CDK for deploying single-node and multi-node OpenSearch cluster with OpenSearch Dashboards

This project enables user to deploy either a single-node or a multi-node OpenSearch cluster. There are two stacks that get deployed:

  1. OpenSearch-Network-Stack: Use this stack to either use an existing Vpc or create a new Vpc. This stack also creates a new security group to manage access.
  2. OpenSearch-Infra-Stack: Sets up EC2 Auto-scaling group (ASG) (installs opensearch and opensearch-dashboards using userdata), cloudwatch logging, load balancer. Check your cluster log in the log group created from your stack in the cloudwatch.

Getting Started

  • Requires NPM to be installed
  • Install project dependencies using npm install from this project directory
  • Configure aws credentials

Deployment

  • Before starting this step, ensure that your AWS CLI is correctly configured with access credentials.

  • Also ensure that you're running these commands in the current directory

  • Next, install the required dependencies:

npm install
  • First, run CDK bootstrap.
  • You need to provide all the required context parameters in the command
cdk bootstrap aws://<aws-account-number>/<aws-region> --context securityDisabled=false \
--context minDistribution=false --context distributionUrl='https://artifacts.opensearch.org/releases/bundle/opensearch/2.3.0/opensearch-2.3.0-linux-x64.tar.gz' \
--context cpuArch='x64' --context singleNodeCluster=false --context dataNodeCount=3 \
--context dashboardsUrl='https://artifacts.opensearch.org/releases/bundle/opensearch-dashboards/2.3.0/opensearch-dashboards-2.3.0-linux-x64.tar.gz' \
--context distVersion=2.3.0 --context serverAccessType=ipv4 --context restrictServerAccessTo=10.10.10.10/32
  • Now you are ready to synthesize the CloudFormation templates:
cdk synth "*" --context securityDisabled=false \
--context minDistribution=false --context distributionUrl='https://artifacts.opensearch.org/releases/bundle/opensearch/2.3.0/opensearch-2.3.0-linux-x64.tar.gz' \
--context cpuArch='x64' --context singleNodeCluster=false --context dataNodeCount=3 \
--context dashboardsUrl='https://artifacts.opensearch.org/releases/bundle/opensearch-dashboards/2.3.0/opensearch-dashboards-2.3.0-linux-x64.tar.gz' \
--context distVersion=2.3.0 --context serverAccessType=ipv4 --context restrictServerAccessTo=10.10.10.10/32

Sample command to set up multi-node cluster with security enabled on x64 AL2 machine

Please note that as of now we only support instances backed by Amazon Linux-2 amis.

cdk deploy "*" --context securityDisabled=false \
--context minDistribution=false --context distributionUrl='https://artifacts.opensearch.org/releases/bundle/opensearch/2.3.0/opensearch-2.3.0-linux-x64.tar.gz' \
--context cpuArch='x64' --context singleNodeCluster=false --context dataNodeCount=3 \
--context dashboardsUrl='https://artifacts.opensearch.org/releases/bundle/opensearch-dashboards/2.3.0/opensearch-dashboards-2.3.0-linux-x64.tar.gz' \
--context distVersion=2.3.0 --context serverAccessType=ipv4 --context restrictServerAccessTo=10.10.10.10/32

Interacting with OpenSearch cluster

After CDK Stack deployment the user will be returned a load-balancer url which they can use to interact with the cluster.

Sample commands

curl -X GET "http://<load-balancer-url>/_cluster/health?pretty" for OpenSearch

To interact with dashboards use port 8443. Type http://<load-balancer-url>:8443 in your browser.

For security enabled cluster run curl -X GET https://<load-balancer-url> -u 'admin:admin' --insecure The security enabled dashboard is accessible using http on port 8443

Restricting Server Access

Please note the load-balancer url is internet facing and can be accessed by anyone.

To restrict access please refer Client IP Preservation to restrict access on internet-facing network load balancer. You need to restrict access to your OpenSearch cluster endpoint (load balancer).

Below values are allowed:

serverAccessType restrictServerAccessTo
ipv4 all (0.0.0.0/0) or any ipv4 CIDR (eg: 10.10.10.10/32)
ipv6 all (::/0) or any ipv6 CIDR (eg: 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334)
prefixList Prefix List id (eg: ab-12345)
securityGroupId A security group ID (eg: sg-123456789)

Enable Remote Store Feature

Remote Store feature provides an option to store indexed data in a remote durable data store. To enable this feature the user needs to register a snapshot repository (S3 or File System) which is used to store the index data. Apart from passing enableRemoteStore flag as true the user needs to be provide additional settings to opensearch.yml, the settings are:

1. opensearch.experimental.feature.remote_store.enabled: 'true'
2. cluster.remote_store.enabled: 'true'
3. opensearch.experimental.feature.segment_replication_experimental.enabled: 'true'
4. cluster.indices.replication.strategy: SEGMENT

The above-mentioned settings need to be passed using additionalConfig parameter. Please note the experimental settings are only applicable till the feature is under development and will be removed when the feature becomes GA.

Check logs

The opensearch logs are available in cloudwatch logs log-group opensearchLogGroup/opensearch.log in the same region your stack is deployed. Each EC2 instance will create its own log-stream and the log-stream will be named after each instance-id.

Access EC2 Instances

All the ec2 instances are hosted in private subnet and can only be accessed using AWS Systems Manager Session Manager

Port Mapping

The ports to access the cluster are dependent on the security parameter value

  • If security is disable (HTTP),
    • OpenSearch 9200 is mapped to port 80 on the LB
  • If security is enable (HTTPS),
    • OpenSearch 9200 is mapped to port 443 on the LB
  • OpenSearch-Dasboards 5601 is always mapped to port 8443 on the LB (HTTP) Change the port mapping using context variables mapOpensearchPortTo and mapOpensearchDashboardsPortTo . See available context parameters) for more details

Teardown

To delete a particular stack use the command:

cdk destroy <stackName> <pass all the context parameters>

To delete all the created stacks together use the command:

cdk destroy --all <pass all the context parameters>
