Docker Deployment Profile Configuration

Article summary

The specific profile names are: 5K, 15K, 30K and 60K and reference the quantity of Skylight elements that a Skylight orchestrator instance can manage. The selection of the profile is an important part of the installation process and is done by the installer. It determines the number of communication processes that will be started by the application (called mediation instances) to deal with the connectivity to the network.

Skylight orchestrator Docker defaults to the 5K profile after deployment. If larger networks need to be managed, 15K, 30K, or 60K configurations must be used.

The Docker host dedicated for the Skylight orchestrator is expected. The table below provides details on the CPU, memory, disk IOPS requirements for Docker host of the profiles.

Maximum number of users is 20

*For 15K, 30K and 60K profiles, disk I/O must be split over distinct mount points. Average latency must remain under 5ms.

Notes:

You must ensure that the Docker host matches these requirements.

For 15K, 30K and 60K profiles, disk I/O must be split over distinct mount points. Average latency must remain under 5ms.


The Skylight orchestrator application is I/O intensive and as a result, special consideration must be taken to ensure sufficient disk capacity, spindles and speed are allotted. The sections that follow provide procedures to assign the deployment profile and guidelines for the proper setup of your disk configuration.
