DB Upgrade complete



With the exception cacti (I'll grab it tomorrow), all databases are now running off of db2. The migration went off very well (with one exception below). The total outage lasted about 30 minutes longer than expected though all services (except for koji) were only down for a few minutes. For those that aren't familiar, this upgrade was for both mysql and postgresql:

mysql-server-3.23.58-1 -> mysql-server-5.0.22-2.1
postgresql-server-7.4.6-2.EL3 -> postgresql-server-8.1.9-1.el5

Considering all of the stuff that could have gone wrong, I'm pretty happy. As always with these things keep your eyes open for any strange issues that may pop up. Right now though all sites seem 'up' and I pushed a koji build through.

The one bump we had was an ignorant mistake on my part. While doing a final trial run on db2 before the upgrade (yesterday afternoon) I mistook a terminal. Long story short a table drop and a rm lead to us losing all accounts changes between 12:00 and 4:00 p.m. central time. (about 4 hours or so). /me smacks forehead. If you guys hear anything regarding that let me know and we'll work something out (so far all I know of is someone had to re-apply for extras-cvs)

So whats left from here? I've updated the ticket:
https://hosted.fedoraproject.org/projects/fedora-infrastructure/ticket/25

Here's a summary:

1) Wait a week for db2 so we know its fine
2) I have a few databases left on db1 that I don't *think* are in use. I'll be sending those to the list soon for verification. If we're not I'll archive and zip them up. They were not migrated to the new box.
3) upgrade db1
4) move mysql services back to db1 (it has less ram then db2. postgresql is hit much heavier so we'll leave it on the box with more processors and ram) 5) Setup a dump from each db to the other. I'd think 4 times / day would be enough, maybe 2 or 3. We'll have to see how much resources it actually takes.


We'll have to do some tweaking. Toshio pointed out that our postgres config is pretty vanilla. There are probably many tweaks we can do to it so I've included it in this email. I'm a MySQL guy so any assistance on the postgres side of things would be appreciated. If you have any questions about our database, our real concern is koji, its the most used database in terms of traffic and it is, by far, our largest.

Here's the cacti graphs

# PostgreSQL configuration file
# -----------------------------
#
# This file consists of lines of the form:
#
#   name = value
#
# (The '=' is optional.) White space may be used. Comments are introduced
# with '#' anywhere on a line. The complete list of option names and
# allowed values can be found in the PostgreSQL documentation. The
# commented-out settings shown in this file represent the default values.
#
# Please note that re-commenting a setting is NOT sufficient to revert it
# to the default value, unless you restart the postmaster.
#
# Any option can also be given as a command line switch to the
# postmaster, e.g. 'postmaster -c log_connections=on'. Some options
# can be changed at run-time with the 'SET' SQL command.
#
# This file is read on postmaster startup and when the postmaster
# receives a SIGHUP. If you edit the file on a running system, you have
# to SIGHUP the postmaster for the changes to take effect, or use
# "pg_ctl reload". Some settings, such as listen_addresses, require
# a postmaster shutdown and restart to take effect.
