Now you have a Kubernetes cluster ready to use, you can install the THORNode services.
Running Kubernetes cluster
Kubectl configured, ready and connected to running cluster
node-launcher repo. All commands in this section are to be run inside of this repo.
git clone https://gitlab.com/thorchain/devops/node-launchercd node-launcher
Install Helm 3 if not already available on your current machine:
To deploy all tools, metrics, logs management, Kubernetes Dashboard, run the command below.
To destroy all those resources run the command below.
If you are successful, you will see the following message:
If there are any errors, they are typically fixed by running the command again.
It is important to deploy the tools first before deploying the THORNode services as some services will have metrics configuration that would fail and stop the THORNode deployment.
You have multiple commands available to deploy different configurations of THORNode. You can deploy mainnet or testnet. The commands deploy the umbrella chart
thornode in the background in the Kubernetes namespace
thornode by default. Unless you specify the name of your deployment using the environment variable
NAME, all the commands are run against the default Kubernetes namespace
thornode set up in the Makefile.
Rune the following to join Chaosnet:
You will be prompted for a password to encrypt your node private key. Do not forget this key.
If successful, you will see the following:
You are now ready to join the network:
Use the following useful commands to view and debug accordingly. You should see everything running and active. Logs can be retrieved to find errors:
kubectl get pods -n thornodekubectl get pods --all-namespaceskubectl logs -f <pod> -n thornode
Kubernetes should automatically restart any service, but you can force a restart by running:
kubectl delete pod <pod> -n thornode
thornode: Umbrella chart packaging all services needed to run a fullnode or validator THORNode.
This should be the only chart used to run THORNode stack unless you know what you are doing and want to run each chart separately (not recommended).
