quick clarification on this: up till now, we've always had aarch64 and
ppc64 tests running only on the staging instance, prod has always been
only x86_64. I've been sort of planning to move at least aarch64 to
production for a while now, but I've been a bit reluctant because we
still seem to hit a lot of flakes there (and the extremely long-
is still a
big problem in aarch64 tests, and I still can't get any headway on
getting that fixed).
Right now it seems we won't have a staging instance (we may rename the
second instance to 'test' or something, by the by, because 'staging' is
a bad name for it as it's not really like other 'staging' things in
infra) for a bit because we're running on a fairly minimal set of
hardware in the new DC for now.
So upshot is I'm kinda still unsure about how to proceed with that part
of things. I'll talk to Kevin and Smooge tomorrow about exactly when
we're likely to get a) the second server instance and b) the other
worker hosts, and try to come up with a plan.
so for now we just have the new prod instance operational and it's only
running x86_64 tests (on a single worker host for now). it's working
more or less fully, but right at this minute quite a lot of tests are
failing due to a 'russian roulette' sort of problem (there are four
possible IPs that mirrors.fedoraproject.org
can resolve to from inside
the new DC, and it seems that from the new worker host, two of them
work and two of them don't).
thanks to nirik and smooge for all their hard work, and sorry for the
spurious test failures, I'll try to get that sorted ASAP.
