In Topic: Protects table usage statistics

19 August 2019 - 11:14 PM

"p4 protects" runs plenty fast. It's more of a case of watching the load average slowly creep up as things are added to the protects table when overall Helix usage isn't changing.
Right now all our projects are added in alphabetical order, which is about to change. We'll have a big section of older projects, since they get little activity, followed by a small section of active projects. But we still have a few dozen multi-wildcard lines near the bottom of the table that I've yet to find a way to eliminate. That's where I'm expecting to burn some prepaid consulting time.

In Topic: SSL fingerprint does not match, even from localhost

It depends on which version of ssl you are using. On RHEL7, ssh can use both ECDSA and ED25519. RHEL6 does not support either one. I have no idea what Windows or Mac supports. If you are using *nix, "man ssh" should tell you which algorithms are available; you'll obviously need to check on both ends.

In Topic: Helix in the cloud

Thanks, Matt. As we would use this only in the cloud, we will firewall it to avoid such problems if we go cloud-diving.
We already have DR sites for our hotbeds of Helix traffic.

Where is -vmap documented?

We do have some, some of which seem more inevitable than Thanos's confidence. I actually have a ticket open regarding particular cases; At some number of lines, it has to be more efficient to check (for example) //foo/bar_*/... than X number of lines with /foo/bar_<number>_final. But what is X? 3? 10? 100? (Not 3, that much I'm sure of.)

Far worse are the filters to keep us free of the myriad files third party tools generate that historically caused problems when checked in- either because of size or because of permission issues. I'm going to engage consulting on that because the list we got from the CAD team includes lines with two and three wildcards.
