Brownout of the Maven Central mirrored repositories in JFrog Artifactory (repo.jenkins-ci.org)

repo.jenkins-ci.org ci.jenkins.io

Resolved after 1h 30m of downtime. August 2, 2023 at 4:00 PM

[Final Message] Brownout is finished after 1h30 (instead of initial 1 hour).

[Initial Message] Wednesday 02 of August, we’ll perform a brownout operation of 1 hour on the Jenkins Artifactory service at repo.jenkins-ci.org at 14:30 UTC for ~1 hour.

This operation consists in removing all mirrors of the Maven Central artifact repository from repo.jenkins-ci.org to force Maven builds to download mirrored artefacts from the Maven central instead of our Artifactory instance.

This planned brownout is a step of https://github.com/jenkins-infra/helpdesk/issues/3599 to decrease the amount of outbound bandwidth download of our instance.

There should be no functional impact, as Maven as a built-in fallback to the repository central. However, we expect the builds on ci.jenkins.io to be a bit slower as the artifacts downloaded from central won’t be cached anymore.
