Re: how long do we keep jenkins logs

Oh look, I'm resurrecting a thread you may have thought died :)

As of which was just merged
all jobs will now announce a new logs hosting location. This is added to
the Gerrit comment and for those jobs that haven't rolled out of Jenkins
the job description will also be updated with this URL. is the base location. Logs for the
production silo are kept for 6 months. Those that show up in the sandbox
silo are kept for 7 days which is pretty much par for the course there
since we wipe all the jobs out of the sandbox every Saturday.

As an FYI if your job was running as the change got merged in, it may
have picked up the log push bits but may not have been running on the
modified build minion. Any new builds should be fine though!

One final note about this. The pushed logs are pre-compressed and the
hosting site is configured to deliver the logs in a way that browser
will automatically open them. This means that the logs should be
delivered faster than they were if you were looking in via the Jenkins UI.

Jenkins keeps only the last 40 builds.
I think we can increase the amount of logs we save, let me confirm.

and it appears the verify results are already removed

How long do we keep the logs, etc, around? Seems like removal after
a day of activity is way too short
