Install Wallaroo with Minimum Services

How to install Wallaroo with disabled services for lower core environments

Wallaroo requires at least 8 cores with 16 GB of RAM per node, and runs best in an environment with a total of 16 cores. Wallaroo recommends at least 16 cores total to enable all services. At less than 16 cores, services will have to be disabled to allow basic functionality as detailed in this table.

Note that even when disabling these services, Wallaroo performance may be impacted by the models, pipelines, and data used. The greater the size of the models and steps in a pipeline, the more resources will be required for Wallaroo to operate efficiently.

To install Wallaroo with minimum services, a configuration file will be used as parts of the kots based installation. For full details on the Wallaroo installation process, see the Wallaroo Install Guides.

This guide is broken up into two segments:

Wallaroo Installation with less than 16 Cores

To install Wallaroo with less than 16 cores and 8 cores or greater, the following services must be disabled:

  • Model Conversion
  • Model Insights
  • Plateau

The following configuration settings can be used at the installation procedure to disable these services.

apiVersion: kots.io/v1beta1
kind: ConfigValues
metadata:
  name: wallaroo
spec:
  values:
    dashboard_enabled:
      value: "1"
    enable_model_insights:
      value: "0"
    model_conversion_enabled:
      value: "1"
    plateau_enabled:
      value: "0"

The configuration file can be applied via the --config-values={CONFIG YAML FILE} option. For example:

kubectl kots install "wallaroo/ce" \
-n wallaroo \ 
--config-values=wallaroo-install-8-cores.yaml

Wallaroo Installation with less than 8 Cores

For installation of Wallaroo with less than 8 cores, all services except for Inference must be disabled.

The following configuration settings can be used at the installation procedure to disable these services.

apiVersion: kots.io/v1beta1
kind: ConfigValues
metadata:
  name: wallaroo
spec:
  values:
    alert_manager_enabled:
      value: "0"
    arbitrary_execution_enabled:
      value: "0"
    dashboard_enabled:
      value: "0"
    enable_grafana:
      value: "0"
    enable_model_insights:
      value: "0"
    explainability_enabled:
      value: "0"
    model_conversion_enabled:
      value: "0"
    plateau_enabled:
      value: "0"
    jupyter_mode:
      value: none   

The configuration file can be applied via the --config-values={CONFIG YAML FILE} option. For example:

kubectl kots install "wallaroo/ce" \
-n wallaroo \ 
--config-values=wallaroo-install-less-8-cores.yaml
