Hi analysts and friends,
The following database hosts will be offline starting at 15:00 UTC on
Tuesday April 5, for approximately 3 hours, for an operating system upgrade.
These are the private full replica analytics mariadb hosts (
https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Analytics/Systems/MariaDB) that can be
accessed from the stat boxes via analytics-mysql and Jupyter.
Read about the upgrade here: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T299481
Respond to this email, comment on the ticket, or come say hi at
#wikimedia-analytics if you have any concerns.

I need to find a time to reboot two of our analytics explorer (aka stat)
servers in order to pick up a new kernel version.
These servers are the two that have the AMD GPUs in them, namely
stat1005 and stat1008.
Ideally I would like to reboot both of these this *Friday March the
24th, between 10:00 UTC and 10:30 UTC*.
Please let me know if this maintenance window is too soon and would
cause you inconvenience.
If this is the case, then I will then look to push back back the date of
the reboots to accommodate your needs.
