Kill limn1
Closed, ResolvedPublic0 Estimated Story Points


Limn1 is going to die and never wake up, labs team can't support it any longer and sounds like puppet hasn't run there in a million years. The dealine for labs team to kill that instance is March 2017.

Event Timeline

There are two types of dashboards:

Hey all pinged folks, this is what we're looking to do with dashboards from limn1.eqiad.wmnet:/var/lib/limn/


gp/ (check with @Ijon)
mobile-reportcard/ (easy to migrate but used by anyone? ping @Jdlrobson and @JKatzWMF)
multimedia-metrics/ (hard to migrate, ping @MarkTraceur, @Gilles)
recommend/ (ping @leila)
edit-analysis/ (already migrated)
language-reportcard/ (already migrated)

migrate to dashiki:

ee-dashboard/ (being migrated already by @HJiang-WMF)
flow-reportcard/ (easy to migrate)
glam-metrics/ (easy)
reportcard/ (pretty easy)

Let's work on killing instances (cleaning up labs proxy config and such) and migrating reportcard at the same time.

Let's hopefully work with owners to move edit dashboards to dashiki.

@Tbayer FYI
I don't see any problem with it at this point. I haven't looked at it in at least 6 months and new PM hasn't been told about it.

@schana can you check T146308#2677422 and see if, as far as you know, we care about recommend/ being killed?

@leila I was unaware that the dashboard even existed. I have no objections to it being killed.

@schana, thanks.

@Milimetric please feel free to kill recommend/. Thanks for checking with us. :)

Please make sure to archive the dashboards with some JavaScript-capable system. They are often referenced in discussions which would become meaningless.

The dashboards that are to be migrated have been so, there have been some dashboards that we have deleted. notable exception is the reportcard, we need to migrate that one but we have not started that yet.

Yes, the dashboards which need to be archived and preserved are those which don't get migrated.

@Nemo_bis : sorry but we cannot possibly do that as it would equal maintaining them alive, you can see the list above that the dashboards killed were of no interest to their owners/had no updated data/had testing data.

@Nemo_bis: do you have specific examples of dashboards that are used in conversation but not migrated? I'd like to make sure the migration is complete, and that we only delete dashboards that are no longer used.

@Andrew pinged me in chat about this for an update. Marcel is currently working on T156388 which will get us the only data still unique to the dashboards on limn1. So technically limn1 is still useful until that task and a few following ones are taken care of.

However, if you need to kill it, if that makes your lives at all even a little bit easier, please feel free to kill it with extreme prejudice. If anybody is saddened by this, I will personally counsel them through it. (Office Space printer scene, worth a re-watch when we bury this thing)

Thanks for the update. It's fine with me if the instance lives on into March, as long as I know someone is on the case and y'all are aware that 3/31 is a hard deadline.

Work will be completed by end of month by the time instance is turned off.

no worries either way, because the instance hasn't been updated in 6 months and only one person even noticed.

@Milimetric @Nuria I propose we shut this down today or tomorrow just to make sure you guys don't figure out you need something from it before the 3/31 deadline :) (It's currently 1 of 3 remaining)
