Quick Start Guide for Volcano

Quick Start Guide

The easiest way to deploy Volcano is to use the Helm chart.


First of all, clone the repo to your local path:

# mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/volcano.sh/
# cd $GOPATH/src/volcano.sh/
# git clone https://github.com/volcano-sh/volcano.git

1. Volcano Image

Official images are available on DockerHub, however you can build them locally with the command:

cd $GOPATH/src/volcano.sh/volcano
make images
## Verify your images
# docker images
REPOSITORY                 TAG                 IMAGE ID            CREATED             SIZE
volcanosh/vk-admission     latest              a83338506638        8 seconds ago       41.4MB
volcanosh/vk-scheduler     latest              faa3c2a25ac3        9 seconds ago       49.6MB
volcanosh/vk-controllers   latest              7b11606ebfb8        10 seconds ago      44.2MB

NOTE: You need ensure the images are correctly loaded in your kubernetes cluster, for example, if you are using kind cluster, try command kind load docker-image <image-name>:<tag> for each of the images.

2. Helm charts

Finally, install helm chart.

helm install installer/chart --namespace <namespace> --name <specified-name>
For eg :
helm install installer/chart --namespace volcano-trial --name volcano-trial

To Verify your installation run the following commands:

#1. Verify the Running Pods

# kubectl get pods --namespace <namespace>
NAME                                                READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
<specified-name>-admission-84fd9b9dd8-9trxn          1/1     Running   0          43s
<specified-name>-controllers-75dcc8ff89-42v6r        1/1     Running   0          43s
<specified-name>-scheduler-b94cdb867-89pm2           1/1     Running   0          43s
<specified-name>--admission-init-qbtmb               0/1     Completed 0          43s

#2. Verify the Services
# kubectl get services --namespace <namespace>
NAME                                     TYPE        CLUSTER-IP     EXTERNAL-IP   PORT(S)   AGE
<specified-name>-admission-service       ClusterIP   <none>        443/TCP   91s
