Description

When using an instance from our internal SUSE OpenStack Cloud (see https://engcloud.prv.suse.net/auth/login/?next=/project/instances/03d320f0-bfce-4b26-9ac4-cfbcb254dae6/) those instances have limited network bandwitch (see https://wiki.microfocus.net/index.php?title=SUSE/ECP#Network_latency) which causes a download of an ISO or qcow2 to last a whole day, and then the worker has to download it back.

For the tests it is possible to have them on a separate server different from the webui (see CACHEDIRECTORY + rsync configuration in /etc/openqa/workers.ini)

It would be helpful to configure the worker to download the assets from a different server with better network bandwidth.

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: Workers can get assets from a different server than the webui.
  • AC2: It is possible to configure in /etc/openqa/workers.ini where to get the assets from

I guess the idea for the provo engineering cloud was to use federation. This topic was mainly worked on by szarate. You could ask him. IMHO a duplicate of #25278

  • Description updated (diff)

Federation would be a possible solution to "showing results on the SOC instance while running it (webui+worker) on an local openQA instance".

But the problem of the bandwidth is even mentioned by foursixnine as impediment (see poo#25278#note-7), so I dont think a federation solves my problem.

Since this would require a different solution, I don't consider this a duplicate.

This is basically asking for a proxy host between webui and worker, no?

yes, a proxy.
