We maintain a devpi infrastructure (one master + several globally distributed replicas) and are facing a scheduled outage of our master server due to external conditions.
Devpi version info:
We will be able to shut down our master in a controlled manner and duration of outage is expected to be less then 5 mins. Also configuration of master (ip, dns, ...) will not change.
Given that I'm no very deep into devpi, I have a couple of questions/assumptions regarding impact and system behaviour, which I'd like to get your input on:
While the master is down, I'd assume the following operations to fail:
* devpi login to replica
* devpi upload (with/without docs) to replica
While master is down, I'd assume the following operations to work:
* pip install -i URL_TO_REPLICA/user/index
* browser access to indices/release files/docu via URL_TO_REPLICA/user/index
Are these assumptions correct?
After booting our master successfully, would any manual interaction be required to ensure previously (before master shutdown) operational state?
