Subject Re: Jenkins slave able to build BED & RPM
Date Thu, 09 Nov 2017 19:36:49 GMT
Thanks for all your replies. Created custom docker images with freestyle job on Jenkins and
it works great. It was actually easier than I expected.

I now need to do this for all our builds.

As you said, it seems there isn't a centos or Red Hat slave, I'll file a request to INFRA
for this then.

The great benefit is that you can build an rpm and test a built rpm on all the rhel flavored
docker images that you would like to support without the requirement to add additional operating
systems or hardware to the zoo of build slaves.

down and requires everyone to use Docker on the Linux machines.  I’ve spent the past
week looking at why the Jenkins bits have become so unstable on the ‘Hadoop’ nodes.
 One thing that is obvious is that the jobs running in containers are way easier to manage
from the outside.  They don’t leave processes hanging about and provides enough hooks
to make sure jobs are getting a ‘fair share’ of the node’s resources. Bad actor?
Kill the entire container. Bam, gone. That’s before even removing the need to ask for
software to be installed. [No need for 900 different versions of Java installed if everyone
manages their own…]
