I am excited to announce that after a week of testing, we are ready to migrate our ticket service, issues.jenkins-ci.org, to the Linux Foundation by next Monday, the 9th of November 2020. The maintenance window will start at 2 PM UTC and we expect it to last for 3hours.
We’ll do the following actions during the maintenance window:
We'll stop the Apache service so we are sure that nobody updates issues.jenkins-ci.org contents on the old machine.
We'll back up the service.
We’ll restore the backup on the Linux foundation machine.
We’ll update the DNS record to redirect traffic to the Linux Foundation machine.
I’ll drink a glass of hops juice to celebrate when everything is done.
If everything goes well, next Monday at 5 PM UTC, the Jenkins project will be offloaded for one of his major websites which have been around since the 17th of February 2011, according to our sponsored Atlassian license.
This service is being used to track issues or ongoing work related to the Jenkins project
It’s a critical service for the project and represents several hundreds of Gigabytes of traffic per month. But at the same time, the Jenkins project keeps growing month after month and it has become difficult to find the time needed to correctly maintain this service at the scale the Jenkins project is running. The Linux foundation offered to maintain it and we took this opportunity so we could focus on other areas.
I already want to thank the Linux foundation for taking ownership of this service but also the OSUOSL organization that provided the machine and the managed database for running this service at scale for that long and of course I can't forget all the people who helped maintain this service.
Thanks to Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Tyler Croy, Tim Jacomb, Mark Waite, Arnaud Heritier, Andrew Bayer, Daniel Beck, Oleg Nenashev, and my rubber duck.
