The flow team is about to start tying into the analytics infrastructure. As a part of this we need to have the flowdb from X1 replicated to stat1003.
|operations/puppet : production||Monitor x1 replication on dbstore hosts|
|operations/puppet : production||Addind needed files to setup research access to a flow replica|
Clarification: currently stat1003 can access x1-analytics-slave, but it would be nice to have replication of that db to analytics-store so that flow data can be joined with event logging data. Erik / Flow folks, please correct me if this is a bad assumption. From the couple of example queries you guys told me, this sounded necessary.
This is not a trivial task.
I would like to put some order on all the production and analytics db boxes so that we can provide you a quality service. There is some incoming hardware in production plus some logical reorganization pending on flow servers, so I would like to delay this request for a bit while we refactor the internal architecture.
Are you ok to wait while we make a plan ourselves? That hopefully would mean faster resources for you guys.
I've added flowdb to analytics-store. I cannot guarantee how well it will work, x1 traffic is very "particular".
Let's assume it is in "beta", and you can give me feedback about how it works (I will also monitor its lag and performance).
I have provided access to the user research, please tell me if that is enough. Test is and I will close the ticket afterwards.
