Additional Software Requirements
To install additional packages required only by OpenStack deployment scripts you need to execute the following command:
$ pip install -r requirements-openstack.txt ".[openstack]"
If in the previous step you installed Klever package with the -e argument, then you should use it here as well (i.e. execute pip install -e “.[openstack]”).
OpenStack Deployment supports 2 kinds of entities:
Klever Base Image - with default settings this is a Debian 9 OpenStack image with installed Klever dependencies. Using Klever Base Image allows to substantially reduce a time for deploying other Klever Instance.
Klever Instance - an OpenStack instance, either for development or production purposes. For development mode many debug options are activated by default.
Almost all deployment commands require you to specify path to the private SSH key and your OpenStack username:
$ klever-deploy-openstack --os-username $OS_USERNAME --ssh-rsa-private-key-file $SSH_RSA_PRIVATE_KEY_FILE create instance
For brevity they are omitted from the following examples.
Also, in addition to command-line arguments mentioned above and below, there are several optional command-line arguments which you can find out by running:
$ klever-deploy-openstack --help
Klever Base Image
$ klever-deploy-openstack create image
Unless specified, name Klever Base vN (where N is 1 plus a maximum of 0 and vi) is used for new
Klever Base Image.
Besides, deployment scripts overwrites file
klever/deploys/conf/openstack-base-image.txt with this name so that
new instances will be based on the new Klever Base Image.
To force other users to switch to the new Klever Base Image you need to commit changes of this file to the
For Klever Instance you can execute actions show, create, update, ssh, remove, share and hide. Basically you should perform actions with Klever Instance in the following order: exactly as for Local Deployment, e.g.:
$ klever-deploy-openstack create instance
By default Klever is deployed in production mode, but you can change this with the –mode command-line argument:
$ klever-deploy-openstack --mode development create instance
In addition, between creating and removing you can also share/hide for/from the outside world Klever Instance and open an SSH connection to it. By default name for Klever Instance is a concatenation of $OS_USERNAME, “klever”, and the mode used (development or production), e.g. petrov-klever-development.
Multiple Klever Instances
You can also create a specified number of OpenStack instances for performing various experiments by using the –instances command-line argument. In this mode you can only execute actions show, create, update and remove. The normal workflow for Multiple Klever Instances is the same as for Klever Instance, e.g.:
$ klever-deploy-openstack --instances $INSTANCES create instance
