This guide will give an overview on how KubeDB Enterprise operator updates the resources(for example CPU and Memory etc.) of the
The following diagram shows how KubeDB Enterprise operator updates the resources of the
MongoDB database. Open the image in a new tab to see the enlarged version.
The vertical 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 update the resources(for example
Memory 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 vertical scaling process.
KubeDB Enterprise operator will update resources of the StatefulSet Pods to reach desired state.
After the successful update of the resources of the StatefulSet’s replica, the
KubeDB Enterprise operator updates the
MongoDB object to reflect the updated state.
After the successful update of the
MongoDB resources, 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 updating resources of MongoDB database using
