events-nats: Gerrit event producer for NATS

Build Status

Synopsis

This plugins allows to define a distributed stream of events published by Gerrit.

Events can be anything, from the traditional stream events to the Gerrit metrics.

This plugin requires NATS Jetstream and Gerrit 3.6 or later.

Environments

  • linux
  • java-11
  • Bazel

Build

The events-nats plugin can be built as a regular ‘in-tree’ plugin. That means it is required to clone a Gerrit source tree first and then to clone the events-nats plugin source directory into the /plugins path. Additionally, the plugins/external_plugin_deps.bzl file needs to be updated to include the events-nats plugin external dependencies.

git clone --recursive https://gerrit.googlesource.com/gerrit
git clone https://gerrit.googlesource.com/plugins/events-nats gerrit/plugins/events-nats
cd gerrit
rm plugins/external_plugin_deps.bzl
ln -s ./events-nats/external_plugin_deps.bzl plugins/.

If your build includes multiple plugins requiring external dependencies edit plugins/external_plugin_deps.bzl. E.g. to include dependencies of both the events-nats and the multi-site plugin:

load("//tools/bzl:maven_jar.bzl", "GERRIT", "MAVEN_CENTRAL", "MAVEN_LOCAL", "maven_jar")
load("//plugins/events-nats:external_plugin_deps.bzl", deps_events_nats = "external_plugin_deps")
load("//plugins/multi-site:external_plugin_deps.bzl", deps_multi_site = "external_plugin_deps")

def external_plugin_deps():
    deps_events_nats()
    deps_multi_site()

To build the events-nats plugins, issue this command from the Gerrit source path:

bazel build plugins/events-nats

The output is created in

bazel-genfiles/plugins/events-nats/events-nats.jar

Minimum Configuration

Assuming a running NATS JetStream broker on the same Gerrit host, add the following settings to etc/gerrit.config:

    [plugin "events-nats"]
        server = nats://localhost:4222

Testing

Starting a local NATS JetStream server for testing:

    docker run -d --name nats-main -p 4222:4222 -p 6222:6222 -p 8222:8222 nats -js

You can use the NATS command line client to inspect and manage NATS.
