Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-9096) Replace lucene.zones.apache.org by a similar Ubuntu-based VM
Date Fri, 27 Mar 2015 20:12:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-9096?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14384524#comment-14384524

Uwe Schindler commented on INFRA-9096:

Thanks Chris!
Ideally we should be able to replace the Jenkins Slave by this new one without the need to
reconfigure our Jobs. They are bound in Jenkins to "lucene", so if we put the new machine
under that label in Jenkins, we are fine.
We can then apply our customizations in the jenkins home folder (placing enwiki files there
for nightly builds and lucene.build.properties for node-specific settings).
As we do our random JVM builds with EA builds of Java already on a different machine, we should
just do builds with official (but recent) Java 7 (Lucene 5) and Java 8 (coming Lucene 6).
7u60+ and 8u20+ is needed as minimum.

> We still run our Jenkins slave on the lucene.zones.apache.org jail (so we don't hurt
the other projects with our veeeeery extensive testing).
> Unfortunately, Lucene trunk changed to Java 8 - and Java 8 is broken on FreeBSD (tests
of Apache Solr crush the VM in the networking code - cause unknown). So we can currently only
run our stable tests for the Lucene/Solr 5.x branch and we build the artifacts with Java 8
on this machine (but no tests). We received the message from [~ke4qqq] that Sigyn will be
shut down in approx 90 days. I am not 100% sure if lucene.zones runs on this host, but a change
to Ubuntu (14.04 LTS) would be very helpful in any case, so we can run our extensive tests
in a separate machine.
> We want to migrate the current FreeBSD Jail to an Ubuntu virtual machine with similar
capacity. We need some additional data files on the Jenkins slave to run our special extensive
tests with lots of data and we would also like to maintain our own list of JDK versions, so
a separate Jenkins Slave with Root access (as currently) would be fine.
> We would take care about installing all additional software required for the Lucene build,
INFRA would just need to setup the private keys for the Jenkins master to log in (more or
less only change ip address of slave node "lucene", so we can keep all our configured jobs.
