= Notes =

 * Launchpad crontabs live in a branch at lp:lp-production-crontabs (look at the `loganberry.canonical.com-launchpad` file). If the crontab entries need changing, do the updates yourself in a branch and propose a merge.
 * The old timing (was 22:00 UTC) used to be chosen so we hit the times when we usually expect the lowest load. Most of the translation work happens in Europe, South America and Asia, and 22:00 UTC should mean less load on LP due to translation activity. With DB slaves, though, this is probably not something we should worry about.
 * The new timing (10:30 UTC) was chosen to be after the new fastnodowntime window at 10:00 - 10:05 UTC during which the database will shortly be unavailable. This would break the export run and has to be avoided ([[https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/849829|bug 849829]]).
 * Currently full language exports take much longer than expected, approaching 24h ([[https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/684664|bug 684664]])

Purpose

Notes

  • Launchpad crontabs live in a branch at lp:lp-production-crontabs (look at the loganberry.canonical.com-launchpad file). If the crontab entries need changing, do the updates yourself in a branch and propose a merge.

  • The old timing (was 22:00 UTC) used to be chosen so we hit the times when we usually expect the lowest load. Most of the translation work happens in Europe, South America and Asia, and 22:00 UTC should mean less load on LP due to translation activity. With DB slaves, though, this is probably not something we should worry about.
  • The new timing (10:30 UTC) was chosen to be after the new fastnodowntime window at 10:00 - 10:05 UTC during which the database will shortly be unavailable. This would break the export run and has to be avoided (bug 849829).

  • Currently full language exports take much longer than expected, approaching 24h (bug 684664)
