SlapOS Learning Track

SlapOS Learning Track

SlapOS Learning Track

This learning track contains a sequence of tutorials that will teach the setup and use of a SlapOS based system. After finishing this learning track, you should have a ready-to-use network managed by SlapOS and be familiar with providing both existing and custom software to users, monitoring network health as well as software service consumption.

The course is split into lectures each introducing a certain component of SlapOS, showing how it is setup and how it fits into the architecture of SlapOS.

Each lecture also provides additional materials such as HowTos explaining certain aspects in more detail or outlining how certain prerequisities of a component can be met.

Lecture 1: Introduction to SlapOS

This lecture introduces SlapOS and the underlying concepts. There are several documents required to be read in order to understand how SlapOS works.

The following documents should be read as a primer on SlapOS:

Lecture 2: Installing SlapOS System

This lecture and tutorials will cover setting up and configuring a minimal SlapOS network consisting of a SlapOS Master (COMP-ROOT) and the first network node (COMP-0).

The following tutorials cover setup of the SlapOS network:

Most of the steps required for COMP-0 are applicable to generic network nodes COMP-1,2,3..., too. There are some divergences in the sequence of steps, which will be pointed out in the tutorials (for an overview see first slides of installing a SlapOS node).

A complete walkthrough of setting up a SlapOS node in a single document can be found in installing and configuring an LTE Box.

The following additonal documents are pointed to whenever required in the tutorials:

Lecture 3: Supplying a Software on a SlapOS Network

This lecture will cover working with software release on SlapOS. It will show how to create a new software release and add it to the catalog on SlapOS Master so that it can be installed and instantiated on network nodes.

The following tutorials deal with creation and extension of software releases:

The following additonal documents are pointed to whenever required in the tutorials:

Lecture 4: Managing a SlapOS Network

This lecture will cover monitoring a SlapOS network. It will demonstrate the use of the SlapOS Monitor - an autononmous application created to monitor SlapOS deployments. It tutorials will show how to feed the Monitor with the configuration of the network and how to use monitor the status of computers, partitions and the overall network health. The second tutorial will focus on managing network issue, handling tickets created on alarms et al.

The following tutorials deal with creation and extension of software releases:

The following additonal documents are pointed to whenever required in the tutorials:
