Technologies in ASAB Maestro

Technology is a specific type of a service (i.e. NGINX, Mongo) that provides resources to other services.

Besides its main functionality as a service, ASAB Remote Control microservice extends the technologies and their impact on the cluster configuration.

Some configuration options require up-to-date knowledge of the cluster components. For example, if a microservice needs configuration of Kafka servers, ASAB Remote Control's Kafka tech checks where Kafka is running and provides the configuration.

Each technology is designed to provide one or many from following features:


Technology provides parameters that can be used in the model and descriptor during templating.

Descriptor section

A technology may utilize its specific section of the descriptors. For example, see Nginx tech.

    configname: conf/asab-remote-control.conf
    config: {}
