rack and setup restbase production cluster in eqiad
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The servers have arrived. They are 10G server and will need to go into those assigned racks. Gabriel stated the servers need to be spread out across rows, and ideally racks. I will rack in A5/C8 and D8. The 2 servers that will go in A5 will not be connected until after we move the memcache servers to C8. (

  • Debian Jessie
  • Partitioning:
    • small (~20G RAID-1) partition for /
    • bulk of SSDs as RAID-0 on top of LVM vg

We do not have a name for these yet. The bios doesn't seem to want to accept the 10G card as a boot device

name wise let's go with restbase unless someone has better ideas

@Cmjohnson, @RobH: How is this going? Do you think the first three boxes will be ready by the end of this week?

I would actually call them something that's descriptive of the hardware characteristics, for e.g. 'ssd', 'storage' or 'dsc'. RESTBase might not even run on these boxes in the longer term. Only Cassandra (or whatever other storage we use) would remain.

Quick status update: Four of the six boxes are online already & are being imaged by @fgiunchedi. Racking of the last two ones depends on memcached servers being shuffled around, but that's no problem as we can start with four boxes.

Update, if all goes according to plan the memcached boxes should be moved early next week and the remaining 2 will setup by the end of next week.

pending renames in racktables too, only asset name now

restbase1001 and restbase1002 have been setup and are ready to be installed. dhcp file was udpated with MAC address's from 10G NIC.

Once @fgiunchedi finishes install please close ticket. Worth noting is the access switch still needs redundant power which will take place on Monday 2/23.

restbase1002 installed, pending restbase1001

restbase1001 done, resolving. restbase1006 controller issues are tracked in T89639
