MiniFabric for a 10 Nodes setup


WebZest
 

I have been testing MiniFabric for a few days and really like the setup process as well as the ease-of-use as a Hyperledger Fabric learning tool.

I would like to push the envelope and test it out with a set of 10 PCs running Ubuntu 20.04.

 

Are there any documentation on how to deploy a MiniFabric with SWARM or a similar decentralized setup?

 

Looking forward to getting some feedback on how to get started.

You should be able to do this with Swarm.  Run Docker Swarm to get your token and to make one of your 10PCs the swarm manager.

Give the URL with the token to the other 9 PCs so they can connect to your network.

Things to note:

1. Make sure you have Port 2377 open

2. The other machines must have Docker installed on them.

Let me know if this helps or if you have any other questions.  I will test this on my end as well.  

I use Minifabric and I love it.

Hi Pavon,

I setup the prerequisites on VM1.  I will open the Firewall port 2377 and duplicate it nine times.
Then, I will setup SWARM to connect them together.
Is it then the right time to start installing minifabric on each one of theme one by one?
How many nodes, peeros, orderers should I setup on them?

This is exciting and can't wait to see it work.

Pls advise.

I do not think that you need to setup swarm for everything to work. As long as each host(node) can access other nodes, then you just need to setup minifabric using -e true flag. Setup a small network first on one node, then grow it to multiple orgs and nodes. Please see the add new org to fabric network docs for some ideas.
