Beta Cluster

The Beta cluster is a functional, production-like environment in Wikimedia Labs suitable for final-stage testing of new features. It runs off git master and has its MediaWiki core and extensions code updated about every three minutes.

Rationale[edit]

The aim is to provide an exact copy of the WMF production cluster (including db hosts, apaches, logging, squids, varnish caching, image scalers, etc.) using Wikimedia Labs instances.

Open tasks[edit]

See the workboard in Phabricator.

Testing changes on Beta Cluster[edit]

The beta cluster uses the same wmf-config directory in the MW core repository as production, but in addition the beta cluster machines load InitialiseSettings-labs.php, CommonSettings-labs.php, and extension-list-labs files so you can have settings that only apply to Labs.

If you need to run a maintenance script on the Beta Cluster, ssh to deployment-tin.deployment-prep.eqiad.wmflabs (proxying through bastion.wmflabs.org).
