[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
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.
