.xlarge instance types are expensive, let's test running those tests on a range of instance types that are cheaper
taras kmoir: can you also set your new stuff taras to use a range of c3.xl, r3.xl and m3.xl? -->| marcia (chatzilla@moz-E88C0D73.lightspeed.sntcca.sbcglobal.net) has joined #releng taras just like we do for compiles? taras or just set them to r3.xl for now taras those are slightly cheape catlee yeah, I think http://hg.mozilla.org/build/cloud-tools/file/c10ba9d1f8b0/configs/watch_pending.cfg#l44 just needs adjusting catlee kmoir: ^^ if you want to give that a shot kmoir Right but have someone tested that the they all run on those instance types too? kmoir without failure? taras kmoir: i think that'll be you taras r3.xl is nearly identical to c3.xl kmoir k. Well I'll open a bug and look at when I'm waiting for tests to complete on the other bug I'm working on for single locale builds for Android submitting to balrog catlee it's a pretty easy config tweak kmoir I know catlee maybe try it on monday and see what happens kmoir it's just the testing that takes time kmoir would test on a branch first catlee https://cheezburger.com/6615104768
Not sure how to test this on a branch without and not deploy to all. I guess since it works for the builders it should work for the tests?

We can revert if necessary, and kill off the nodes if they're bad. Please clean up the trailing whitespace.

I haven't seen any issues with this on Tbpl since this was enable three hours ago and I can see in the aws console that the different instance types are being activated.

coop|buildduty should i be worried about the “400 Bad Request” errors in the aws_watch_pending.py output? nthomas is there a lot of them ? nthomas 1 or a few is not unusual nthomas haven't seen |Virtualization type 'hvm' is required for instances of type 'r3.xlarge'| before coop|buildduty that’s the one coop|buildduty repeated many, many times nthomas http://hg.mozilla.org/build/cloud-tools/rev/3607eb84d963 seems unrelated nthomas we can page rail or figure out what instances types to disable nthomas I'm assuming AWS made a change which makes the API more restrictive nthomas first message is Date: Mon, 11 Aug 2014 06:46:56 -0700 nthomas wonders why this hasn't been a big issue for launching build instances coop|buildduty http://hg.mozilla.org/build/cloud-tools/rev/9dcb80cffe6c ? nthomas bingo kmoir yeah I landed that yesterday but it looked okay at the time kmoir we do the same thing for the builders =-= mtabara|lunch is now known as mtabara nthomas there's probably something different about the ami though nthomas I recall rail had a bunch of fun making one that supported both virtualisation types kmoir so perhaps I should just remove r3.xlarge kmoir yeah, I didn;t change the ami nthomas https://aws.amazon.com/amazon-linux-ami/instance-type-matrix/ says m3.xlarge supports pv nthomas so just removing r3.xlarge should be fine kmoir okay I'll get a patch ready for review

not a messsage in the log anymore
:rail how can I change the ami so it can support both virtualisation types? r3.xlarge only supports HVM. Looking at the amis in the aws console it seems you can only specify one type.
AMIs cannot support both virtualization types unfortunately... :( We could add support for PV and HVM (using different AMIs), what would require: * creating and testing HVM AMI for Ubuntu * generate golden AMIs for both types * add support for both AMI types in aws_watch_pending.py
Okay thanks rail, I'll investigate in bug 1053800
