tl;dr I want to change **all** storage types in AWS from gp2 to gp3 next week.
The recent Change proposal
brought to my attention that gp3 is actually faster and cheaper than gp2. The comparision is as follows:
* $0.10 per GB-month
* IOPS: 100 IOPB, burstable to 3000 IOPS
* Throughput: Throughput limit is between 128 MiB/s and 250 MiB/s, depending on the volume size.
* IOPS: 3000 for free, addional IOPS can be bought
* Throughput 125 MiB/s for free, addional throughput can be bought
For more information see
We have about 150 volumes of gp2 type in AWS. Copr is the most prominent user, but there are other: libravatar, taiga,
TF, and other...
The type of the storage can be changed on the fly - even for attached and volumes in-use. I already tried that with my
private server. Unless somebody will have objections I plan to change volume types to gp3 for Copr next week and for all
other services in week following Easter.
I also modified fedimg template to allow gp3
If you have scripts outside of fedora-infra/ansible to provision instances that uses gp2 for volumes, it will be great
if you can move it to gp3.
Have a strange f38 i686 buildroot setup failure in koji
DEBUG util.py:442: Error unpacking rpm package shadow-utils-2:4.13-6.fc38.i686
DEBUG util.py:444: error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/bin/newgidmap;649d86fa: cpio: cap_set_file failed - Value too large for defined data type
DEBUG util.py:444: error: shadow-utils-2:4.13-6.fc38.i686: install failed
While other i686 builds seems to be working OK e.g. (pipewire-0.3.72-2.fc38.src.rpm, i686)
The only meaning full difference might be buildvm vs buildhw for the builder instance

Sorry, I don't know if it's the correct place to ask, My laptop I have
installed Fedora 18 and I see the sysctl file-max parameter has a very high
sysctl -a | grep file
fs.file-max = 9223372036854775807
fs.file-nr = 19808 0 9223372036854775807
