Description

Motivation

#97763 implemented triggers on finished jobs via minion_task_triggers/on_job_done=. This would be great to enable by default, especially since currently no clean-up will ever be performed by default.

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: Use cleanup triggers on finished jobs by default

Suggestions

  • Consider removing the dependency on the systemd timer and ensure that production instances still run cleanup after the update
    • Research how to properly communicate these changes based on systemd files, if no better way is found, just do it and tell our usual users, e.g. ping in pull request -> #101602
  • Get familiar with timers and triggers
  • Test the impact on performance, e.g. trigger 1k tiny jobs which trigger cleanup on done
  • Ensure that the df-check is enabled along with enabling the config
  • Add a default config for minion_task_triggers/on_job_done= in etc/openqa/openqa.ini (not in code so that existing instances are not changed)
  • Ensure that the configured cleanup jobs cover the same as the existing systemd timer

Discussed during estimation meeting 2021-10-28. mkittler and kraih are not sure if the new default would be that beneficial. Maybe there is still a too big overhead when triggering the cleanup events. We could run the "test" of about 1k jobs first to gather some performance data. Another possible test: Trigger cleanup times on o3+osd more frequently.

Let's keep it on hold until we come to new conclusions
