lsst-db server upgrade/replacement

Unknown User (pdomagala)The lsst-db server ( will be replaced with new hardware running MariaDB 10.2. All data will be migrated to the new server ( and the old hostnames will point to the new server (via CNAMEs). Feel free to test the new server ahead of the PM. Users can test the new server beginning 2017-12-06. It contains a copy of all data from that date. Users have access to MySQL from any remote host.  Most users do not have or need SSH access to this host, but SSH access is limited to only from NCSA’s subnet.

Monitoring for Docker & Kubernetes

Question from Unknown User (xiuqin): Could you ask about the logging/monitoring from LDF for K8s/docker?

  • Kubernetes & Docker are definitely in the monitoring plan
  • hardware and system level monitoring already in place for all systems, including PDAC.
  • Dashboards are currently only available from NCSA networks, but will be made more widely available when they reach an appropriate level of maturity and have undergone a security assessment
PDAC StatusGregory Dubois-Felsmann
