I thought the machine would not live in a server room but apparently I was wrong. is the racktables entry. I created

Thanks to gschlotter the machine is back. He reinstalled it – multiple times as we misunderstood regarding requirements – but we are back with a transactional server. Current setup:

transactional-update pkg in openQA-worker htop gdb os-autoinst-distri-opensuse-deps
chown -R _openqa-worker /var/lib/openqa/{cache,pool}
systemctl enable --now openqa-worker-cacheservice openqa-worker-cacheservice-minion openqa-worker@1

cat /proc/mdstat

As the machine has a big but slow HDD but pretty much RAM I think previously we used a ramdisk for the openQA worker pool, e.g. we could do echo 'tmpfs /var/lib/openqa/pool tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec,nodiratime,size=64G 0 0' >> /etc/fstab but since we want to use the same filesystem for cache+pool I don't see this working out. For now I will configure the machine without ramdisk and without use of the HDD with a single worker instance as there is currently 40GB free.

EDIT: 2020-02-11: … which was obviously a bad idea because we need another 50GB by default for caching. I now configured /dev/sda1 with an ext4 that I mounted on /var/lib/openqa.

The worker instance imagetester:1 executed jobs just fine over the past day. Enabled a second worker instance.
