Singularity UI

The Singularity UI is a single page web app that uses the Singularity API to present information about deployed items.

Singularity UI status screen

It allows searching and display of information about active, paused, cooled down, cleaning, and pending items.

Singularity UI Deployed items Screen

Selecting a specific deployed item will display information about its active running tasks, all historical tasks from past deploys, a list of all executed deploys and a list of all updates to item settings (owners, instances, etc.)

Singularity UI Single Deployed Item Screen

Selecting an active task will display information about the task and provide access to application files and task logs.

Singularity UI Active Task Screen

Historical information about past task executions are also available and the Singularity UI allows users to directly retrieve the archived log files.

Singularity UI Historical Task Screen

Clicking on a deploy id will show all tasks associated with that deploy and any failure information if the deploy has failed.

Singularity UI Deploy

A dashboard with the user's deployed and favored items is available.

The Singularity UI contains functionality for performing certain actions on registered deployable items and their tasks:

  • Remove a deployed item. All running tasks (e.g. the service instances if it is a web service) are terminated and the item is unregistered from Singularity. Historical logs are not removed and will be connected with the item if it is re-registered to Singularity at a later stage.
  • Pause a deployed item. All running tasks are stopped but the item is not removed. Deploys of paused items are not possible. Users can un-pause the item to restart its tasks and be able to deploy.
  • Manually run a Scheduled Job or On-Demand item
  • Kill a running task. Tasks corresponding to instances of web service or worker items will be re-started instantly (if possible) - likely in another agent. Scheduled tasks will behave as if the task failed and may be rescheduled to run in the future depending on whether or not the job item has numRetriesOnFailure set.
  • Decommission a agent which means that all tasks running in the specific agent will be migrated to other agents.
  • Decommission a logical rack, meaning that all agent hosts in the rack will be decommissioned. The rackid attribute can be used when running the Mesos agent process to specify which rack the agent belongs to. For example when running in AWS a rack could corresponds to the availability zone ( /usr/local/sbin/Mesos-agent --attributes=rackid:us-east-1e).

Singularity UI Racks screen

For all displayed information, access is provided to the API payloads from which views are created. This can greatly help debugging of deploys and can be used by developers that create tools on top of Singularity API.
