Looks like spot prices in us-west-1 are comparable with prices in other US regions. Average prices for September for instance types we use are below. Standing up would require setting up VPC, subnets, security groups, puppet masters, buildbot masters, etc. Sorted by average price: ===== m1.medium ===== us-west-1 0.00808717948718 us-east-1 0.009308033241 us-west-2 0.0117338296112 ===== m3.2xlarge ===== us-west-2 0.106082876165 us-east-1 0.243992095536 us-west-1 0.249989967638 ===== c3.xlarge ===== us-west-2 0.0372971819927 us-west-1 0.0396091441112 us-east-1 0.212801941748 ===== m3.medium ===== us-west-1 0.0280343497758 us-east-1 0.119250991501 us-west-2 0.1417 ===== r3.xlarge ===== us-west-1 0.0321209150327 us-east-1 0.0327683232811 us-west-2 0.0363334153984 ===== r3.2xlarge ===== us-west-1 0.0654128983308 us-west-2 0.0767122617854 us-east-1 0.0792172057133 ===== c3.2xlarge ===== us-west-1 0.08246069375 us-west-2 0.0857382912311 us-east-1 0.0864698258851 ===== m3.xlarge ===== us-west-2 0.077998854233 us-east-1 0.147909088359 us-west-1 0.266855487805
We already have a VPC to us-west-1 (N. California) and the prices for g2.2xlarge (ie g-w732) are consistently less than our $0.70 bid. Prices are also a lot less spiky than us-east-1 & us-west-2, so there may be less demand in us-west-1 and it may be worth working on this bug. Initial investigations * check prices to see if it'd be useful to enable more than g-w732 in us-west-1 * check progress of move to taskcluster, no point doing this work if won't be used for long We'd need * a puppet master * a pair of log aggregator instances * a proxxy instance ? Need to verify if we're still using that * some buildbot masters * some subnets, route tables etc * new workers in slavealloc and buildbot config There is already a VPC, nagios, and smokeping/canary there. catlee, what do you think of this ?
I think we could probably get away without a puppet master, initially at least. We are still using proxxy, so will need one stood up. I think we should definitely try it out. There are other new regions as well that have come online, so this could be good practice :)
is this bug still required? If so, I'd like to reassign to the buildduty folks.
I'm not quite sure now. With more and more stuff moving to TC, we can probably WONTFIX this bug. Chris, what you say?
