Dear Bugzilla User,
On September 20th we will be upgrading the hardware and database of the production Red Hat
Bugzilla servers. The upgrade forms part of our Bugzilla Performance Improvement Project.
We expect the hardware upgrade will provide a modest improvement to overall performance
and will enable us to make further improvements in the future; with the enhanced
operational flexibility in the maintenance of the hardware and software platform. In
addition to upgrading the hardware, we will also change the underlying database from MySQL
to PostgreSQL, to further improve performance and handle the increasing workloads that
Both hardware and database upgrades are not intended to change the functionality offered
by the Red Hat Bugzilla user-interface (except the new product widget and the component
widget on such pages as the advanced search page) or the RPC APIs.
An outage, beginning on September 20, 2015, 0:00 UTC and lasting between 10 and 14 hours
is needed to migrate the data from the current (old) system to the new production system
and to verify that everything is working correctly before the new system goes online.
