Giftpflanze closed T156981: Find a solution for tools-exec-gift on Trusty as Resolved.

< yuvipanda> !log tools set complex_values slots=300,release=trusty for tools-exec-gift-trusty-01.tools.eqiad.wmflabs
This seems to have done the trick, thank you!
@chasemp The old instance can be cleaned up now.

Giftpflanze added a comment to T156981: Find a solution for tools-exec-gift on Trusty.

Killing the Precise instance (and defaulting to Trusty) shouldn't pose a problem. I switched my code to Trusty (I didn't even know anymore that I had to hardcode that) and I will test it with the next regular run starting on the 1st of March. (Also, I'm kinda swamped with school stuff but I'm glad to have found a minute for this.)

< annika> chasemp: […] I guess you mean: You will provide a trusty exec node with an appropriate queue? And I will just use that instead of the current one?
< chasemp> annika: basically, a second trusty node in the same queue for you to migrate to
< annika> that would be fine

Considering my earlier comment (bigram instance), the needed numbers would be 1+8=9 cores and 2+36=38GB. But otherwise you're right. And I actually planned to do the transition without additional temporary resources. But it surely would give us more security.

We need more RAM for data processing. We are not aware of other possibilities. Afais, "bigram" has even more RAM, so we'd like to have enough room for 1 small and 1 bigram instance.

Giftpflanze added a comment to T122659: Create an algorithm to accurately determine if a webpage is dead.

Especially interesting portions are:
dwllib.tcl, proc check_curl*: curl -gLksm200 -A $user_agent -w %{http_code} -o /dev/null $url
List of good status codes: 200 201 202 206 226 229 301 302 304 401 412 503 507 999 (and the next 4 lines)
The file "exceptions" contains tcl [string match] url patterns mostly of sites that don't want to be tested/crawled (they may have a tool labs block). This means that you cannot determine if they're dead or not. (I test with a throttling of 1 second, there may be other methods that prevent blocking.)

Giftpflanze added a comment to T112881: Create Cyberbot Project on Labs.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bots/Requests_for_approval/Cyberbot_II_5: "Future feature requests, such as detecting unmarked dead links, should be made under a subsequent BRFA." From that I conclude that the workload won't be overlapping with my efforts. What is consuming the resources is probably keeping all data in memory instead of writing it to disk (which should be preferable I guess?). A point which concerns me, is that the bot traverses over the complete article namespace via the API (for template transclusion and article text), which should better be done via the DB and/or dumps.
