(On our Jitsi instance today: .)


 * [rdm#2463] gerrit upgraded to 2.13.11, but no OS upgrade yet, and the
   highstate wasn't applied either
   + Need some refactoring of the salt states (vm148 isn't using the new
   + Any preferred time when to do the upgrade?
   + AI guilhem: upgrade any friday/saturday night
 * Prometheus
   + Brett: Which version of prometheus-node-exporter are we going to
     use? is using the backports version. 0.16 was
     recently uploaded into backports and changes a number of metric
     - G. Fair point, for the baseline we should stick to Debian proper
       if possible as backports don't have security support from the
       Debian Security Team
     - I pulled the backport sources since I wanted prometheus 2.x, and
       prometheus-node-exporter bpo came with it ^^
     - Do we have reasons not to downgrade?  Unlike prometheus,
       prometheus-node-exporter is (should be) in baseline
     - TODO downgrade
 * Alert system update
   + Brett: 'prometheus' branch ready for review, it includes some alert
   + AI guilhem: review and merge
 * Status page:
   + CachetHQ test instance at
     (snakeoil cert)
   + Works fine with MariaDB 10.1 and PHP 7.0
   + Can subscribe to events by mail or RSS/atom feeds
   + Doesn't monitor directly but another service can use the API to
     send metric points and automatically change state from/to
   + AI guilhem: Deploy a prod instance next to monitoring.tdf (Need PHP
     & MariaDB)
   + monitoring.tdf is hosted at filoo, most of the prod boxes are at
     manitu, so different AS:es and datacenters
   + new ADMIN password does seem to stick
   + iKVM is a real pain to use… would rather use the serial console
     `ipmitool -I lanplus -H $IP -e'&' -U ADMIN sol activate`
   + OK to start with “console=ttyS1” in the kernel command line and
     start an agetty(8) on that TTY?  Cf. berta
   + Same thing for the VMs but with ttyS0: `virsh console $vmXYZ`; we
     don't really need SPICE do we?
   → OK fine to stick to the console :-)
 * Hypervisor upgrades:
   + charly upgraded to 9.4 on June 30, adapted the salt config for
     hypervisors accordingly
   + 9.5 released on July 14, can upgrade another hypervisor this
     week-end (excelsior and/or dauntless)
     - cloph: can shut down vm176 & vm177 during the upgrade
 * How about moving the calls to Jitsi?  OK for everyone \o/
 * Next call: Tuesday August 21 2018 at 18:30 Berlin time (16:30 UTC)
