|[eclipse.org-committers] Eclipse.org infra update: Indigo, New servers, bugzilla upgrade
Now that Indigo has shipped, Matt and I are up to our elbows in maintenance. Here's what's going on:
Congratulations to everyone on the successful release of Indigo. We moved over 250,000 downloads in the first three days! From an IT standpoint, the release went off without a hitch. Thanks to everyone for helping make that happen.
New File Servers
We've acquired a pair of new file servers to replace the aging hardware that caused outages in June. Migrating to the new servers is expected to happen next weekend, July 30. During the migration, all of the Eclipse.org services will be placed in read-only mode so that I can transfer all the data to the new servers.
Most of the migration time is spent copying the zillions of files in the filesystem. Here's how you can help reduce the down time:
1. Clean your home directory on dev.eclipse.org. As a reminder: your home directory must not be used as a build workspace! Everyone with shell access should log in and clean up; especially the users listed below...
2. Clean your downloads and archives area. There are millions of files here; if they are not needed, please delete them.
3. Clean /shared on the build server
4. Project Leads: make sure your committers clean up :)
We've begun work on upgrading our Bugzilla 3.6.3 instance to Bugzilla 4.0. Stay tuned for an update on this in the near future.
Thanks for reading. If you have any questions, please drop me a line at webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx.
