Currently we run 7 round-the-clock instances of proxy-go:

  1. snowflake-proxy-restartless
  2. snowflake-proxy-17h
  3. snowflake-proxy-23h
  4. snowflake-proxy-29h
  5. snowflake-proxy-standalone-17h
  6. snowflake-proxy-standalone-23h
  7. snowflake-proxy-standalone-29h

snowflake-proxy-restartless is an experiment for #25688, so put it aside. Of the remaining 6, the only difference is what broker they correspond with:

  • 3 for (the old App Engine–bound broker)
  • 3 for (the current standalone broker)

We fully switched away from the App Engine broker 10 months ago. Nothing in the source code refers to any longer. So I propose we stop running the 3 instances that use the old App Engine broker:

  • snowflake-proxy-17h
  • snowflake-proxy-23h
  • snowflake-proxy-29h

I deleted the 3 instances at about 2019-02-07 23:45:00 and noted the change at MetricsTimeline. This is what I did:

sv stop snowflake-proxy-{17h,23h,29h}
rm -vr /etc/service/snowflake-proxy-{17h,23h,29h} /etc/runit/snowflake-proxy-{17h,23h,29h}
