Overview

It's a puppet module for installing and configuring Twemproxy - memcached proxy created in Twitter. Tested for:

  • Ubuntu trusty

Should work for most linux distros.

Module Description

This module install, configure and run twemproxy. You can do any of these tasks separately or combine them for installing twemproxy from scratch.

Setup

Beginning with twemproxy

I believe that it should be enough to call

class { 'twemproxy':
  clients_array => $memcache_array,
}

with array of <memcache node address>:<port>:<weight> values to start using twemproxy and force it to do something useful

Usage

Most of the work can be done through main twemproxy class, so you can just call ::twemproxy with options you need to use all functionality this module covers

###I need just setup twemproxy and create a pool with servers, what should I do?

class { 'twemproxy:
  clients_array => ['10.10.10.10:11211:1', '10.10.10.20:11211:1'],
}

###I need just manage already existing config

twemproxy::pool { 'mypool':
  listen_address       => '127.0.0.1',
  listen_port          => '22122',
  timeout              => '400',
  redis                => false,
  redis_auth           => false,
  server_connections   => 1,
  server_retry_timeout => 3000,
  clients_array        => ['10.10.10.10:11211:1', '10.10.10.20:11211:1'],
}

Reference

####package_name Tells package name we should manage.

####package_ensure Set what we should do with package. Valid options: 'present' or 'absent'. Default value: 'present'.

####service_manage Tells if we should manage twemproxy service. Valid options: 'true' or 'false'. Default option: 'true'

####service_name Set service name for twemproxy.

####listen_address Address twemproxy will listen on. Default value: '127.0.0.1'

####listen_port Port twemproxy will listen on. Default value: 22122

####timeout The timeout value in msec that twemproxy will wait for to establish a connection o the server or receive a response from a server. Set it to false if you want to wait indefinitely. Default value: 400

####backlog The TCP backlog argument. Default value: 1024

####preconnect A boolean value that controls if twemproxy should preconnect to all the servers in this pool on process start. Default value: 'false'

####redis A boolean value that controls if a server pool speaks redis or memcached protocol. Default value: 'false'

####redis_auth Authenticate to the Redis server on connect. Default value: 'false'

####redis_db The DB number to use on the pool servers. Defaults to false

####server_connections The maximum number of connections that can be opened to each server. Default value: 1

####auto_eject_hosts A boolean value that controls if server should be ejected temporarily when it fails consecutively server_failure_limit times. Default value: 'false'

####server_retry_timeout The timeout value in msec to wait for before retrying on a temporarily ejected server, when auto_eject_host is set to true. Default value: 30000

####server_failure_limit The number of consecutive failures on a server that would lead to it being temporarily ejected when auto_eject_host is set to true. Default value: 2

####client_address Address of client for twemproxy.

####client_port Port which client will bind to. Default value: 11211

####client_weight Weight of client. Default value: 1

####clients_array Array with client conections. You can consider it like array with different clients pointed as 'client_address:client_port:client_weight'. Example of use:

[
  '10.10.10.10:11211:1',

Limitations

This module was tested only on Ububtu trusty, but should probably work on other platforms too.

Development

This module is completely free, so I would appreciate any pull-requests to it or its redistribution.
