Add amire80 to analytics-privatedata-users group
Closed, ResolvedPublic



According to @Nuria's comment at T122479, I need access to stat1002.eqiad.wmnet in order to run scheduled queries.

If it's relevant, my username on terbium and Gerrit is amire80.


(As with T122479, I wasn't sure which project tags to add here, so please fix them accordingly. Thanks.)

Some example of thetypes of queries you need to run will be great (no need of those to file for access but just a s a reference)

Most of these will be for the wikishared database. When I run them on terbium, they take a few minutes.

One of them is to the databases of each Wikipedia, checking which articles that had the contentranslation revision tag were deleted a day before. On terbium this takes about five minutes for all the languages.

You can see the shell scripts here:

There are 3 things that you need to get access:

  • a signed NDA, that you should already have, otherwise you wouldn't have terbium access,
  • the ok with a comment here from your direct supervisor
  • the ok from the service owner, which probably would be @Nuria (for server access) and myself (for database access).

After that, access will be reviewed and, usually, accepted.

I think Amire80 might alreday have acess to 1002, i seem to remember him having run queries there before. If he does not it i s OK to grant it on our end.

@Nuria, as far as I can see, unless I am misinterpreting the permissions, he should not access yet to that specific machine, but has access to others (terbium and fluorine).

Adding @Arrbee (Runa) as supervisor.

I only remember running stuff on terbium.

Change 261217 had a related patch set uploaded (by Jcrespo):
Add amire80 to statistics-users for quering mysql analytics-slave

Aside from that patch, assuming it is granted I *may* have to provide extra mysql grants to the stats user.

Hello, the request is approved from my side. Thanks.

The access is now in review, a minimum of 3 days is required for security review. That would usually mean getting a decision by 5th of January, but I apologize on behalf of the team if there is any delay, as these days many ops will be traveling or on vacations.

Hi all,

User @Amire80 has been added to the group "statistics-users" now, since i merged the pending patch to do that.

But the server stat1002 does not have that user.?

id: amire80: no such user

It seems other groups are requested that give access to stat1002 then. Do you know which?

P.S. Trying to figure out which make sense. Looking at now (thanks Robh for the link)

amire80 has been added to the group statistics-users on stat1003

[stat1003:~] $ id amire80
uid=2076(amire80) gid=500(wikidev) groups=500(wikidev),726(statistics-users)

and the docs say:


Access to stat1003 for number crunching and connecting to the SQL research slaves.

Is "connecting to SQL research slaves" what you want? Then this is ticket is resolved and the title should just be stat1003 instead of stat1002 and you' d use that.

Or is it really stat1002 and one of the other groups described on

@jcrespo I guess it depends on the mysql grants you said you have to add anyways?

@Ottomata Was statistics-users and stat1003 correct for this use case?

It works for me in stat1003 (and thanks to @akosiaris for some extra help with ssh configuration).

@Nuria, is that the right host?

I think either 1003 or 1002 work to access analytics slaves thus this ticket can be closed if things are working for amir.

@ellery says that I will definitely need stat1002 to run the queries I need. Currently I don't seem to have access to it.

Please clarify how you will run these queries. If MySQL, then you only need access to the 'researchers' group, which will get you access to stat1003 and the research user password.

If you need access to Hive/Hadoop and private webrequest data, then you'll need to be in the analytics-privatedata-users group. This will get you access to stat1002 and stat1004.

Yes, can we please start talking in terms of groups instead of hosts?

ellery added a comment.EditedMay 4 2016, 8:23 PM

@Amire80 needs to run hive queries to count the number times users navigate across wikipedia language projects.

Something like this:

        REGEXP_EXTRACT(parse_url(referer,'HOST'), '([a-z]*)(.m)?', 1) AS prev,
        normalized_host.project AS curr
        -- select a relevant timespan to query over
        year = 2016
        AND month IN (5)
        AND day IN (1)
        AND hour IN (1,2)
        -- only consider wikipedia article requests from users
        AND webrequest_source = 'text'
        AND is_pageview 
        AND agent_type = 'user'
        AND normalized_host.project_class = 'wikipedia'
        -- only consider wikipedia article referers (this is an approximation)
        AND parse_url(referer,'HOST') RLIKE ''
        AND parse_url(referer,'PATH') RLIKE  '^/wiki/'

it will be handled, i'm just giving it back to the pool because access requests are handled based on a duty rotation each week and this was a couple months ago.
