1. Deploy the servicemesh-jaeger-resource helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine


    To deploy the servicemesh-jaeger-resource Helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine using Pulumi, you'll need to follow a few steps. You'll begin by creating a new Pulumi project and setting up the Kubernetes provider to interact with your Linode Kubernetes cluster. Then, you'll use the Helm Chart resource in Pulumi to deploy the servicemesh-jaeger-resource chart to your cluster.

    The code structure will be as follows:

    1. Import the necessary Pulumi and Kubernetes packages.
    2. Configure the Kubernetes provider to connect to your Linode Kubernetes cluster.
    3. Define a Helm Chart resource for the servicemesh-jaeger-resource.

    Here is the program that outlines the deployment process:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Set up your Linode provider configuration. // If you have kubeconfig for your LKE, Pulumi can use that file directly. // Alternatively, you need to configure the provider with the required credentials. // Configure the Kubernetes provider using the kubeconfig from Linode const provider = new k8s.Provider("linode-k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: "<Your Linode Kubernetes Engine kubeconfig here>", }); // Define the Helm chart resource for the servicemesh-jaeger-resource const jaegerChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("servicemesh-jaeger", { chart: "jaeger", version: "<appropriate version here>", namespace: "default", // Change to the namespace where you want the chart installed if not default. fetchOpts: { repo: "https://jaegertracing.github.io/helm-charts", // The repository URL where the chart can be found. }, }, { provider: provider }); // Export the base URL for the Jaeger dashboard export const jaegerUrl = jaegerChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "servicemesh-jaeger", "status") .apply(status => `http://${status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname}`);

    Make sure to replace <Your Linode Kubernetes Engine kubeconfig here> with the actual kubeconfig from your Linode Kubernetes Engine. Additionally, specify the appropriate chart version in place of <appropriate version here>. You may also modify the namespace and Helm chart repository as needed.

    This program sets up a new Pulumi stack that will connect to your Linode Kubernetes cluster and deploy the Jaeger Helm chart, which is used for tracing transactions between distributed services. Once deployed, you can access the Jaeger UI by navigating to the jaegerUrl that is exported at the end of the execution.

    To initialize a new Pulumi project and run this program:

    1. Install Pulumi from the official website.
    2. Create a new directory for your project and navigate into it.
    3. Run pulumi new typescript to start a new Pulumi project in TypeScript.
    4. Replace the contents of index.ts with the code from above.
    5. Run npm install to install all necessary packages.
    6. Finally, execute pulumi up to preview and deploy the resources.

    The pulumi up command will show you a preview of the resources to be created. Confirm the deployment to proceed, and after a short wait, you should have Jaeger deployed on your Linode Kubernetes cluster.
