This page represents a work in progress documentation for Apache Metron.

Quick Start

If you want to spin up Metron in the quickest way possible, follow the instructions here: Quick Dev Platform


You can spin up the Metron in two ways:

  • Ansible based Vagrant Single Node VM Install
    • This the best place to play with Metron First.
  • Fully Automated 10 Node Ansible Based Install on AWSusing Ambari Blueprints and AWS APIs
    • If you want a more realistic setup of the Metron app, use this approach. Keep in mind that this install will spin up 10 m4.xlarge EC2 instance by default

Dev VM Install - Ansible Based Vagrant Single Node VM Install

This install fully automates the provisioning of Apache Metron on single, virtualized host running on Virtualbox. Metron is composed of many components and installing all of these on a single host, especially a virtualized one, will greatly stress your computer. To work sufficiently this will require at least 8 GB of RAM and a fair amount of patience.

See the followiig for instructions: Full Dev Platform 

Cloud Install - Fully Automated 10 Node Cluster on AWS

This install fully automates the provisioning of Apache Metron on Amazon EC2 infrastructure. Starting with only your Amazon EC2 credentials, this project will create a fully-functioning, end-to-end, multi-node cluster running Apache Metron.

Warning: Amazon will charge for the use of their resources when running Apache Metron. The amount will vary based on the number and size of hosts, along with current Amazon pricing structure. Be sure to stop or terminate all of the hosts instantiated by Apache Metron when not in use to avoid unnecessary charges.

See the following for instructions: Apache Metron on Amazon EC2
