We've been talking about retiring smolt and replacing it with a
sinkhole that accepts data (so older installs don't cause long
timeouts when attempting to send a smolt profile) for a while now.
puiterwijk wrote the files that we'd need to implement this a few
weeks ago. I've now got those changes we'll need into a patch against
our puppet repo.
The changes touch the smolt server (value01) which is not covered by
this freeze and also the proxies which are.
Well, value03/04 in production...
In addition, I've got a
second patch that updates nagios to no longer check smolt. The
changes to main smolt are applied in stg and seem to work well.
(Have tried smoltSendProfile against the stg server and the links you
are given for public profiles)
Can I get a +1 to apply these changes?
Do we also want to link to the smolt retirement wiki page?
(which has some additional info that might head off complaints)
Note after freeze we can also:
* Turn off the smolt wiki -- the changes on the proxy should mean it
doesn't see any more traffic but we should be able to stop it from
running as well.
* Turn off backups of the smolt db
* Look into making the last smolt db dump available for people who are
interested in the data.
* Remove the smolt db (and the smolt mediawiki db) from our mysql
All sounds good.
