Beta Cluster stability / Staging[edit]

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/board/497/?order=priority
Quarterly Priority: Green nightly builds on staging: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T88701
Quarterly Priority: Stable uptime metrics of the Staging cluster: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T88705
  • Unstable last week due to mgiration to new labs hardware yeah!, scap, disk full, mw stacktracing...
  • https://graphite.wmflabs.org/dashboard/#availability
  • Request from Andrew: If there are any instances that can be easily destroyed + recreated, please do (eg in staging?)
  • Scap $TMPDIR craziness causing scap failures

Deployment Cabal[edit]

Took a step back from fighting over salt/ansible/trebuchet/scap and decided to make a common model for ideal deployments.

  • Once we have a shared vision, it's easier to decide what tools to use
  • Will define clear steps and requirements for each of those steps
  • Will take existing service deploys, MW code deploys, trebuchet-based deploys all into account
  • https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T97068 might eventually contain details about this grand vision
