Find a way to remove non-replicated tables from ToolsDB
Open, MediumPublic


There are four databases that are exempt from replication because they have historically caused problems with load and replication on ToolsDB (T127164: Some databases cannot be backed up/replicated on toolsdb). This is due to database size and level of change frequency and has been documented here

The goal here is to find a solution to remove the restriction of non-replicated data from the ToolsDB service in order to improve service to all users by allowing easier failover and maintenance.
