It is a sampler environment matching the HOWTO at How To Set Up a Minio Cluster From Potluck, Complete With Nextcloud, Monitoring And Alerting.
Do not run in production!
This is a testing environment to show
minio running on FreeBSD, with
nomad, and the Beast-of-Argh one-pot monitoring solution providing
alertmanager, plus a
nextcloud nomad image, configured to use
minio S3 as file storage, and a
mariadb pot image for the
As of 2022-11-24 everything works EXCEPT automatic nextcloud install. You can evaluate minio and the monitoring systems in the meantime.
This will bring up 2 minio servers:
- minio1 (8GB, 4 attached disks)
- minio2 (4GB, 4 attached disks)
The host computer running
minio-sampler needs at least 16 CPU threads, 16GB memory, plus 50GB disk space, preferably high speed SSD. The setup takes an hour or so with packbox step included.
To create your own sampler, init the VMs:
git clone https://codeberg.org/Honeyguide/minio-sampler cd minio-sampler (edit) config.ini and set ACCESSIP to a free IP on LAN, and set DISKSIZE export PATH=$(pwd)/bin:$PATH (optional: sudo chmod 777 /tmp) minsampler init mysample cd mysample minsampler packbox minsampler startvms vagrant ssh minio1 OR open http://ACCESSIP ... ./preparenextcloud.sh # not working ... minsampler status ...
Installation and Operation
Please see Detailed Install FreeBSD & Linux
Usage: minsampler command [options] Commands: destroyvms -- Destroy VMs help -- Show usage init -- Initialize new minio-sampler packbox -- Create vm box image startvms -- Start (and provision) VMs status -- Show status stopvms -- Stop VMs
A virtual interface is created with a free IP address from the LAN. You must provide this free IP address in
config.ini in the
Everything is accessible via frontend at
Virtual disks are saved in the
minio-sampler directory for the duration of running the program.
Set the size of the virtual disks in
config.ini in the
Input disk size in thousands of MB, where 10000 (MB) is the same as 10GB.
To set a 2GB disk, use 2000. This is the default.
Do not add the metric M, or MB or GB! It won't work.
Eight (8) virtual drives will be created of this size, so ensure you have sufficient disk space!
A basic check is done to see if the input figures can be catered to, on running
minsampler init <name>.
The default dashboard with links to all the included tools is
