Local environment setup

This script configures a full environment to simulate a Gerrit Multi-Site setup. The environment is composed by:

  • 2 gerrit instances deployed by default in /tmp
  • 1 kafka node and 1 zookeeper node
  • 1 HA-PROXY


  • java
  • docker and docker-compose
  • wget
  • envsubst
  • haproxy


Simplest setup with all default values and cleanup previous deployment

sh setup_local_env/setup.sh --release-war-file /path/to/gerrit.war --multisite-lib-file /path/to/multi-site.jar

Cleanup the previous deployments

sh setup_local_env/setup.sh --just-cleanup-env true

  • Assumes the ssh replication is done always on port 22 on both instances
  • When cloning projects via ssh, public keys entries are added to known_hosts
    • Clean up the old entries when doing a new deployment, otherwise just use HTTP
