These programs are supplied as part of most Linux distributions, so
usually they can be installed via the standard package manager. Also
many of them will already be installed on a standard machine. On
Debian/Ubuntu, you can use this command line to install all required

packages, except for RBD, DRBD and Xen::

.. _socat-note:
.. note::
  Ganeti's import/export functionality uses ``socat`` with OpenSSL for
  transferring data between nodes. By default, OpenSSL 0.9.8 and above
  employ transparent compression of all data using zlib if supported by
  both sides of a connection. In cases where a lot of data is
  transferred, this can lead to an increased CPU usage. Additionally,
  Ganeti already compresses all data using ``gzip`` where it makes sense
  (for inter-cluster instance moves).

  To remedey this situation, patches implementing a new ``socat`` option
  for disabling OpenSSL compression have been contributed and will
  likely be included in the next feature release. Until then, users or
  distributions need to apply the patches on their own.

  Ganeti will use the option if it's detected by the ``configure``
  script; auto-detection can be disabled by explicitely passing
  ``--enable-socat-compress`` (use the option to disable compression) or
  ``--disable-socat-compress`` (don't use the option).

  The patches and more information can be found on
  http://www.dest-unreach.org/socat/contrib/socat-opensslcompress.html.

Haskell requirements
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you want to enable the `htools` component, which is recommended on
bigger deployments (this give you automatic instance placement, cluster
balancing, etc.), then you need to have a Haskell compiler installed on
your build machine (but this is not required on the machines which are
just going to run Ganeti). More specifically:
99

100
- `GHC <http://www.haskell.org/ghc/>`_ version 6.12 or higher
101 102 103 104 105 106
- or even better, `The Haskell Platform
  <http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/>`_ which gives you a simple way
  to bootstrap Haskell
- `json <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/json>`_, a JSON library
- `network <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/network>`_, a basic
  network library
107 108
- `parallel <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/parallel>`_, a parallel
  programming library (note: tested with up to version 3.x)
109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117
- `curl <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/curl>`_, bindings for the
  curl library, only needed if you want these tools to connect to remote
  clusters (as opposed to the local one)

All of these are also available as package in Debian/Ubuntu::

  $ apt-get install ghc6 libghc6-json-dev libghc6-network-dev \
                    libghc6-parallel-dev libghc6-curl-dev

118 119 120 121 122 123
Note that more recent version have switched to GHC 7.x and the packages
were renamed::

  $ apt-get install ghc libghc-json-dev libghc-network-dev \
                    libghc-parallel-dev libghc-curl-dev

124 125 126 127 128 129
If using a distribution which does not provide them, the first install
the Haskell platform and then install the additional libraries via
``cabal``::

  $ cabal install json network parallel curl

130 131 132 133 134
The compilation of the htools components is automatically enabled when
the compiler and the requisite libraries are found. You can use the
``--enable-htools`` configure flag to force the selection (at which
point ``./configure`` will fail if it doesn't find the prerequisites).

135 136 137 138 139
In Ganeti version 2.6, one of the daemons (``ganeti-confd``) is shipped
in two versions: the Python default version (which has no extra
dependencies), and an experimental Haskell version. This latter version
can be enabled via the ``./configure`` flag ``--enable-confd=haskell``
and a few has extra dependencies:
140

141 142 143 144 145 146
- `hslogger <http://software.complete.org/hslogger>`_, version 1.1 and
  above (note that Debian Squeeze only has version 1.0.9)
- `Crypto <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/Crypto>`_, tested with
  version 4.2.4
- `text <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/text>`_
- ``bytestring``, which usually comes with the compiler
147

148 149
These libraries are available in Debian Wheezy (but not in Squeeze), so
you can use either apt::
150

151
  $ apt-get install libghc-hslogger-dev libghc-crypto-dev libghc-text-dev
152

153 154 155
or ``cabal``::

  $ cabal install hslogger Crypto text
156

157
to install them.

This will install the software under ``/usr/local``. You then need to
copy ``doc/examples/ganeti.initd`` to ``/etc/init.d/ganeti`` and
integrate it into your boot sequence (``chkconfig``, ``update-rc.d``,
etc.).

following directories:
