Webrunner Configuration

The process of installing (supplying) a software and providing it as a service (instantiation) are the same for all software. However during instantiation each instance can be configured differently.

This section will cover the specific configuration parameters used for a Webrunner used for example during tutorials on extending software releases.

Webrunner Configuration Parameters

After selecting Services, Adding a new service, selecting Webrunner and the latest release, you should reach the Webrunner configuration menu.

There are two software types available. Default will install a single Webrunner on a available node partition, whereas Resilient will create three instances on machines in physcially different locations. Give your Webrunner a recognizable name, select Resilient, then click Proceed to continue and request instantiation.

You can follow the compilation by looking at the slapos-node-software.log using:

# tail opt/slapos/log/slapos-node-software.log -f
