Deploying GitLab Pages can take very long to complete, with no clear indication of progress
https://ops.gitlab.net/gitlab-com/gl-infra/deployer/-/jobs/1515054 is an example of this: at the time of writing this job has been running for over 70 minutes. Due to the extreme verbosity of the logging output, it's impossible to tell if:
- This is normal
- How long this is expected to take
- How many hosts have already been deployed to
I think this comes down to our ansible logs just being, well, rather useless. When something fails it's often not very clear why. When something works, it's not clear how long it will take, where we are, etc.
