MULTIPASS + MICROK8 + Grafana On MACOSX

Multipass is a system that orchestrates the creation, management and maintenance of Virtual Machines and associated Ubuntu images to simplify development. MicroK8s is a local deployment of Kubernetes. Let’s skip all the technical details and just accept that Kubernetes does not run natively on MacOS or Windows. You may be thinking “I have seen Kubernetes running on a MacOS laptop, what kind of sorcery was that?” It’s simple, Kubernetes is running inside a VM. You might not see the VM or it might not even be a full blown virtual system but some level of virtualisation is there. This is exactly what we will show here.

Under this tutorial, we will setup a VM using Multipass and will showcase how to install MicroK8s. After the installation we will discuss how to build appalication stack using K8s. Let’s get started:

Download Multipass VM https://github.com/CanonicalLtd/multipass/releases

A multipass VM on MacOS

Biradars-MacBook-Air:~ sangam$ multipass launch --name microk8s-vm --mem 4G --disk 40G
Launched: microk8s-vm                                                           
Biradars-MacBook-Air:~ sangam$ multipass exec microk8s-vm -- sudo snap install microk8s --classic
multipass exec microk8s-vm -- sudo iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
2019-02-19T18:13:52+05:30 INFO Waiting for restart...
microk8s v1.13.2 from Canonical✓ installed

Make sure you reserve enough resources to host your deployments; above, we got 4GB of RAM and 40GB of hard disk. We also make sure packets to/from the pod network interface can be forwarded to/from the default interface.

Our VM has an IP that you can check with:

Biradars-MacBook-Air:~ sangam$ multipass list
Name State IPv4 Release
microk8s-vm RUNNING 192.168.64.3 Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Take a note of this IP since our services will become available there. Other multipass commands you may find handy:

Get a shell inside the VM:

Biradars-MacBook-Air:~ sangam$ multipass shell microk8s-vm

Deployment

Deploying a nginx service is what you would expect, with the addition of the Microk8s prefix

multipass@microk8s-vm:~$ microk8s.kubectl run nginx --image nginx --replicas 3
kubectl run --generator=deployment/apps.v1 is DEPRECATED and will be removed in a future version. Use kubectl run --generator=run-pod/v1 or kubectl create instead.
deployment.apps/nginx created
 --selector=run=nginx --name nginxkubectl expose deployment nginx --port 80 --target-port 80 --type ClusterIP\ 
The Service "nginx" is invalid: spec.type: Unsupported value: "ClusterIP --selector=run=nginx": supported values: "ClusterIP", "ExternalName", "LoadBalancer", "NodePort"
