IoTronic is an Internet of Things resource management service for OpenStack clouds.

IoTronic allows to manage Internet of Things resources as part of an OpenStack data center.


Basic scenario

For this installation of the Iotronic Service we are considering a scenario with the following hosts and softwares:

  • Controller ( Ubuntu linux): Mysql, Keystone, Rabbitmq
  • Iotronic ( Ubuntu linux ): Iotronic-conductor, iotronic-wamp-agent, crossbar
  • Board: iotronic-lightining-rod

Controller host setup

According to the Openstack Documentation install the following softwares on the controller host:

  • SQL database
  • Message queue
  • Memcached
  • Keystone

Creation of the database ----------------------On the dbms create the iotronic db and configure the access for the user iotronic:

MariaDB [(none)]> CREATE DATABASE iotronic;
MariaDB [(none)]> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON iotronic.* TO iotronic@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY ‘IOTRONIC_DBPASS’;

Add the user and the enpoints on Keystone:

source adminrc
openstack service create iot --name Iotronic
openstack user create --password-prompt iotronic

openstack role add --project service --user iotronic admin
openstack role add admin_iot_project
openstack role add manager_iot_project
openstack role add user_iot

openstack endpoint create --region RegionOne iot public http://IP_IOTRONIC:1288
openstack endpoint create --region RegionOne iot internal http://IP_IOTRONIC:1288
openstack endpoint create --region RegionOne iot admin http://1IP_IOTRONIC:1288

Configuring Iotronic Host ----------------------


Install crossbar on the Iotronic host following the official guide

Iotronic Installation

Get the source:

git clone

install the python-mysqldb:

sudo apt-get install python-mysqldb 

and Iotronic:

cd iotronic
sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
sudo pip install twisted
sudo pip install paramiko
sudo python install

create a log dir:

mkdir -p /var/log/iotronic

populate the database:

cd iotronic/utils

API Service Configuration ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Install apache and the other components:

sudo apt-get install apache2 python-setuptools libapache2-mod-wsgi libssl-dev

create /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/iotronic.conf and copy the following content:

Listen 1288
<VirtualHost *:1288>
    WSGIDaemonProcess iotronic 
    #user=root group=root threads=10 display-name=%{GROUP}
    WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/cgi-bin/iotronic/app.wsgi

    #SetEnv APACHE_RUN_USER stack
    #SetEnv APACHE_RUN_GROUP stack
    WSGIProcessGroup iotronic

    ErrorLog /var/log/iotronic/iotronic-api_error.log
    LogLevel debug
    CustomLog /var/log/iotronic/iotronic-api_access.log combined

    <Directory /etc/iotronic>
        WSGIProcessGroup iotronic
        WSGIApplicationGroup %{GLOBAL}
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted

edit /etc/iotronic/iotronic.conf with the correct configuration.

There is just one wamp-agent and it must be set as the registration agent:

register_agent = True

restart apache:

systemctl restart apache2

Start the service (better use screen):

screen -S conductor

screen -S agent
