More capacity and performance for GerritHub.io

We are pleased to announce that we have successfully completed a new major hardware upgrade to the GerritHub.io platform.

What has been upgraded on GerritHub.io ?

There is a brand new production cluster which provides:

  • More memory (up to 32 GBytes per node)
  • More disk-space (up to 2TBytes per node)
  • More concurrency (up to 8 CPUs per node)

The new cluster is geolocated in Germany / Bayern and provides a much better and stable bandwith.

Do I need to change anything on my client ?

GerritHub.io is accessible from the old and the new IP addresses:

  • old IP address: 94.23.71.44
  • new IP address: 148.251.77.70

The GerritHub DNS is currently propagating the new IP to gerrithub.io and review.gerrithub.io hostnames: during the propagaton time (max 24h) both IPs will provide the same access to the Germany based production cluster.

What about my Git/SSH access ?

When using Git over SSH, the remote host SSH key is exchanged and associated to the resolved remote IP into ~/.ssh/known_hosts file in your local machine. This means that you have currently associated the GerritHub.io SSH public key to the 94.23.71.44 (old IP address).

When the DNS propagation will be completed, you will see a warning from your SSH client asking to verify that the new IP address is OK. In some cases you may be asked to verify and re-accept the SSH public key.

Example of the warning you would probably see on your Git client over SSH:

Warning: Permanently added the RSA host key for IP address '[148.251.77.70]:29418' to the list of known hosts.

Double-check that the IP address shown corresponds to the new GerritHub.io cluster (148.251.77.70). This warning will be displayed only once and then the new IP will be stored in your ~/.ssh/known_hosts file.
