Operations Updates

  • there was a period of time where we incorrectly gzipped symbols
    • not a huge concern at the time
    • most of the tools that access them worked around it
    • some manual processes fail on it
    • peter is running a script to correct them
      • script is moving, but slowly
      • python2.7 is behaving differently on centOS vs OSX
    • ted is going to use a different symbol processor on windows
      • this new symbol processor is not robust to the incorrect zipping
  • yesterday we were running two stage webheads accidentally
    • old ec2 instance wasn't correctly terminated
    • caused a bunch of static files errors
  • new monitoring endpoint for checking crash-analysis
    • steaming pile of legacy
    • terrible practices for AWS
    • cannot be upgraded in place
    • users in there tinkering a bunch
    • crons running all the time
    • super manual to update

other business

  • we are closer to fully automating migration
    • not there yet
    • if you have concerns, talk to peterbe
  • alerts on dangerous commits?
    • bot to parse github commit messages and look for a tag that would trigger a mail to stability
    • is there commitment from the team to use it if peterbe builds it?
      • yes. r+
  • could we do a similar one for bug closed?
    • github maintains the bug closer
    • we could turn that off, and have leeroybot read when a bug lands in a tag and then close
