    +This provides a Management Pack (MPack) extension for [Apache Ambari](
that simplifies the provisioning, management and monitoring of Metron on clusters of any size.
    +This allows you to easily install Metron using a simple, guided process.  This also allows
you to monitor cluster health and even secure your cluster with kerberos.
    +### Prerequisites
    +* Ambari 2.4.2+
    +* Installable Metron packages (either RPMs or DEBs) located in a repository on each host
at `/localrepo`.
    +* A [Node.js]( repository installed on
the host running the Management and Alarm UI.
    +### Quick Start
    +1. Build the Metron MPack. Execute the following command from the project's root directory.
    +    ```
    +    mvn clean package -Pmpack -DskipTests
    +    ```
    +1. This results in the Mpack being produced at the following location.
    +    ```
    +    metron-deployment/packaging/ambari/metron-mpack/target/metron_mpack-x.y.z.0.tar.gz
    +    ```
    +1. Copy the tarball to the host where Ambari Server is installed.
    +1. Ensure that Ambari Server is stopped.
    +1. Install the MPack.
    +    ```
    +    ambari-server install-mpack --mpack=metron_mpack-x.y.z.0.tar.gz --verbose
    +    ```
    +1. Metron swill now be available as an installable service within Ambari.  
    +### Installation Notes
    +The MPack will make all Metron services available in Ambari in the same manner as any
other services in a stack.  These can be installed using Ambari's user interface using "Add
Services" or during an initial cluster install.
    +#### Co-Location
    +1. The Parsers, Enrichment, Indexing, and Profiler masters should be colocated on a host
with a Kafka Broker.  This is necessary so that the correct Kafka topics can be created.
    +1. The Enrichment and Profiler masters should be colocated on a host with an HBase client.
 This is necessary so that the Enrichment, Threat Intel, and Profile tables can be created.
    +This colocation is currently not enforced by Ambari and should be managed by either a
Service or Stack advisor as an enhancement.
    +#### Kerberization
    +The MPack allows Metron to be automatically kerberized in two different ways.  
    +* Metron can be installed on a non-kerberized cluster and then the entire cluster can
be kerberized using Ambari.  
    +* Alternatively, Metron can be installed on top of an already kerberized cluster.  
    +Using the MPack is preferred, but instructions for manually Kerberizing a cluster with
Metron can be found at [](../../
    +#### Zeppelin Import
    +A custom action is available in Ambari to import Zeppelin dashboards. See the [metron-indexing
documentation](../metron-platform/metron-indexing) for more information.
    +#### Offline Installation
    +There is only one point during installation that reaches out to the internet.  That is
necessary to retrieve the GeoIP database.

    Sidenote, that should just be two slashes there (`file://`), since the extra `/` is the
root dir, iirc.

> The README and docs under metron-deployment/ are rather confusing and containing outdated
information.  I'd like to get that cleaned up.
