Cisco Videoscape Distribution Suite Transparent Caching Software C-Series Cluster Installation Guide

OL-31421-02

Preface

Revised: August 2014, OL-31421-02

The Cisco Videoscape Distribution Suite Transparent Caching (VDS TC) solution is focused on reducing costs and improving the quality of user experience in delivering unmanaged Internet-based content, including Internet video, file sharing, software distribution, mobile application downloads, and web browsing. VDS TC integrates highly scalable caching software with high-performance Cisco Unified

Computing System™ (UCS) C-Series Rack Servers and B-Series Blade Servers, Cisco switches, and

SAN storage. The VDS TC solution, combined with other Videoscape products, such as Cisco

Videoscape Distribution Suite for Internet Streaming (VDS IS), provides a complete platform for optimizing managed and unmanaged content delivery.

Cluster Installation Overview

The Cisco VDS TC Cluster platform is a multi-server scalable system that is intended for the efficient serving of P2P and HTTP user requests. A Cisco VDS-TC Cluster installation can optimize P2P and

HTTP object downloading traffic across ISP networks through high-performance caching.

Because of its flexible size, a Cisco VDS TC Cluster installation can meet both low-end and high-end requirements, and can also grow in parallel with the customer network.

In a VDS TC Cluster configuration, the VDS TC software can run on the Cisco UCS C220 C- Series

Rack Servers or on the Cisco UCS B200 M3 B-Series Blade Servers. The cached objects for both solutions are stored on an IBM or NetApp SAN storage device, and Cisco switches are used for data, storage, and management connectivity. A VDS TC Cluster configuration that uses the Cisco UCS C220

Rack Servers can contain up to 16 Cisco UCS C220 cache engine servers and up to five IBM DS3524 or five NetApp E2724 SAN storage enclosures. A separate Cisco UCS C220 is used as the VDS TC

Management Server.

This installation guide provides instructions for installing VDS TC on a Cisco C-Series Cluster platform, including installing and configuring the VDS TC Management Server, the VDS TC Cache Engines, and the storage enclosures. This installation guide also discusses configuring the data and management switches used by the VDS TC C-Series Cluster installation.

Rack Server Cluster Models

There are four VDS TC Server cluster models that use the Cisco UCS C220 Rack Servers:

Configuring the Switches in a C-Series Cluster

Installation

The VDS TC C-Series Cluster installation has switches that provide two different functions:

Data switch: A Cisco Catalyst 4500-X Series switch is used for the VDS TC data switch, to which the cache engines are connected. In a redundant configuration there will be two of these switches.

Management switch: The VDS TC Management Server, the storage chassis, and the management ports of the cache engines connect to the management switch. The following management switches are used depending on the VDS TC configuration and storage enclosure that is used:

– For a VDS TC solution that uses the NetApp E2724 storage chassis:

• A Cisco Nexus 3172TQ Switch can be used as the VDS TC management switch for all VDS TC

C-Series Cluster installations. There will be one management switch for the non-redundant installations and there will be two management switches for the redundant installations.

• A Cisco SG500 Stackable Managed Switch can be used as the VDS TC management switch for the VDS-TC-2S non-redundant, VDS-TC-2S redundant, VDS-TC-4S non-redundant, and

VDS-TC-4S redundant configurations. There will be one management switch for the non-redundant installations and there will be two management switches for the redundant installations.

– For a VDS TC solution that uses the IBM DS3524 storage chassis:

• A Cisco Catalyst 4948E Ethernet switch is used for the VDS TC management switch in the

VDS-TC-4S, VDS-TC-8S, and VDS-TC-16S configurations. For the VDS-TC-4S and

VDS-TC-8S non-redundant installation, there will be one Cisco Catalyst 4948E management switch. For a non-redundant VDS-TC-16S installation and the VDS-TC-4S, VDS-TC-8S, and

VDS-TC-16S redundant installations, there will be two Cisco Catalyst 4948E management switches.

• The VDS-TC-2S configurations use the Cisco 4500-X switch for both the data switch and the management switch. For a VDS-TC-2S non-redundant configuration, there is only one Cisco

4500-X Series switch. For a VDS-TC-2S redundant configuration, there are two Cisco

VDS TC Management Switch

Confirm that your management switch is running the correct version of software. The software version that the switch should use depends on the type of management switch that your configuration uses, as follows:

• If you are using the Cisco Catalyst 4948E switch as the management switch, it should run Cisco IOS

Release 15.1(2)SG4 or later, with the LAN BASE W/O CRYPTO feature set, for example cat4500e-lanbase-mz.151-2.SG4.bin. You can use the show version command to verify the version and feature set information for the switch.

Note The IP BASE W/O CRYPTO feature set can also be used (cat4500e-ipbase-mz.151-2.SG4.bin).

If you are using the Cisco Nexus 3172TQ Switch as the management switch, it should run Cisco

NX-OS Release 6.0(2)U4(1) or later. You can use the show version command to verify the version and feature set information for the switch.

If you are using the Cisco SG500 Switch as the management switch, it should run a software version

1.3.5.50 or later. You can use the show version command to verify the software version for the switch.

Configure Cisco SG500 Stack

Note Complete the steps in this section only if you are using Cisco SG500 Switches as the management switches.

Follow these steps to configure the stack on the Cisco SG500:

Installing and Configuring the Cisco VDS TC

Cluster Software

This chapter includes information for installing the VDS TC Cluster platform software, including pre-installation and post-installation steps.

The VDS TC Cluster software installation script installs the VDS TC caching software and installs management tools, such as the VDS TC Management software, SNMP MIBs, and the CLI environment.

Upon completion, the installer performs some verification tests, such as verifying the directory structure accessibility and the reachability of IP addresses.

Note The steps in this chapter should only be run on the VDS TC Management Server. The procedures in this chapter will distribute the Cisco software packages to all of the servers.

This chapter contains the following sections:

Installing the Management Environment and Software

Post Installation Steps

Installing the Management Environment and Software

Use this procedure to install the management environment and software:

Procedure

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Using an SSH session that is connected to the VDS TC Management server, enter the command su root to login as the root user.

Enter the command cd /tftpboot to change folders.

Enter the ls command to see the name of the archive file. The file you are looking for will start with

VDS-TC_FI and will include Server_Cluster in the filename. Record the name of this file because you will need it in a later step. The numbers in the archive file represent the version of the VDS TC caching software. For example, the file named VDS-5.2.0b124_Server_Cluster.tar.gz would be for a VDS TC

Cluster installation and the version number of the software is 5.2.0b124.

Enter the command mkdir version, where version is the version number in the archive file you discovered in Step 3. For example, if the file you discovered in Step 3 was

VDS-TC_FI_5.2.0b124_Server_Cluster.tar.gz, enter the command mkdir 5.2.0b124.

Installing the Management Environment and Software

Step 5

Step 6

Step 7

Use the cd command to change to the directory you created in Step 4, for example cd 5.2.0b124.

You must extract the VDS-TC software from the packed archive, located in the /tftpboot folder. Enter the command tar -zxvf ../archive_name, where archive_name is the name of the file you discovered in

Step 3. For example, enter the command

tar -zxvf ../VDS-TC_FI_5.2.0b124_Server_Cluster.tar.gz.

Next you must edit the GA_installer.rc file to reflect the number of cache engine servers to be installed in the Cluster. Use the command vi GA_installer.rc to edit this file. The following is an example of what that file should look like for the first time install of four servers and the management server.

#MANAGEMENT_SOFTWARE {no, yes}

MANAGEMENT_SOFTWARE=yes

#UPGRADEL_CACHE_SOFTWARE {all, none, space separated list(ce-1 ce-2 ce-3 ce-4 ce-5 ce-6 ce-7 ce-8 ce-9 ce-10 ce-11 ce-12 ce-13 ce-14 ce-15 ce-16)}

UPGRADEL_CACHE_SOFTWARE=ce-1 ce-2 ce-3 ce-4

UPGRADE_TAR_BALL=<filename>.tar.gz

MANAGEMENT_ENVIRONMENT=yes

GRACE_UPGRADE=yes

FIRST_INSTALL=yes

Step 8

Step 9

Step 10

Step 11

To adjust the number of cache engine servers being installed, edit the line

UPGRADEL_CACHE_SOFTWARE=ce-1 ce-2 ce-3 ce-4, listing the cache engines that you are installing.

When you are finished editing the GA_installer.rc file, in the vi editor enter :x and press Enter to save and exit the file.

Enter the command ./GA_installer.sh to run the first installation script.

At the Enter primary name server IP prompt, enter the IP address of your primary DNS server. Enter y to confirm the entry.

Note If a DNS server is unavailable, enter 0.0.0.0 as the IP address of the DNS server to prevent system functionality from being negatively affected.
