Generate server admin log from #nasqueron-ops
Open, HighPublic

Description

We should maintain a server admin log somewhere, and for that, collect information from the IRC channel nasqueron-ops.

Format

If a line follows this format, we can add an entry to the server log:

[Instance] message

What others do?

On the wikimedia-operations channel, the format used is:

!log <freeform message>

Instances

Instance could be:

InstanceExample
Server[Ysul] Restored IPv6 connectivity (broken 13 minutes ago)
Jail[Ysul/mumble] Imported configuration from Ysul /usr/local/etc/murmur.ini
Docker container[Notifications] apt-get update to fix glibc DNS issue

False positivse

We should avoid this plausible false positive:

  • [15:19:53] <Nasqueron/orgz> New repository nasqueron/ports M-b~@~T https://github.com/nasqueron
  • [1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34]
  • [05-Nov-2015 21:17:17 UTC] [2015-11-05 21:17:17] EXCEPTION: …
  • [ title ]
  • [...]

Some false positives should perhaps be let undetected:

  • [JIRA] [ircbot-plugin] (JENKINS-31534) IRC bot doesn't connect but throw a NullPointerException
  • [ops@dwellers docker-phabricator]$ docker logs loving_meitner

Current design is prepared in rSERVERSLOGDESIGN.

We should try a feed design with something like:

<div class="log-entry">
    <span class="log-component secondary label">Ysul</span>
    <span class="log-messsage">Upgraded to 10.1-RELEASE-p37</span>
</div>
