Scrum of Scrums

  • virt100x outage last week, we have lost deployment-cxserver01 . Had trouble rebuilding it due to labs partitionning improvement. Kindly fixed and enhanced by Andrew/Coren
  • Andrew and Rob reviewing quotes for additional virt hardware today (re: new beta cluster)
  • Maybe we need to backup instances
  • Second beta cluster still being discussed

Browser tests

  • Stuff went red while Chris was away
  • mediawiki/selenium has env to fix xvfb race condition. Only used for local browser tests though.
  • since all jobs are on Sauce, should we stop throttling them?
    • Let Chris work on getting the builds back to green first
    • Jobs were running SauceLabs and had timeouts, so unrelated to xvfb race condition
    • Conclusion: keep them throttle-
  • Continuing work on environment abstraction
  • Release trafficcontrol MWV role (uses tc + iptables to simulate network conditions)
    • Perform MMV perf tests using trafficcontrol profiles
  • Distribute survey! (today)
