we want to move the IRC (client) service VM away from textile.

While at it, we want to adapt the disk sizes somewhat as we don't do overcommit/lazy-alloc on gnt-fsn.

new host: chives.tpo.

also, clarify what the status of the metrics bot is.

comment:2 Changed 13 months ago by weasel

  • Chives is up
  • Limits raised for its addresses on OFTC servers
  • added a pointer to chives to iranicum's motd
  • if necessary, we'll have to send email to users at some point

i added chives to the VM spreadsheet as it was missing from the cluster documentation.

this actually brings the cluster into over-provisionning already, unfortunately. it seems we might need a second pair of nodes in that cluster before the year is up...

i pinged nickm and cohosh on irc today, and helped asn migrate. i also ping'd nima in a "write" message. gk, cohosh, asn and more have now migrated. so this is progressing well.

the following users still have screen sessions, actually. i pinged each one over IRC today:

# ps -e -o user:256,comm | grep screen | cut -f1 -d' ' | sort -u

i get no response from those folks, so i'll start the decom process. shutdown scheduled in 10 minutes, disabled autostart.

followed the host retirement checklist:

  1. [x] warn users - everyone but nima and erinn have migrated now
  2. [x] machine shutdown
  3. [x] virsh undefine $host: Domain iranicum.torproject.org has been undefined
  4. [x] scheduled data wipe with a longer delay (30 days instead of 7) because of vacations: did cd /srv/vmstore ; mv iranicum.torproject.org OLD/iranicum.torproject.org; echo rm -rf /srv/vmstore/OLD/iranicum.torproject.org/ | at now + 30 days
  5. [x] removed from LDAP

  9. [x] cleaned host in tor-passwords
  10. [x] removed from wiki and spreadsheet
  11. [x] removed from nagios
  12. [x] scheduled backup removal another 30 extra days off: echo rm -rf /srv/backups/bacula/iranicum.torproject.org-OLD/ | at now + 60 days
  13. [x] N/A (nothing in letsencrypt)
  14. [x] N/A (upstream, we own the host)
  15. [x] N/A (mail, no mail handling)

... note that I gave the data an extra 30 days on the host (textile) and 30 days from that (so 60 days from now) on the backup server.

in other words:

  1. iranicum, the old IRC server, is now officially shutdown and retired
  2. its data will be removed from the host in 30 days
  3. its backups will be removed from the backup server in 60 days

RIP, it served us well!
