Right now koji is sluggish, if we do nothing it continues to remain sluggish
and may hold up composes waiting for a build to finish. It could potentially
use more ram than is available on xen2 and cause it to oom and bring down xen2
and its guests. xen2 has 3gb available so we should be ok.
The first part of the change request will put things back to how they always
were. everything on koji1. the second part will help koji2 perform better,
i had meant to make the change before feature freeze and it crept up on me.
when koji1 is rebuilt I plan to give it 4gb ram also.
Lets try to add more ram, if that doesn't work let us know and I'll +1
this. We should at least make sure to get jesse's input on it, its the
release that would be most affected.
