Re: Hosting MySQL images in OpenShift Origin


Thanks for the answers Ben, Aaron!

Right so at this point the applications themselves are not hosted inside OpenShift. There is a plan for that but we are not  there yet.

@Aaron your assumption was right in a sense that I intend to have MySQL available as a service to applications running on our corporate build infra.
They would connect and run their database creation scripts and test.

So while I have confidence I could access the service from other apps hosted inside the OpenShift infra, I actually need to somehow access them extenally.

To re-iterate the question, I am puzzled how should I route connections to the TCP port of the MySQL service (or pod?) from the network.
I assume it has something to do with routing / port forwarding.

@Ben thanks I'll checkout what those templates offer.

I would not necessarily expect you to deploy a single mysql instance and have each app create its own DB in that instance.  I'd expect each app to just deploy its own mysql instance for testing.  I think you will find that easier to setup.

While one db per app is straightforward and there​

​by default, a service is accessible to all other projects, no policy needed.  the challenge you have is creating the additional DBs in the mysql instance.  Our image creates one DB for you, if you want to create more, its up to you to exec into the DB container and run mysql commands to create more databases.

I am trying to host MySQL containers inside OpenShift. The goal would be that projects could connect to a given container, setup a database for themselves remotely and execute their integration tests.

The first question could be: is this something OpenShift could be used for or not?

For my installation I created a project with a single MySQL app (mysql:latest).

On the server, I can connect to the database via TCP (--protocol=tcp):
* via the IP of the pod
* via the IP of the service (that was auto created for me)

Of course the goal would be to access the database from our corporate network.

After digesting many threads on Stackoverflow, especially [1] and [2] I think the conclusion is that only
port 80/443/8000/8443 could be accessed externally.

I know of services, routes and port-forwarding, but probably I did not yet understand when they should be used.

I can use port-forwarding to map 3306 to a local port, then I access the database via "-h localhost".
I0302 09:20:01.133388    9195 portforward.go:213] Forwarding from -> 3306
I0302 09:20:01.133516    9195 portforward.go:213] Forwarding from [::1]:49220 -> 3306
But I assume I cannot use this to expose the port because of what I have found in [1] and [2].

Routes I learned could be used to match a path, but I think that is better used for HTTP services.

Frankly I did not yet understand the role of a Router in this context.

Could someone please let me know if it is possible to do what I want or not? RTFM is perfect for me, provided I can see a specific example for exposing a TCP port somehow. It is possible the solution is there but I did not realize.

I am using Origin: 1.1.3.
