Gather reliability data for the wsexport tool
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


This project has come to a wrap. I know we have Uptime robot and probably other checks in place to ensure the tool is more reliable. This ticket is to gather some concrete data for the work we did. This could include: stats for uptime before and uptime now or number of errors we saw previously versus now or anything else.

This data will be published on the project page.

941 minutes downtime

We're still not perfect, but as you can see it is considerably better than it used to be. Current uptime, at the time of writing (June 20), is at 98.47% over the past 24 hours, 99.2% over the past week, and 99.42% over the past month.

Thanks @MusikAnimal that's great. Lots of our tools suffer from the 1- to 9-minute outages, so if we leave them out we get the following counts of longer ones:

May 1 – May 1526
May 16 – May 312
June 1 – June 153

Which is good. :)

I've been trying to figure out if we can go back further from before we set up UptimeRobot. I've run the access.log through awstats and these are the visit counts:

Month		Hits	Bandwidth
Jan 2018	47,421	21.25 GB
Feb 2018	47,182	21.70 GB
Mar 2018	46,985	26.27 GB
Apr 2018	47,086	19.99 GB
May 2018	43,318	19.48 GB
Jun 2018	40,456	17.62 GB
Jul 2018	51,929	20.21 GB
Aug 2018	44,517	37.38 GB
Sep 2018	41,581	19.11 GB
Oct 2018	54,756	25.44 GB
Nov 2018	54,341	22.52 GB
Dec 2018	39,691	17.04 GB
Jan 2019	64,419	31.84 GB
Feb 2019	69,244	35.14 GB
Mar 2019	69,184	40.97 GB
Apr 2019	84,636	39.20 GB
May 2019	94,737	48.90 GB

Which shows that at least traffic has increased recently.

But weirdly the 'HTTP Status Codes' report is empty for 2019, whereas it contains this for 2018:

404    Document Not Found            2,981       93.7 %      11.48 MB
500    Internal server Error           130        4 %        11.17 KB
301    Moved permanently (redirect)     64        2 %         0
206    Partial Content                   2        0 %       640.00 KB
400    Bad Request                       2        0 %       698 Bytes

But anyway there seems to be something strange going on with access.log in general; I've opened T226239: access.log is not being written for wsexport.

Oh, I think awstats only generates for completed years and months. So the 50x error counts are as follows, for completed months this year:

2019-01130 (4%)0 (0%)
2019-02115 (3.8%)7 (0.2%)
2019-0357 (1.8%)40 (1.2%)
2019-04119 (3.3%)435 (12.3%)
2019-05358 (3.4%)464 (4.5%)

The percentages are of the total number of non-200 responses, excluding favicon 404s. So not super useful. :)

Seems weird that there weren't any 502s in 2018. Maybe things were logged differently?

Thanks @MusikAnimal and @Samwilson. That's good data to share. I'll update the project page. :)
