Request increased quota for globaleducation Cloud VPS project (multi-node)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Project Name: globaleducation
Type of quota increase requested: cpu / ram / instance count
Reason: @Nate_Berkopec and I are working on moving outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org to a multi-node configuration that will let it keep up with its high level of usage (and hopefully enable some of the features that Wiki Education Dashboard uses but are disabled for outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org due to resources constraints). We currently anticipate using 21 cores across 5 instances for the production site (plus one for keeping database backups), but we'll need more than that during the transition period while we're testing out our Nomad system for provisioning and coordinating nodes.

Could you please detail how much RAM and CPU you would need in your quota?

You also mention a transition period. Could you elaborate on that? Would you need a temporal quota bump and then you will be back to a more "reduced" quota?

14 instances, 40 CPU, 80 RAM

Assuming that moving to the new setup goes smoothly, we'll free up the 16 CPU / 32 RAM of the current VMs, so we could probably reduce it as low as 24/48 afterwards, although having a little bit of spare capacity for future work is convenient. I'd like to keep a 'reduced' quota of 30/60 afterwards if that's okay.

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-cloud) [2021-04-15T09:40:39Z] <arturo> bumping quota: cores 20 -> 40, ram 40G -> 80G, instances 8 -> 14 (T279956)

Done!

Please, let us know when you free the resources, so we can reduce the quota :-)
