MozMEAO SRE Status Report - 6/6/2017
Here’s what happened on the MozMEAO SRE team from May 30th - June 6th.
Scale down Deis 1 clusters
Now that bedrock, nucleus, surveillance, and viewsourceconf have been deployed to Kubernetes, we scaled down our Portland Deis 1 cluster from 10 nodes to 6 to save on AWS costs. Additionally, Deis 1 ELB’s for surveillance, viewsourceconf, and nucleus have been decommissioned.
Cloudflare to Datadog service running in Kubernetes
The Cloudflare to Datadog service that was previously running in Deis 1 is now running in Kubernetes. Additionally, an external contributor has submitted a pull request to add this service to the Kubernetes charts repo. The PR looks to be abandoned, so it may be closed without being merged within a few days. If this happens, we’ll open a new PR with any requested changed from the current PR.
We’ve started work on provisioning Cloudfront, a global content delivery network service, for our bedrock staging environment. Once we iron out the wrinkles with bedrock stage, we’ll continue on to bedrock prod.
Preparing to move basket.mozilla.org to Kubernetes
Work has started to move Basket to Kubernetes.
Evaluation of Kubewatch
We tried Kubewatch, a service to watch Kubernetes events and report them to Slack. However, this doesn’t seem like the right tool for us, as it currently doesn’t allow us to filter the many notifications that we get.
We are waiting on some internal communications before moving forward.
