Merge branch 'stable-3.0' * stable-3.0: Move routers configuration out of kafka domain Move subscribers related code out of kafka module Use BrokerApi for events consuming Move SourceAwareEventWrapper out of the kafka package Move Kafka consumer logic to a separate class Split event consumer logic into separate steps Move broker publish metrics to the BrokerApiWrapper Introduce DynamicItem<BrokerApi> and its BrokerApiWrapper Move BrokerPublisher into the Kafka package domain Rename EventFamily to EventTopic Use BrokerApi for sending stream events Use BrokerApi for sending project list updates Use BrokerApi for sending index events Introduce the abstract BrokerApi Message subscriber metric for number of message consumed Skip message logging when publishing failed ForwardedIndexChangeHandler: Suppress FutureReturnValueIgnored warning Leverage the MultiSiteMetrics hierarchy in SubscriberMetrics for making easier to create new metrics.

This plugin allows to deploy a distributed cluster of multiple Gerrit masters each using a separate site without sharing any storage. The alignment between the masters happens using the replication plugin and an external message broker.
Requirements for the Gerrit masters are:
NOTE: The multi-site plugin will not start if Gerrit is not yet migrated to NoteDb.
Currently, the only mode supported is one primary read/write master and multiple read-only masters but eventually the plan is to support multiple read/write masters. The read/write master is handling any traffic while the read-only masters are serving the Gerrit GUI assets, the HTTP GET REST API and git fetch requests (git-upload-pack). The read-only masters are kept synchronized with the read/write master in order to be always ready to become a read/write master.
For more details on the overall multi-site design and roadmap, please refer to the multi-site plugin DESIGN.md document
This plugin is released under the same Apache 2.0 license and copyright holders as of the Gerrit Code Review project.
The multi-site plugin is built like any other Gerrit plugin in tree mode, by cloning Gerrit and the multi-site plugin code, and checking them out on the desired branch.
Example of cloning Gerrit and multi-site for a stable-2.16 build:
git clone -b stable-2.16 https://gerrit.googlesource.com/gerrit git clone -b stable-2.16 https://gerrit.googlesource.com/plugins/multi-site cd gerrit/plugins ln -s ../../multi-site . rm external_plugin_deps.bzl ln -s multi-site/external_plugin_deps.bzl .
Example of building the multi-site plugin:
cd gerrit bazel build plugins/multi-site
The multi-site.jar plugin is generated to
Example of testing the multi-site plugin:
cd gerrit bazel test plugins/multi-site:multi_site_tests
NOTE: The multi-site tests include also the use of Docker containers for instantiating and using a Kafka/Zookeeper broker. Make sure you have a Docker daemon running (/var/run/docker.sock accessible) or a DOCKER_HOST pointing to a Docker server.
Install the multi-site plugin into the
$GERRIT_SITE/lib directory of all the Gerrit servers that are part of the multi-site cluster. Create a symbolic link from
$GERRIT_SITE/lib/multi-site.jar into the
Add the multi-site module to
$GERRIT_SITE/etc/gerrit.config as follows:
[gerrit] installDbModule = com.googlesource.gerrit.plugins.multisite.GitModule installModule = com.googlesource.gerrit.plugins.multisite.Module
$GERRIT_SITE/etc/multi-site.config on all Gerrit servers with the following basic settings:
[kafka] bootstrapServers = <kafka-host>:<kafka-port> [kafka "publisher"] enabled = true [kafka "subscriber"] enabled = true [ref-database] enabled = true [ref-database "zookeeper"] connectString = "localhost:2181"
For more details on the configuration settings, please refer to the multi-site configuration documentation.
You also need to setup the Git-level replication between nodes, for more details please refer to the replication plugin documentation.
