Project Name: xtools
Type of quota increase requested: CPU/RAM
We are in the process of upgrading XTools to run on PHP 7.2 and Symfony 4.1. The only sane way to do this without downtime is to set up a new instance running on the latest and greatest, make sure everything is working properly, then edit the web proxies to move traffic to the new server. Unfortunately we don't have enough quota to do this. So, I'm asking to temporarily give the xtools project enough quota to perform the migration, then we can delete the old instances and the quota can be reduced back to the norm.
There are two production instances: xtools-prod01 (m1.large), and xtools-prod02 (m1.medium). xtools-dev03 (m1.small) is the new test instance. I'll be deleting xtools-dev02 (m1.small) soon, meaning to perform the migration, we will need our quota to be increased by:
- 5 VCPUs
- 10GB RAM
If we could get up to a week's time to do this, that'd be awesome. That'd allow us to diagnose and fix bugs, and be able to switch traffic back and forth as needed to avoid downtime. We can report back here once we're satisfied everything is stable.
