Project Name: LinkWatcher
Wikitech Usernames of requestors: Beetstra,, Billinghurst
Purpose: running the anti-spam tools ‘linkwatcher’ and ‘coibot’ with their shared, massive anti-spam database
Brief description: The bots run currently on tools. Linkwatcher does not allow other tools to run on the same instance as that slows it down (which is not really acceptable). COIBot runs just fine on an instance. To run them together I think I would need 2.5-3 times the capacity of a current instance of tools. For storage I need (for now) 2 times the current size of the linkwatcher db on tools.
The bots run under perl, the db needs SQL. PHP might (later) be needed for search capabilities.
How soon you are hoping this can be fulfilled: This week. I have time to work on moving the bots from July 10 till beginning of August..
I am not familiar with running a VM so I might need some help. Billinghurst has offered to help and has some experience.
