60 Seconds with Mozilla IT – April 29

From the April 29 weekly Project Meeting:
Redundant-hg

  • hg push server had an issue last week, failover to a redundant push node happened with little impact

    Details: the way hg is setup there is a single server for changes over ssh (pushes) and a whole pool of servers for consumption through http. This single server has a passive replica that we’ve never had to rely on before last week. Failover to the backup node worked fine as did failing back to the primary node when it was fixed.

  • Mozilla is now contributing to pool.ntp.org

    We make use of GPS based time servers in our primary data centers to ensure that our infrastructure is as close to being in sync as possible. These servers are now contributing back to the greater Internet community
