We switched the the Snowflake broker to an IPv6-capable host in comment:16:ticket:29258. Once it's established, we need to shut down the old one.

I propose to do the shutdown on or before 2019-12-01.

I think cohosh wanted to take some special care with the metrics log from the old broker.

I stopped the snowflake-broker process on the non-IPv6 broker at 2020-01-02 17:12:00. I copied its logs to the new broker into the following directories, with a README:

  • /var/log/snowflake-broker.pre-29258/
  • /home/snowflake-broker/metrics.log.pre-29258/

My plan is to wipe the disk and unallocate the VM after a few days. Until then, we have the option of turning it back on, in case something unanticipated goes wrong with it turned off.

I've now turned off the old broker. I haven't been able to delete the VM yet; the cause may be a problem with I've sent in a support request for it.

Support was able to delete the VPS for me.
