Updating and restarting LNT server running at llvm.org/perf?

Hi Daniel,

Recently quite a few nice improvements have been made to the LNT webui, and it would be good to have these improvements
show up on the instance at http://llvm.org/perf. AFAIK, you’re one of the few people who know how to update & restart that instance
safely?

If so could you update that instance to latest top-of-trunk LNT?

I’m expecting more improvements to be done soon-ish, so we’ll probably want to update that instance more frequently to
top-of-trunk LNT. If you don’t have much time to do these upgrades, maybe the procedure could be shared with a few more
people?

Thanks,

Kristof

Hi Kristof,

It has been a while since I did this, but I will try to get it done this week, and at the same time I will document the steps so other people with access to llvm.org can follow them.

And thanks for all the improvements you have made!!

Hi Kristof,

Nevermind, the server has been updated and restarted. :slight_smile:

Apparently I already automated the update part, in the llvm-admin repo is a
script utils/perf_update.sh which will update and reload the server. I
never automated the reload (e.g., on commit) because I felt like it made
sense to only update it as a controlled operation.

Thanks!

With the recent changes, the daily report pages start highlighting performance deltas that look mostly significant, instead of mostly in-the-noise J.

Now we’ll “only” need to figure out how to fix the lnt server falling over at times…
