Deploy NebulaGraph clusters with Helm

Legacy version compatibility

The 1.x version NebulaGraph Operator is not compatible with NebulaGraph of version below v3.x.

Prerequisite

Create clusters

  1. Add the NebulaGraph Operator chart repository to Helm (If you have already added the chart, skip the 1-2 steps and start from step 3).

    helm repo add nebula-operator https://vesoft-inc.github.io/nebula-operator/charts
    
  2. Update information of available charts locally from chart repositories.

    helm repo update
    
  3. Set environment variables to your desired values.

    export NEBULA_CLUSTER_NAME=nebula         # The desired NebulaGraph cluster name.
    export NEBULA_CLUSTER_NAMESPACE=nebula    # The desired namespace where your NebulaGraph cluster locates.
    export STORAGE_CLASS_NAME=fast-disks             # The desired StorageClass name in your NebulaGraph cluster.
    
  4. Create a namespace for your NebulaGraph cluster (If you have created one, skip this step).

    kubectl create namespace "${NEBULA_CLUSTER_NAMESPACE}"
    
  5. Apply the variables to the Helm chart to create a NebulaGraph cluster.

    helm install "${NEBULA_CLUSTER_NAME}" nebula-operator/nebula-cluster \
        --namespace="${NEBULA_CLUSTER_NAMESPACE}" \
        --set nameOverride=${NEBULA_CLUSTER_NAME} \
        --set nebula.storageClassName="${STORAGE_CLASS_NAME}"
    
  6. Check the status of the NebulaGraph cluster you created.

    kubectl -n "${NEBULA_CLUSTER_NAMESPACE}" get pod -l "app.kubernetes.io/cluster=${NEBULA_CLUSTER_NAME}"
    

    Output:

    NAME                READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
    nebula-graphd-0     1/1     Running   0          5m34s

    nebula-metad-1      1/1     Running   0          5m34s
    nebula-metad-2      1/1     Running   0          5m34s
    nebula-storaged-0   1/1     Running   0          5m34s
    nebula-storaged-1   1/1     Running   0          5m34s
    nebula-storaged-2   1/1     Running   0          5m34s
    

Scaling clusters

  • The cluster scaling feature is for NebulaGraph Enterprise Edition only.

Delete clusters

Run the following command to delete a NebulaGraph cluster with Helm:

helm uninstall "${NEBULA_CLUSTER_NAME}" --namespace="${NEBULA_CLUSTER_NAMESPACE}"

Or use variable values to delete a NebulaGraph cluster with Helm:

helm uninstall nebula --namespace=nebula
