    1. Installation Overview

    This document describes how to install the MURAL application. MURAL provides

    Web-based reporting and analytics abilities for deep packet inspection (DPI) data

    emerging from your network.

    1.1 Before you begin

    Before installing MURAL, you should possess a working knowledge of the fol-

    lowing:

    l Linux

    l Cisco UCS

    Prior to installing the application, we recommend that you:

    l Review the MURAL 3.9 Release Notes.

    l Complete a training course on MURAL.

    l Ensure that installation package components are available. For more inform-

    ation see "Installation Package " on page 10.

    l Have an understanding of Cisco UCS hardware administration.

    l Ensure that MURAL system hardware installation has been completed suc-

    cessfully as specified in the bill of materials (BOM) and the setup is ready to

    install the system.

    l The number of each type of node is customized for your deployment.

    l Update the CIQ sheet completely, excluding ‘storageInfo’ section with MURAL

    setup details as required. For more information, see "Understanding the CIQ

    Sheet" on page 94.

    1.2 System Components

    The following figure illustrates the components of the MURAL platform, focusing

    on how the data flows through the system:

    1.3 Standard Setup

    The MURAL platform consists of the following nodes, each hosted on blades in the

    UCS Chassis:

    1. General Management System (GMS)—Provides centralized management of

    the Reflex platform nodes, such as remote manufacturing of blades

    (installing the MURAL operating system), patch management, monitoring

    of all nodes and operations, and importing and running node con-

    figurations. The GMS node cluster supports high availability.

    2. Collector—Collects data streams pushed to the Reflex platform, interprets

    the exported flows, enriches them with static data, and assembles data

    sets. The Collector stores the raw data in the Hadoop file system (HDFS)

    and sends it to the Compute node. The Collector node cluster can have any

    number of servers, in pairs for master and standby and uses 1+1 redund-

    ancy (transparent failover between pairs of active-active nodes).

    3. UI/Caching (Rubix)—Hosts the Rubix engine and data cache. The Rubix

    engine queries the Insta nodes constantly and when new data is available,

    it fetches it to store in the data cache, so that it can respond more quickly

    9 Copyright © 2016, Cisco Systems, Inc.

  • MURAL Software Installation Guide

    to requests from the UI engine. The Caching node is sometimes called the

    Rubix node. The Caching node uses N+1 redundancy in active-active mode.

    4. Compute node—Analyzes and aggregates the data, creating data cubes. The

    Compute node cluster can have any number of servers, depending on your

    deployment, and uses N+1 redundancy.

    5. Insta node—Stores and manages the processed data in a columnar data-

    base. It also manages the Insta database, which stores processed data

    cubes. The Insta node cluster has two servers with 1+1 redundancy.

    Apart from standard installations, MURAL system can be prepared with fewer

    blades by accommodating two or three application components into a single

    cluster, as described in the following sections.

    1.3.1 Starter Pack Setup

    In the Starter Pack setup, GMS, Collector (with Name-node) and UI components

    are hosted together on the same cluster.

    1.3.2 Medium Pack Setup

    In the Medium Pack setup, G
