Request increased quota for wikiwho Cloud VPS project
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Project Name: wikiwho
Type of quota increase requested: CPU/RAM
Reason: The wikiwho project was created following T290768: Request creation of wikiwho VPS project. Once that happened, we had to move the existing https://wikiwho.wmflabs.org proxy (formerly on the commtech project) to the wikiwho project because you can't have an HTTP proxy with the same name as a different VPS project (i.e. T131367). As a result, we had to use some of our quota allotted to us because we need to keep https://wikiwho.wmflabs.org running while the new system is set up.

This request is first to increase our quota to have an additional 2 GB RAM and 4 VCPUs. For the latter, we believe there was an oversight at T290768. 24 CPU cores were requested but only 21 were granted. It may very well be that we don't need this much, but we wanted to match what the current WikiWho stack is exactly to be on the safe side. So if there is a concern on increasing the quota further, we can see how things fly as-is.

Regardless, we noticed Horizon doesn't permit you to create a VPS instance that consumes all the available quota. The biggest "flavor" we're able to select is 16 cores and ~35 GB RAM. Thus, we are making a special request that a single instance be created with all of our allotted CPUs and RAM (24 CPU cores and 122 GB RAM, assuming the aforementioned quota increase is granted). Can this be done? The instance name can be wikiwho-prod01.

Event Timeline

We also need increased quota for volume storage to hold the attribution data, as described at T290768, but we will file a separate task for this.

I've created a g3.cores24.ram122.disk20 flavor which should be visible to wikiwho (sometimes takes a bit of time) and moved the cpu limit to 24.

I'm not clear on if an additional 2 GB RAM and 4 more cpu was the request. Was that the case that you would like a total of 124 GB ram and 28 cpu?

Thanks! It looks now like we only need one additional CPU and 2 GB additional RAM added to our quota in order to create an instance with the g3.cores24.ram122.disk20 flavor. This is because we can't delete the wikiwho-proxy01 instance until after the new system is up and running.

Sounds good. You should now have an extra CPU and 2 GB of RAM for a total of 126GB and 25CPU.
