Hey folks, just a quick openQA status update: both staging and prod are
now running a recent git master build of openQA and os-autoinst (the
-24 and -7 builds in the recently-submitted update). Also, qa14.qa has
been added to prod as an extra worker box; it's currently hosting 10
workers, just over doubling our test capacity (wahay). It was used for
the 20160415 Rawhide tests and they seemed to go fine, we'll keep an
eye on things for the next few days.
Tim is hoping to free up another of those boxes for use as a worker
soon; we could give both 'big iron' boxes to prod (=20 workers) and
give all three old worker boxes to stg (=6 workers), or split it up
some other way (e.g. give both servers one 'big iron' box and give all
the old boxes to prod, which would be a 16/10 split). (It *is* possible
to have one box act as a worker host for two openQA servers, but it
could get tricky if the tests get out of sync between the two hosts, as
sometimes happens, as the worker box just has one mount point of tests,
so it's probably best to stick with each worker host box being
dedicated to a server).
We could also look at going to single-CPU VMs; this is how SUSE runs,
apparently. We ought to be able to up the worker count considerably if
we do that.
