ArangoLocalStorage Custom Resource

The ArangoDB Storage Operator creates and maintains ArangoDB storage resources in a Kubernetes cluster, given a storage specification. This storage specification is a CustomResource following a CustomResourceDefinition created by the operator.

Example minimal storage definition:

apiVersion: "storage.arangodb.com/v1alpha"
kind: "ArangoLocalStorage"
metadata:
  name: "example-arangodb-storage"
spec:
  storageClass:
    name: my-local-ssd
  localPath:
  - /mnt/big-ssd-disk

This definition results in:

  • a StorageClass called my-local-ssd
  • the dynamic provisioning of PersistentVolume's with a local volume on a node where the local volume starts in a sub-directory of /mnt/big-ssd-disk.
  • the dynamic cleanup of PersistentVolume's (created by the operator) after one is released.

The provisioned volumes will have a capacity that matches the requested capacity of volume claims.

Specification reference

Below you'll find all settings of the ArangoLocalStorage custom resource.

spec.storageClass.name: string

This setting specifies the name of the storage class that created PersistentVolume will use.

If empty, this field defaults to the name of the ArangoLocalStorage object.

If a StorageClass with given name does not yet exist, it will be created.

spec.storageClass.isDefault: bool

This setting specifies if the created StorageClass will be marked as default storage class. (default is false)

spec.localPath: stringList

This setting specifies one of more local directories (on the nodes) used to create persistent volumes in.

spec.nodeSelector: nodeSelector

This setting specifies which nodes the operator will provision persistent volumes on.
