Re: [cbi-dev] [eclipse.org-committers] Fwd: [eclipse-mirrors] Eclipse mirror size ~1.4 TB


Adding the cbi-dev mailing list, as your question is a good one.

Given that there is no longer shell access to build.eclipse.org, what is the recommended way to do this cleanup? Create Jenkins build jobs that list directory contents in the console, decide what can be deleted, and then create another job to do the deletion?

We really need a file browsing mechanism, but in the meanwhile, your suggestion of using Jenkins jobs is how I recommend you do it. It's clunky, but it's all we have right now.

The disk footprint of mirrored content on download.eclipse.org is up to 1.4TB. We need to do a better job (much better) of keeping it small. I've filed https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=546434 to track this.

download.eclipse.org should only be used to store current release builds. Archived builds should be moved to archive.eclipse.org, and nightly and integration builds should be deleted once stale.

See the docs for more info:

Below is a table of projects that seem to be consuming more disk space than I'd expect.

Hi Eclipse Mirror team,

Currently eclipse mirror is ~1.4 TB, surpassing both debian and ubuntu in size.

Is it possible to create a more compact rsync module containing most requested files?

For example OpenSuse has "hotstuff" modules for mirrors who want to provide value while conserving space and downstream sync bandwidth. (i.e. I don't like to download 375 versions of a file -over the life time of the mirror- for that single person over there using that project, they can go to the main mirror for that file)
