This week in Mozilla Releng – July 4, 2014

This is a special double issue of this week in releng. I was so busy in the last week that I didn’t get a chance to post this last week.  Despite the fireworks for Canada Day and Independence Day,  Mozilla release engineering managed to close some bugs. 

Major highlights:

  • Armen, although he works on Ateam now, made blobber uploads discoverable and blogged about it.  Blobber is a server and client side set of tools that allow Releng’s test infrastructure to upload files without requiring to deploy ssh keys on them. 
  • Callek and Coop, who served on buildduty during the past two weeks worked to address capacity issues with our test and build infrastructure.  We hit a record of 88,000 jobs yesterday which led to high pending counts.
  • Kim is trying to address the backlog of Android 2.3 test jobs  by moving more test jobs to AWS from our inhouse hardware now that Geoff on the Ateam has found a suitable image.
  • Rail switched jacuzzi EBS from magnetic to SSD.  Jacuzzis are similar pools of build machines  and switching their EBS storage from magnetic to SSD in AWS will improve build times.

 Completed work (resolution is ‘FIXED’):

In progress work (unresolved and not assigned to nobody):
