This guide will give an overview on how KubeDB Enterprise operator scales up or down
MongoDB database replicas of various component such as ReplicaSet, Shard, ConfigServer, Mongos, etc.
The following diagram shows how KubeDB Enterprise operator scales up or down
MongoDB database components. Open the image in a new tab to see the enlarged version.
The Horizontal scaling process consists of the following steps:
At first, a user creates a
MongoDB Custom Resource (CR).
KubeDB Community operator watches the
When the operator finds a
MongoDB CR, it creates required number of
StatefulSets and related necessary stuff like secrets, services, etc.
Then, in order to scale the various components (ie. ReplicaSet, Shard, ConfigServer, Mongos, etc.) of the
MongoDB database the user creates a
MongoDBOpsRequest CR with desired information.
KubeDB Enterprise operator watches the
When it finds a
MongoDBOpsRequest CR, it halts the
MongoDB object which is referred from the
MongoDBOpsRequest. So, the
KubeDB Community operator doesn’t perform any operations on the
MongoDB object during the horizontal scaling process.
KubeDB Enterprise operator will scale the related StatefulSet Pods to reach the expected number of replicas defined in the
After the successfully scaling the replicas of the related StatefulSet Pods, the
KubeDB Enterprise operator updates the number of replicas in the
MongoDB object to reflect the updated state.
After the successful scaling of the
MongoDB replicas, the
KubeDB Enterprise operator resumes the
MongoDB object so that the
KubeDB Community operator resumes its usual operations.
In the next docs, we are going to show a step by step guide on horizontal scaling of MongoDB database using
