  • Global load balancing in place for mozilla.com/org
    • Dropped response time for many Europe sites from ~5 sec to .5 sec
    • Taking 20-25 mb/s, approx 40-50% or traffic
  • Community giving server has shipped to NL
  • Targeting 2/19 to takeover tier 1 support of tinderboxen
  • Webtools migration completed
  • DNS migration completed


  • Working with IT on the Tinderbox support process; we're almost ready to switch over, but the big change will be:
    • Tinderboxen will be on three tiers; the tiers will be posted on the Build:Farm page.
      • Tier 1: 24-hour, on-call support
      • Tier 2: Business hours support
      • Tier 3: All other Tinderboxen
    • Because of this, if there are Tinderbox failures, we need to track them via bugs, as opposed to the myriad of ways we've done it in the past (walking into #build, email, etc.) So, we'll be asking everyone to file bugs for tracking Tinderbox outage issues.
  • Clobber support has now been rolled out and is supported, so if you need builds clobbered, please follow the instructions that are posted I will be posting to the wiki.
    • To help, the versions and branches of each configs for each tinderbox build is printed in the tinderbox log.
    • There are a couple of machines that won't be clobbered when clobbers are requested; this is due to a tinderbox deficiency; these machines will be noted on the Build:Farm pages, and we'll be fixing them.
  • Coop is continuing to work on getting authentication/IDs setup for individual projects. Seamonkey, Camino, Lightning/Sunbird, Firefox, and Thunderbird build people should expect to hear from him in the next couple of weeks.
  • As part of this, we're finally getting project-specific Macs out to the community network; ETA is 21 Feb; see Bug 327092
