Tips on Keeping the infrastructure up to date?

Hi Guys;

 

Any tips on keeping the infrastructure up to date (hubs, robots, probes to a point) in the easiest possible way.

 

For example; on large customers wtih a 3 layer hub (primary, relay, clients) - if you try to push all hubs I believe you'll get a race condition.

 

If the primary get's the hub update first - the rest will fail. (due to restarts)

If the second layer gets the hub update first - the third layer will fail (due to restarts).

 

Anyone have a lua script to do a depth-first search and apply updates at the bottom-nth layer?

Do y'all have a manual process that you prefer?

 

I was theorizing just adding user tags to my hubs telling them which layer they are "on" and creating IM Groups - applying the change at the bottom layer - you think that's a good idea? Downside is you'd have to set this up in advance so it isn't helpful if a bunch of hubs have been rolled out.

 

Regards,

Philip
