Description

malbec is running with tmpfs for a long time to avoid the HDD as a bottleneck. This however can cause problems if many "big" jobs are running the same time since it could saturate the RAM/tmpfs pretty quickly (therefore the inital bug, see blow). However we're also running qa-power8-5 for a long time from spinning-disks now and don't see major problems so the idea is to switch malbec back to have its pool-directories written on the build-in HDDs instead of tmpfs.

Guess this would mainly involve modifying salt (to remove tmpfs) and adjust malbec to mount its HDD instead (mkfs, fstab-entry).

We could reduce the number of workers to 3, and see if it improves the situation, pool for workers is mounted on tmpfs for malbec

Overall we seem to have less issues with this since we moved some jobs from malbec to other machines. More important to followup I find #30595
