There are 5 "miscelaneous" shards: m1-m5.

  • m1: Basic ops utilities
  • m2: otrs, gerrit and others
  • m3: phabricator and other older task systems
  • m4: eventlogging system
  • m5: openstack and other labs-related dbs

On the last cleanup, many unused databases were archived and/or deleted, and a contact person was discovered for each of them.


Current schemas

These are the current dbs, and what was needed to failover then:

  • bacula ; sudo service bacula-director restart after the migration. I had already made sure no jobs were running with status director. Tested after with a list media
  • etherpadlite ; seems like etherpad-lite crashed after the migration and systemd took care of restarting it. etherpad crashes anyway at least once a week if not more so no big deal ; tested by opening a pad
  • heartbeat: needs "manual migration"- change master role on puppet
  • librenms: required manual kill of its connections @netmon1001: apache reload
  • puppet: required manual kill of its connections; This caused the most puppet spam. Either restart puppet-masters or kill connections **as soon** as the failover happens.
  • racktables: went fine, no problems
  • rt: required manual kill of its connections ; @unobtinium: apache reload

Deleted/archived schemas
