  • snapshots 2017-07 of the mediawiki_history table is ready, and includes all wikis. This is the first time we have all wikis in this fully publicly shareable denormalized history of all edit metadata.
  • Ongoing work to rebuild kafka cluster, just upgraded varnishkafka to be able to use TLS
  • Found a small issue with the way kafka2sse (EventStreams) uses librdkafka, working on deploying now to scb. Until then, we may be losing one or two events there due to an interaction between varnishkafka and librdkafka
  • Still one person short due to paternity leave
  • Added continous integration to wikistats 2.0 UI, still evaluating usage of diffusion/differential over gerrit
  • Eventlogging purging ongoing, really slow on one of the slaves, we need to free disk space faster to not run into disk issues so older eventlogging schemas with loads of data not frequently used will be archived in hadoop. For example:
  • Waiting for reading Data analyst to vet family wide (* unique devices metric.
  • Upgraded Druid storage to 0.9.2 to be able to test metric calculation for edit metrics using data from Edit Data Lake, performance of groupBy is much better
