jonl 2017-09-07 13:36:21 Hey does anybody have a "reasonable" way to add a host to groups dynamically without touching the inventory file? Similar to how packer uses the "ansible-local" provisioner?
while1malloc0 2017-09-07 15:44:15 http://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/add_host_module.html That's my preferred way
haani-niyaz 2017-09-10 06:40:29 Hey all, just about to start an infra project where *pair programming* has been promoted as the _way to work_. This is my first time and I am wondering if anyone has any good tips to make this activity productive?
amulholland 2017-09-11 08:56:45 Morning all - Is it possible to use PostgreSQL OOTB for sharding? just the standard open source 9.6 version of pgres ? Can’t find very much other than “Pay for this tool and that’ll do it for you!'
coderanger 2017-09-11 13:15:06 @amulholland How do you define "sharding"? Normally it isn't a thing that requires support from the database
yarmiganosca 2017-09-11 13:30:15 @coderanger I too think of sharing as something the database provides/supports. when the app has to know the shard-node making and direct its requests accordingly, I think of that as "manual sharding", so I think y'all are working from the and definition, just differing on which end has implementation responsibility.
coderanger 2017-09-11 13:31:19 Indeed :slightly_smiling_face: Hence asking which they meant
yarmiganosca 2017-09-11 13:32:02 also @amulholland have you looked at Citus? they make a postgres extension that supports sharding
coderanger 2017-09-11 13:33:20 Postgres does not have any internal routing system like that, but it's normally implemented via pgpool or pgbouncer sitting in front of the database and handling connection routing So it's unpleasant to set up. If you need a dataset that doesn't fit on any one node, probably consider using something other than Postgres. But the handling in those is mostly aimed at load balancing across read replicas, not full sharding
yarmiganosca 2017-09-11 13:44:09 @coderanger not trying to be combative with this: have you used Citus? asking because I haven't and would love to hear experiences of you've got 'em
coderanger 2017-09-11 13:45:12 Nope, but I'm friends with head of their cloud team and trust him 100% no questions asked on postgres issues :slightly_smiling_face:
yarmiganosca 2017-09-11 13:48:00 oh nice!
amulholland 2017-09-11 14:10:02 Hey all, thanks for the responses. Apparently my lead was using the incorrect terminology :stuck_out_tongue: He really just wants read-only replicas and a master

coderanger 2017-09-11 17:14:58 @arunkumar Mostly just that it's a niche tool that doesn't get updated a ton The Heroku style has kind of dominated that world now with tools like Deis and CloudFoundry
