The database servers (replicated and user-databases) are going to be
provided by the Labs infrastructure. That's the majority of
Toolserver's servers. We have shared storage provided already.
Let me count:
-2 userland-server (linux)
-1 userland-server (solaris)
-2 web-servers (solaris)
-1 web-serever (linux) (for testing)
-1 server for the roots
-5 replicated db-servers
6 vs 11 – clearly the majority ;-)
The capacity of Labs is far greater than Toolserver's. We have a
cluster in the pmtpa and eqiad datacenters. Each cluster has 7 compute
nodes for virtual machines, 2 database servers for replicas, 1
database server for user databases and 4 storage nodes for shared
So you have 2 database servers for 7 wmf-clusters? You are poorer than we are.
It's definitely possible to re-create Toolserver inside of Labs. I'm
not suggesting that's what should be done for a migration, but it's an
So who is helping me to install solaris? Who is helping me to port our self-
written software over? Who is helping me to change the self-written scripts?
Who is helping me to convert our jira-bugs into your bugzilla? Who will update
all the wiki-pages?
The toolserver is not just a simple Debian with a puppet-system running; its
much more complex. And while I'm sure that I could re-build something similar
in labs in a great time-window, it would just be something similar, not the
same; many tools would break (if you have time, take a look in our JIRA for
things that are not working on Debian, but on work on Solaris).
Sometimes I have the feeling WMF and WMDE thinks that we can shutdown the TS
on a Friday, rsync the stuff at the weekend, power-up labs at Monday and
everything will work….
