[Bugzilla-announce-list] Red Hat Bugzilla will be upgraded



Dear Bugzilla User,

On September 20th we will be upgrading the hardware and database of the production Red Hat Bugzilla servers. The upgrade forms part of our Bugzilla Performance Improvement Project.

We expect the hardware upgrade will provide a modest improvement to overall performance and will enable us to make further improvements in the future; with the enhanced operational flexibility in the maintenance of the hardware and software platform. In addition to upgrading the hardware, we will also change the underlying database from MySQL to PostgreSQL, to further improve performance and handle the increasing workloads that Bugzilla imposes.  

Both hardware and database upgrades are not intended to change the functionality offered by the Red Hat Bugzilla user-interface (except the new product widget and the component widget on such pages as the advanced search page) or the RPC APIs.

Outage Timing:

An outage, beginning on September 20, 2015, 0:00 UTC and lasting between 10 and 14 hours is needed to migrate the data from the current (old) system to the new production system and to verify that everything is working correctly before the new system goes online.

Stay Informed:

For more information please refer to the Bugzilla Hardware Upgrade FAQ [1]. If you are not already subscribed to Bugzilla Announcements list, please do so at [2] to receive any further announcements.

Thank you,

The Red Hat Bugzilla Team
