take steps outlined at techops offiste to (try to) address salt reliability
Closed, ResolvedPublic


These are short terms steps that may or may not address the issue completely.

  • Move salt master off the puppet master on a host running jessie
  • Set up a syndic in codfw, eqiad, on separate hardware, and in the other dcs on he bastion hosts (won't need more than that) repoting to the master, all on jessie
  • Check dependencies for salt 2014.7 supplied by jessie and do backporting as needed for libzmq

Note that if the master-syndic model works out, we'll want to go multimaster (second master in codfw probably) with a fallback syndic in each dc for redundancy.

Huh, well it looks like salt is reliable after just moving to its own server with some patches to the master and minion. So while I'm going to deploy eventually multimaster for redundancy's sake (and syndics for the same reason), that's not part of this ticket. And I can close it, w00t!
