Scrum of scrums/2015-05-13

  • Event Logging outage last week due to huge volume spike caused data loss. We're backfilling now.
  • Event Logging won't consume your data into mysql until you have 100 events, so low throughput schemas won't show up for a while. A new patch (being tested now) will fix to consume at least every 5 minutes
  • People can't test Event Logging in the beta cluster because /var keeps filling up on deployment-eventlogging02.eqiad.wmflabs. Yuvi enabled the /srv mount but we can't run puppet due to T96921. Need some ops help but Andrew is on vacation. In the meantime I dumped the log db, deleted the /var/lib/mysql/ibdata1 file and reloaded the log db backup.
