Description

Motivation

See parent #80546 . To be able to scale-up openQA we want to be able to separate recent openQA results (on expensive+fast storage) from older, important openQA results (on slow+cheap storage). With #91782 we have an archiving feature which we can use within osd in conjunction with storage.qa.suse.de

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: results on openQA osd can be automatically archived to /space-slow on osd itself

Suggestions

  • Make all the changes persistent within salt
  • Enable in /etc/openqa/openqa.ini

We should update the ticket to save the archive to /space-slow on OSD instead and save a backup to storage.qa as NetApp storage backing osd is more reliable

Was merged and activated. Trying to see on https://openqa.suse.de/minion/jobs?task=limit_results_and_logs how it behaves.

Updated by okurz over 2 years ago

https://openqa.suse.de/minion/jobs?task=archive_job_results shows quite some success. Multiple jobs have been successfully moved to the archive, e.g. https://openqa.suse.de/tests/7314117 . In https://monitor.qa.suse.de/d/WebuiDb/webui-summary?viewPanel=74&orgId=1&from=1639650488173&to=1639727886018 we can see that the usage of the results partition reduced from 80% to currently 67% and "space-slow" which holds some assets and the archived results went from 40% to currently 48%. There is a fraction of archive minion jobs that failed, reported in #104136
