Grow Mozilla

No voice update this week

Help us build a history of Mozilla told by Mozillians. Please share your memories about this Mozilla milestone:

60 Seconds with Mozilla IT

Speaker Location: Corey Shields via Vidyo (no screen share)

  • 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
    • 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
  • Questions? –> #it and #desktop
