experiment with a "unified" ATS-BE pool
Open, MediumPublic

Description

Right now, despite being two separate pools, the ATS-BEs for both text and upload are configured identically, and in theory could handle traffic for each other.

The upsides of merging the pools:

  • cache_upload could gain a lot of storage capacity for its large objects
  • cache_text would gain more upstream connection-handling capacity for all its miss/pass traffic

The potential downsides are basically with something going horribly wrong: maybe they start to thrash on objects, or something unforeseen.

The swap of Traffic for Traffic-Icebox in this ticket's set of tags was based on a bulk action for all such tickets that haven't been updated in 6 months or more. This does not imply any human judgement about the validity or importance of the task, and is simply the first step in a larger task cleanup effort. Further manual triage and/or requests for updates will happen this month for all such tickets. For more detail, have a look at the extended explanation on the main page of Traffic-Icebox . Thank you!
