MarkTraceur reassigned T175602: Check performance after increasing upload limit from MarkTraceur to Ramsey-WMF.

@Ramsey-WMF assigning to you so you can tell me if that's an acceptable assessment of the situation

MarkTraceur added a comment to T175602: Check performance after increasing upload limit.

I just uploaded 490 (small) files locally, and while it was a pain to wait for the file interfaces to load in the details step (because I loaded them all at once), I don't think that's a *huge* issue. For the record it probably took 30-60 minutes to complete the entire process with 490 files and the "copy details" pipeline. I imagine in the case of someone uploading a bunch of files for which they must enter descriptions for each one, it will be a little less painful to wait (because there will be active work to do in the meantime), and the performance problems won't be so troublesome.

MarkTraceur added a comment to T175601: Community consultation on increasing concurrent upload limit.

It is technically possible, yes. As mentioned in the parent bug, the limit is really just a JavaScript variable (that can be changed by the user already), so changing that number based on the user's groups would not be difficult.

OK, now with thumbnails working and my mass-upload complete, looking at the performance dashboards for beta labs, we have a performance hit that isn't too terrible, even with 1000 image uploads over the course of 30-45 minutes. However, imagescaler-01 looks a little ominous:

MarkTraceur added a comment to T174914: UploadCampaign sometimes use old autoAdd configuration.

Hi @JeanFred - I can't think of any reason why this might be happening. The cache should be cleared when the configuration changes. The best explanation that I can come up with is that some users are leaving their UploadWizard pages open, waiting for Wiki Loves Monuments to start, and then uploading images with the old configuration. However, that's not possible, because at least one of the users who uploaded to the category was created *after* the change. So I guess I would like to know a little more about what happened in the upload sessions, though this does seem to be related to the aforementioned issues with template caching...so I guess I get to take another whack at that issue.

MarkTraceur updated subscribers of T166699: Evaluate performance of 3d2png on beta cluster.

As a preliminary result, I just uploaded a few (read: 10-20) files at a time, both smaller files and larger ones, and I didn't see any significant spike on cluster load during the timeframe of my uploads and first thumbnails. Also, all of the thumbnails generated on the first file page load, regardless of file size, up to about 22MB. I am fairly satisfied that we can handle any increased load due to this new filetype, but if we need additional testing via mass uploads through the API, then we can do so! I just need to find a bigger source of test files, since Thingiverse is getting incredibly tedious to use. (I have some thoughts on this)
