Performance Testing Cluster
Closed, DuplicatePublic



We don't have a place that is consistent enough to test performance related changes, other than on production. We need a cluster, virtualized or bare-metal (TBD), that we can use to run performance tests against.

This cluster could (probably) also be used to do nightly testing that would get us closer to T281: True code pipeline.


  1. Set up a parallel OpenStack cluster that is independent of WMF Labs infrastructure
    1. This could probably "simply" reuse our Beta Cluster puppet configs
  2. Set up a cluster of real hardware

@greg I don't think we are in a position to create and maintain a performance testing cluster. I am not sure what was the original discussion back in September 2014, but potentially if one has such a need it is probably easier to do the performance test on a slice of the production cluster.

Probably safe to decline this task for now.

Setting to Stalled, it's probably something that will come up again, but you're right, not on the plan for now.
