Migrate beta cluster Swift cluster from Trusty to Jessie
Closed, ResolvedPublic


On beta, the Swift cluster is using Ubuntu Trusty and should be migrated to Debian Jessie. The three instances are:


Note the backend instances use m1.xlarge flavor (8 CPUs, 16G RAM and 160G disk). Can probably switch to m1.large instead (4 CPUs, 8G RAM and 80G disk) which should fit.

Indeed we'll have to do this also because production will no longer have trusty "soon" (cfr T162609). I'll start with provisioning a jessie ms-fe since that's the easiest and will allow us to test swift 2.10 too.

@hashar for ms-be the used ram seems in the order of ~12GB so m1.large would be tight. I'll go with m1.xlarge for now, we can revisit if resources get tighter

ms-be0[34] and ms-fe02 are up and running with swift 2.10, next steps:

  • add new backends to the deployment-prep ring in operations/software/swift-ring.git at e.g. weight 300 and wait for rebalance
  • increase new backend weights to 1000 and rebalance
  • decrease old backend weights to 300 / rebalance / to 0 / rebalance
  • point mediawiki to deployment-ms-fe02
  • deprovision all old trusty machines

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-releng) [2017-04-26T15:24:40Z] <godog> add new deployment-ms-be0[34] backends to swift in deployment-prep - T162247

For reference, switching mw to talk to deployment-ms-fe02 the configuration is here: https://horizon.wikimedia.org/project/prefixpuppet/?tab=prefix_puppet__puppet-deployment-cache-upload for the varnish bits and here https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Hiera:Deployment-prep for swift

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-releng) [2017-05-02T09:41:37Z] <godog> flip deployment-cache-upload04 to deployment-ms-fe02 - T162247

Also private/PrivateSettings.php needed a change on deployment-tin to pick up deployment-ms02

I'm going to pause (but not terminate) old deployment-ms trusty hosts since they should be completely decomissioned now. Will terminate say next week if no issues come up.
