ZooKeeper cluster with Docker Compose

In this post I talked about setting up a ZooKeeper cluster using Vagrant. In this post I will talk about doing it without having to launch 3 different virtual servers in our development environment thanks to Docker Compose. We will need Docker and Docker Compose installed, of course.

The docker-compose.yml will look like this:

version: "3.9"
    container_name: zk1
    hostname: zk1
    image: bitnami/zookeeper:3.6.2
      - 21811:2181
      - ZOO_SERVER_ID=1
      - ZOO_SERVERS=,zk2:2888:3888,zk3:2888:3888
    container_name: zk2
    hostname: zk2
    image: bitnami/zookeeper:3.6.2
      - 21812:2181
      - ZOO_SERVER_ID=2
      - ZOO_SERVERS=zk1:2888:3888,,zk3:2888:3888
    container_name: zk3
    hostname: zk3
    image: bitnami/zookeeper:3.6.2
      - 21813:2181
      - ZOO_SERVER_ID=3
      - ZOO_SERVERS=zk1:2888:3888,zk2:2888:3888,
    container_name: zoonavigator
    image: elkozmon/zoonavigator
      - 9000:9000
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

It will set up a 3 node cluster, zk1, zk2 and zk3. All we have to do is:

$ docker-compose up -d zk1 zk2 zk3 zoonavigator

We could even access the ZooKeeper servers from the host server thanks to port forwarding: zk1 will be available through port 21811, zk2 through port 21812, and zk3 through port 21813.

Finally, we can also set up a container that will run zoonavigator, a web-based ZooKeeper UI and editor/browser with many features.

We can access zoonavigator from a browser in the host server just using the URL http://localhost:9000/, and connect to zk1 just using zk1:8121 as the connection string.

just using zk1:2181 as the connection string*
