procure syslog hardware in codfw
Closed, ResolvedPublic


we would need one machine for syslog in codfw, specs are fairly basic and can match lithium's: dell R420 with 16GB RAM and at least 2x 1TB disks (lithium has 2x 500GB) probably a spare would do too given big enough disks

Event Timeline

So all of the spare hardware currently in codfw far exceeds that of lithium.eqiad.wmnet.

lithium is a Central syslog server (role::syslog::centralserver)
Single Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2450 v2 @ 2.50GHz/8 core
Dual 500GB SATA

spares in codfw, 4 of the same model:
Dual Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2640 @ 2.8/8 core
4 * 4TB SATA

So the spares in codfw are over the required specification. The spares were purchased in March of this year, so they are not that old. Due to their age being fairly new, and them being overly powerful, I'll create a sub-task in procurement S4 that has pricing for a new system.

I'm stalling this task for procurement T138353. I'll gather pricing info on that task, and present the various options for review.
