Starting Service Center

Starting Stand-alone Service Center

There are two ways to start a stand-alone service center service:

  1. Start from installation package

    1. Download the installation package of ServiceCenter
    2. Decompress the installation package into the installation directory.
    3. Start Local ServiceCenter from start-service-center.bat file
    1. Download and Decompress command:
      wget http://apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/incubator/servicecomb/incubator-servicecomb-service-center/1.0.0-m1/apache-servicecomb-incubating-service-center-1.0.0-m1-linux-amd64.tar.gz
      tar xvf apache-servicecomb-incubating-service-center-1.0.0-m1-linux-amd64.tar.gz
      
    2. Start local service center command:
      bash apache-servicecomb-incubating-service-center-1.0.0-m1-linux-amd64/start-service-center.sh
      

    NOTE:Frontend will bind ipv6 address under Linux, so browser may report error, fix method:Modify httpaddr in conf/app.conf with a reachable ip, then modify ip : 'http://127.0.0.1' in app/appList/apiList.js with same ip, final restart ServiceCenter.

    NOTE:The OS must be 64-bit.

  2. Start from Docker

docker pull servicecomb/service-center
docker run -d -p 30100:30100 servicecomb/service-center:latest

NOTE: Running Service Center will bind on: http://127.0.0.1:30100
If using Docker Toolbox,command docker-machine ip can be used to get binded IP address.

Starting Clustered Service Center

As Service-center is a stateless application so it can be seamlessly deployed in cluster mode to achieve HA.

SC is dependent on the etcd to store the micro-services information so you can opt for running etcd standalone or in cluster mode.

Notice: We strongly recommend running etcd in cluster mode in order to get the perfect HA ability. In this document we can know it is highly recommended to always have a cluster size greater than two in production in order to prevent Majority Failure.

Once you are done with installing the etcd either in cluster or standalone mode then you can follow the below steps to run the Service-Center.

Let’s assume you want to install 2 instances of Service-Center on VM with following details

Name Address
VM1 10.12.0.1
VM2 10.12.0.2

Here we assume your etcd is running on http://10.12.0.4:2379 (you can follow this guide to install etcd in cluster mode.)

Step 1

Download the SC release from here on all the VM’s.

tar -xvf service-center-X.X.X-linux-amd64.tar.gz

Note: Please don’t run start-service-center.sh as it will also start the built-in etcd.

Step 2

Edit the configuration of the ip/port on which SC will run and etcd ip

VM1
vi conf/app.conf

Replace the below values :

httpaddr = 10.12.0.1
manager_cluster = "10.12.0.4:2379"

Then start the Service-center :

./service-center
VM2
vi conf/app.conf

Replace the below values :

httpaddr = 10.12.0.2
manager_cluster = "10.12.0.4:2379"

Then start the Service-center :

./service-center

Note: In manger_cluster you can put the multiple instances of etcd in the cluster like :

manager_cluster= "10.12.0.4:2379,10.12.0.X:2379,10.12.0.X:2379"
Step 3

Verify your instances via :

curl http://10.12.0.1:30101/v4/default/registry/health

Will return :

{
    "instances": [
        {
            "instanceId": "d6e9e976f9df11e7a72b286ed488ff9f",
            "serviceId": "d6e99f4cf9df11e7a72b286ed488ff9f",
            "endpoints": [
                "rest://10.12.0.1:30100"
            ],
            "hostName": "service_center_10_12_0_1",
            "status": "UP",
            "healthCheck": {
                "mode": "push",
                "interval": 30,
                "times": 3
            },
            "timestamp": "1516012543",
            "modTimestamp": "1516012543"
        },
        {
            "instanceId": "16d4cb35f9e011e7a58a286ed488ff9f",
            "serviceId": "d6e99f4cf9df11e7a72b286ed488ff9f",
            "endpoints": [
                "rest://10.12.0.2:30100"
            ],
            "hostName": "service_center_10_12_0_2",
            "status": "UP",
            "healthCheck": {
                "mode": "push",
                "interval": 30,
                "times": 3
            },
            "timestamp": "1516012650",
            "modTimestamp": "1516012650"
        }
    ]
}

As we can see here the Service-Center can auto-discover all the instances of the Service-Center running in cluster, this auto-discovery feature is used by the Java-Chassis SDK to auto-discover all the instances of the Service-Center by knowing at least one IP of Service-Center running in cluster.

In your microservice.yaml you can provide the SC IP of both the instance or any one instance, sdk can auto-discover other instances and use the other instances to get microservice details in case of failure of the first one.

servicecomb:
  service:
    registry:
      address: "http://10.12.0.1:30100,http://10.12.0.2:30100"
      autodiscovery: true

In this case sdk will be able to discover all the instances of SC in cluster.
