Description

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: openqa.suse.de has access to at least one powerVM production worker (physical machine)
  • AC2: Production worker is not used for development

Tasks

  • Clarify hardware situation (which machines to use?)
    • potential points of contact: dheidler, nsinger, zluo, coolo, ihno, marita, jloeser
    • According to #37372#note-15 there is a machine ready. That machine should be removed from orthos so that we can dedicate it to OSD
  • Add worker config in salt recipes
  • Ensure the setup is stable, e.g. the worker survives at least two builds of SLE with jobs executed on this machine

I would say, that now the issue should looks like 'poverVM development worker'.

I've discussed the task with Santiago and he told me, that tools team already decided to salt 'grenage' to Production.

@mgriessmeier According to the latest comment by @oorlov you "talked to ihno". Can you track this ticket or how should we proceed with the ticket?

got reply from Toni:

Hi Matthias & Nick,

ich hab eine LPAR (vugava-1.arch.suse.de) für Euch erstellt, sie läuft
auf vugava.arch.suse.de. Musste aber die die CPS aufteilen, Eure hat 4
virtuelle mit je 2,33 GHz, 4GB Speicher und 40GB HDD. Sollte es nicht
ausreichen, erstelle ich Euch eine auf Vilana, da müssen wir allerdings
mit dem Haris reden.

Die Maschine hab ich in Orthos eingetragen und auf aeisner
übergangsweise reserviert. Sollte sie aus Orthos raus müssen, oder auf
einen von Euch resaviert werden sollen, sagt bitte den Thomas R.
bescheid, bin erst wieder Montag im Haus.

Nick can proceed from here, reassigning

@nicksinger I leave it to your professional opinion regarding the state of monitoring and integration of the existing workers if we are ready yet to bring in more workers. E.g. we would make sure our workers are better monitored first before continuing here.

I'll take that as a "yes, we should wait for proper monitoring first".

We already have grenache on OSD for whatever reason: https://openqa.suse.de/admin/workers/1103
I couldn't find any traces in salt so I guess its yet another worker hotpatched into OSD.

I'll wait until somebody starts whining again about missing resources with power.

Yes, that's the point of this ticket. We have grenache as an "spvm" worker in osd but it has only been added manually. It is used for development as well and most likely something will break sometime in the future. I do not even know if any updates are installed.

I'll wait until somebody starts whining again about missing resources with power.

Either that or at best when "monitoring" is in place for at least the s390x and aarch64 and ppc64le-kvm workers we already have in production, agreed? Please link the according monitoring ticket(s) as blocking ones. I will communicate the state in the QA SLE coordination meeting as well.

adjusting based on my assumption when we would have monitoring for all existing production workers in place and when we would be able to have this ticket finished covering the machine mentioned in #37372#note-15

I understood that this is seen as "blocked" by the monitoring work where we need to invest. So I will assign this ticket to myself to find the blockers first.

Just want to highlight this comment from oorlov once more.

Kind of blocks the powerVM shared dev worker so therefore I'll get it out of our way =)

No bigger problems observed and it survived at least two builds. Guess we're done here \o/
