[tools] Worker configuration to get assets from a different server than the webui
|Target version:||QA - future|
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.
- 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

- 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.
