Creating the Smallest Cluster

Updated at: Mar 25, 2021 GMT+08:00

MRS 2.1.0 and earlier versions allow you to create the smallest cluster with only one Master node and one Core node. This helps you reduce costs in lightweight use scenarios, for example, development and commissioning of enterprise big data services.

Perform the following steps to create the smallest cluster.

  1. Log in to the MRS management console.
  2. Click Buy Cluster, and the page for buying a cluster is displayed.
  3. On the page for buying a cluster, select Custom Config.
  4. Configure cluster software information.

    • Cluster Name: You can use the default name. However, you are advised to include your employee ID or name abbreviation or date for consolidated memory and easy distinguishing.
    • Cluster Version: Select the latest version, which is the default value.
    • Cluster Type: Use the default value Analysis cluster.
    • Select Spark, HBase, Hive, and other components for an analysis cluster. Select Kafka, Storm, and other components for a streaming cluster. For a hybrid cluster, you can select the components of the analysis cluster and streaming cluster.
    • Kerberos Authentication: Click to disable Kerberos authentication.
    • Username: name of the MRS Manager administrator. admin is used by default.
    • Password: password of the MRS Manager administrator.
    • Confirm Password: Enter the MRS Manager administrator password again.

    • Enterprise Project: Use the default value.
    • CPU Architecture: Use the default value.
    • Cluster HA: Disable the cluster HA function.
    • Instance Specifications: Select General computing S3 > 8 vCPUs 16 GB (s3.2xlarge.2) for both Master and Core nodes.
    • System Disk: Select Common I/O and retain the default settings.
    • Data Disk: Select Common I/O and retain the default settings.
    • Instance Count: The number of Master nodes is 2 by default. Set the number of Core nodes to 3.
    • Login Mode: Select a mode for logging in to an ECS.
      • Password: Set a password for logging in to an ECS.
      • Key Pair: Select a key pair form the drop-down list. Select "I acknowledge that I have obtained private key file SSHkey-xxx and that without this file I will not be able to log in to my ECS." If you have never created a key pair, click View Key Pair to create or import a key pair. And then, obtain a private key file.
