Since we are now using a Gutter pool, it would be great to set up a controlled outage to verify the following:
- since mc-gp100[1-3] (the gutter pool hosts) are running Buster with Memcached 1.5.x, it would be great to see if settings are ok and if it behaves as we expect (memcached changes a lot from our version, 1.4.x, to 1.5.x)
- mcrouter's behavior during a long outage
The idea is to verify that our infrastructure is now resilient to shards going down without live testing it on a Sunday morning :)
If this test goes as expected, we could think about the re-image of one memcached shard to Buster!
