17:04:52 <boris-42> hi all
17:05:11 <boris-42> am I alone ;)
17:05:12 <boris-42> ?)
17:05:20 <Alexei_987> alone in the room
17:05:24 <akscram> yep
17:06:02 <boris-42> lol
17:06:20 <redixin> wat
17:06:26 <boris-42> #topic Splitting Rally benchmark & deploy workflows
17:06:42 <boris-42> akscram could you share latest news ?
17:08:31 <boris-42> akscram ?
17:08:41 <akscram> today we discussed benchmarking workloads as a complex tasks
17:08:51 <boris-42> akscram see topic pls
17:09:12 <boris-42> akscram splitting benchmark & deploy workflows
17:09:28 <akscram> is it the #topic command, right?
17:10:08 <redixin> afaik this work depends on resource-db-tracking, and patches are coming soon
17:10:46 <boris-42> akscram yep
17:10:57 <boris-42> Okay let's speed up this discussion
17:11:13 <akscram> #topic splitting benchmark & deploy workflows
17:11:29 <boris-42> I think that only I am able to run this command
17:11:33 <boris-42> #topic splitting benchmark & deploy workflows
17:11:58 <akscram> so, redixin is right
17:12:04 <boris-42> akscram so pls say in few words what we are going to do and links do bp and pathces
17:12:12 <akscram> the splitting is blocked by the resource tracking
17:13:22 <akscram> a patch introducing Resource model is still in progress
17:14:30 <boris-42> akscram okay to make in more clear I will try to explain
17:14:32 <akscram> after that I want to create a patch with tracking resources in server providers
17:14:56 <boris-42> akscram we should merge this patch https://review.openstack.org/#/c/57455/
17:15:24 <boris-42> but it is impossible until deploy part of Rally will track all allocated resources like allocated VMs
17:15:57 <boris-42> it is caused because before this patch, we made deploy-benchamrk-deploy_clenaup in one action and store all data in memory of process
17:16:14 <boris-42> and now deploy and deploy_cleanup are totally separated tasks
17:16:32 <boris-42> so we should store all allocated resources in DB instead of process memory
17:16:53 <boris-42> so I hope at this week we will finish all work around this stuff
17:17:10 <boris-42> #topic benchmark engine improvements
17:17:19 <boris-42> msdubov ping
17:17:25 <msdubov> boris-42 here
17:17:36 <boris-42> msdubov could you share improvements around benchmark engine
17:19:09 <msdubov> boris-42 So, 1) we have merged the patch which enabled Rally to run benchmark scenarios for a given period of time, say, 10 minutes. This is a significant improvement since earlier we were only able to launch scenarios for a restricted number of times, say, 5 times, and this change allows us to create more realistic load
17:19:40 <msdubov> 2) We have also enabled admin openstack client support in benchmark scenarios which will allow us to write fully functional keystone benchmark scenarios
17:19:52 <msdubov> And there are several changes pending for review:
17:20:28 <boris-42> msdubov okay nice
17:20:35 <msdubov> 1) Periodic launch of benchmark scenarios (another significant change, since earlier we were able to run scenarios only continuously, but now we will be able to run periodic tasks
17:20:45 <msdubov> 2) I've repaired the init() mechanism
17:21:02 <msdubov> basically that's all for now
17:21:30 <boris-42> msdubov okay thnaks
17:21:45 <boris-42> #topic make Rally more community oriented
17:22:09 <boris-42> Ok, we have pretty good wiki page, roadmap and so on
17:22:34 <boris-42> But it is hard to understand what are our current goals, current roadmap, tasks in progress and free tasks
17:22:52 <boris-42> so we made Rally page on etherpad that will contain all interesting infromation
17:23:18 <msdubov> boris-42 Will we post weekly updates there?
17:23:26 <redixin> link?
17:23:36 <boris-42> so here is the page https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/Rally_Main
17:23:55 <boris-42> msdubov no weekly updates we will publish on wiki page
17:24:13 <boris-42> msdubov but there will be link from this page to rally updates
17:24:21 <msdubov> boris-42 ok nice
17:24:59 <msdubov> boris-42 btw I think next week I'll start pushing old updates to the archive since there are already 3 of them, and the wiki page is pretty long already
17:25:15 <boris-42> msdubov I think that we could wait a bit
17:25:24 <boris-42> msdubov 5-6 news per page
17:25:31 <msdubov> boris-42 Ok
17:25:46 <boris-42> boden do you have some news to share with us
17:25:56 <boris-42> boden around cloud cleanup
17:26:21 <boden> boris-42 -- almost done with the cloud cleanup... I just finished up the UTs... all I have to do now is merge with the latest and then retest before submitting code review
17:27:30 <boris-42> boden are you executing to finish it  today?
17:27:36 <boris-42> expecting *
17:28:11 <boden> boris-42 I would like to, but it depends if I run into issues from the resulting merge
17:28:33 <boris-42> boden ok nice, thank you
17:28:59 <boris-42> Okay I think that we could end todays meeting
17:29:01 <boden> boris-42... I will probably not take on any more work in near future as I will be out for awhile this month for vacation
17:29:12 <boris-42> boden eh sad..
17:29:35 <redixin> why sad? some snowboarding is fun =)
