[eclipse.org-committers] Eclipse infra update: Bugzilla Upgrade, Hudson disk space demystified, Holiday Maintenance Schedule
Here's a quick note to inform you about some upcoming maintenance
to the Eclipse.org servers.
Over the Christmas holidays we will be upgrading Bugzilla to
the latest release (Bugzilla 3.6.3). A specific
date has not been determined yet, but will be communicated to you
via this list later on.
You can read all about the new features in Bugzilla 3.6.x here:
Hudson/Build Disk Space Demystified
We have many hard disk arrays at Eclipse.org and we try to put
them all to good use to help improve build performance -- at the
cost of some complexity. Therefore, I've put together a simple
chart (attached) which should help you better understand our disk
layout, how much space we have, where specific content should go,
and where you need to clean up frequently.
This chart is part of the Hudson docs:
Hudson/Build disk failure requires outage
A hard disk has failed on one of the arrays that hosts the
files for download.eclipse.org, as well as the /shared area on the
build server. Unfortunately, the system is not accepting the
newly transplanted replacement drive, so we will need to take the
array (along with Hudson and the Build server) offline. We will
do this over the Christmas holiday week, between Dec. 26 and Jan.
1. Specific dates have not been determined yet, but will be
communicated to you via this list later on.
Thanks for reading. If you have any questions or concerns, please
ask us directly at webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx.
 The week between Christmas and New Year's day (Dec.
26-Jan 1) has traditionally been the week with the
absolute lowest amount of activity for us; therefore, we estimate
it is the best week to perform maintenance.
