWS cluster but for exploration purposes we don't need such a large setup. Simply changing the number of hosts / roles in the playbook.yml file doesn't seem to work either as it breaks the installation at various points.

Managed to get this working by modifying:

/metron-deployment/amazon-ec2/playbook.yml
- include: tasks/create-hosts.yml host_count=1 host_type=sensors,ambari_master,metron_kafka_topics,metron_hbase_tables,metron,ec2,pcap_server,ambari_slave,web,mysql,search,enrichment

/metron-deployment/amazon-ec2/defaults.yml
instance_type: m4.4xlarge
cluster_type: single_node_vm

/metron-deployment/roles/ambari_config/var/single_node_vm.yml
groups: hosts: "{{groups.ambari_master}}"

Thanks for the link Mukesh. I have already followed that link and set up the 10 node AWS cluster. I was wondering if we could reduce the number of nodes in the cluster which isn't covered in the instruction guide.
