Metrics

All Metrics infrastructure moving dtaacenters tomorrow, Tuesday April 17th.

This move will be very disrupting, and while we are going to attempt to have everything up and running again as quickly as possible, there are a lot of configuration changes that need to happen during this move that could take time to be completed. At the end of this process however, we will have a much better environment that will allow us to rapidly improve several pieces such as building out more staging environments and enable better replication/failover in the future.

The impact for various teams is as follows:

metrics.mozilla.com website and all dashboards will be unavailable for one to two days

Nightly and weekly Metrics e-mail reports will not be delivered on Tuesday and possibly Wednesday.

Exports of ADI data to AMO & Socorro will not be delivered Tuesday and possibly Wednesday. After the move is completed, we will backfill data and export the missing data.

Log file collection / processing will be delayed during the migration. IT has worked hard to ensure we have a new collection server waiting for our arrival in the new datacenter, so we believe that we will be able to quickly get started on backprocessing. Depending on how long the migration itself takes, it could take up to four days for us to finish backprocessing (at the same time we are processing new data).

Test Pilot data submissions will not be accepted during the migration. Test Pilot has a client-side retry mechanism in it that will cause the clients to attempt to submit that data at a later time so we do not expect any data loss.

Telemetry data submissions will not be accepted during the migration. Telemetry does not have a client-side retry mechanism, so there will be an unrecoverable gap in data for the duration of the downtime. We will be making restoration of this service our top priority. We were hoping to be able to migrate this service ahead of everything else, but the hardware for the new cluster was not available in time due to missing parts. :/

Buildbot log collection will be delayed during the migration. We will work with that team to backfill any missing data after the migration is complete.

Bugzilla analysis datawarehouse will not be available during the migration. This has *no* impact on the normal operation of bugzilla.mozilla.org so unless you know specifically what this is, don’t worry about it. :)

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail metrics@mozilla.com.
