Setting up a Mesos-0.9.0 Cluster

Apart from running in Standalone mode, Spark can also run on clusters managed by Apache Mesos. "Apache Mesos is a cluster manager that provides efficient resource isolation and sharing across distributed applications, or frameworks." 

In addition to Spark, Hadoop, MPI and Hypertable also support running on clusters managed by Apache Mesos. 

Listed below are the steps for deploying a Mesos Cluster. These should to be run on the node supposed to be the Master node in the Mesos Cluster.

1. Mesos 0.9.0-incubating can be downloaded from:                                                                                                   

2. Extract Mesos setup
tar -xvzf  mesos-0.9.0-incubating.tar.gz                                                                                                                                                                                                    

3. Change the current working directory to the extracted mesos setup for it's compilation. 
cd mesos-0.9.0                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

The JAVA_HOME to be used needs to specified, while configuring Mesos. This can be done by specifying a command line option "--with-java-home" to the configure command as shown below:
./configure --with-java-home=/usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk.x86_64                                                                                                  

After configuring, run the following two commands:
sudo make install                                                                                                                                                                                        

The following files and directories should have been created, if the above steps have been executed successfully:

4. Add the MESOS_NATIVE_LIBRARY variable declaration to "conf/" in Spark's "conf" directory as shown below:
export MESOS_NATIVE_LIBRARY=/usr/local/lib/                                                                                                                                           

5. Copy the Mesos setup on all the nodes to be included in the Mesos cluster on the same location or simply setup Mesos on each of them by running:
cd mesos-0.9.0
sudo make install                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

This completes the process of setting up a Mesos Cluster.

Configure Mesos for deployment

1. On the Mesos Cluster's master node, edit the files "/usr/local/var/mesos/deploy/masters" to list down the IP of the Master node and "/usr/local/var/mesos/deploy/slaves" to list down the IPs of the slaves.

2. On all nodes of the Mesos Cluster, edit "/usr/local/var/mesos/conf/mesos.conf" and add the line master=HOST:5050, where HOST is the IP of the Mesos Cluster's master node.

This is the end of the Configuration Phase.

Good luck.
