ACI Event Driven Worker Queue


  1. web-server: This is the host for the dashboard and the api. The dashboard will let you add work to the queue. When work is added a yellow pending container will show up. This is a default place holder until the actual ACI instance comes up and adds it's InProgress state to the DB to be read. Once the container has reached InProgress, the UI will chagne the default pending to Blue with the container's name in place. You can also hit the "More Details" Button to open the model with that containers ID. Currently the modal is calling to the metrics api endpoint for that specific container.

  2. go-worker: This is the container to be spawned by the azure function watching the service bus queue. Its takes the enviorment variables: MESSAGE: The message from the queue, CONTAINER_NAME: container group name, DATABASE_URI: CosmosDb mongo connection string. IMPORTANT: You must remove the ssl=true url param from the connection string or it will break. When the container is started, it will add a state entry to the DB with its name and InProgress. It then waits a set number of seconds and Adds Done as its state to the DB.

  3. Spawner-functions: This consists of two functions. One is watching a queue to create aci instances and another is watching a queue to delete aci instances.

Deployment Steps

  1. Clone the repo. ```console git clone

cd aci-event-driven-worker-queue ``` 2. Open and login to Azure Cloud Shell.

  1. Create resource group. console az group create -l westus -n aci-event-driven

  2. Create a service principal. console az ad sp create-for-rbac -n aci-event-driven --role contributor Output sample: ```


    "appId": "fb7c4111-2144-4489-8fd9-XXXXXXXXX",

    "displayName": "aci-event-driven",

    "name": "http://aci-event-driven",

    "password": "0fa91eda-261e-47ad-bb65-XXXXXXXX",

    "tenant": "3dad2b09-9e66-4eb8-9bef-XXXXXXX"


  3. Cd into the arm directory and update the azuredeploy.parameters.json in the folder arm with the service principal credential created above (appId, password, tenant).

  4. Deploy the Azure resources with the ARM template. This will take a few minutes. console az group deployment create --template-file azuredeploy.json --parameters @azuredeploy.parameters.json -g aci-event-driven >Note: The output fqdn is the URL of the ACI dashboard.

  5. Download NPM packages. ```console cd ../spawner-functions

    npm install ```

  6. Compress the files inside the spawner-functions folder as a .zip file. console cd .. zip -r spawner-functions

  7. Deploy the .zip file to Azure Functions. console az functionapp deployment source config-zip -g aci-event-driven -n <function-app-name> --src
