Mission Statement

To provide infrastructure for the AdoptOpenJDK farm that is:

  • Secure - Infrastructure is private by default and access is granted in a time and access control limited manner.
  • Consistent - Infrastructure is consistent in order to produce consistent AdoptOpenJDK binaries.
  • Repeatable - Infrastructure can be reproduced by our infrastructure as code. We embrace the Chaos Monkey.
  • Auditable - What each host/platform is made up of is publicly accessible infrastructure as code.

The end result should be immutable hosts, which can be destroyed and reproduced from Ansible playbooks. See our Contribution Guidelines on how we implement these goals.

Can we Chaos Monkey it

See our current Chaos Monkey Status.

Standard Action Items

  • Apply non-security patches to infrastructure systems.
  • Apply Application patches to: Nagios, Jenkins, AWX, etc.


The following items are stored in GitHub.

  • Source code, System deployment scripts (Ansible), Instructions/How to Information
Description Storage Location Frequency
Jenkins (ci) - Configuration and Settings localhost /mnt/backup-server/jenkins_backup Daily
Nagios - Configuration and Settings localhost /root/backups Weekly
AWX - Configuration and Settings not currently backed up N/A


Backup schedule:

  • How often should be backup?
  • Where should it be stored?

Backup retention:

  • How long should be keep it?
  • How many copies?

OS Patch Management

WARNING: Several of our hosts are internet facing and we need to stay vigilant of the potential security risks this presents.

Patch Management / Minimum Time Frame

Vulnerability Type Time Frame
Critical severity 24 hours or less
High severity 7 days
Moderate and low severity 30 days
  • Nagios is configured to monitor each system and report on the status of OS patches required.
  • Non-infrastructure systems are configured to automatically apply all patches. (Sundays at 5am local host time)
  • Infrastructure systems are configured to automatically apply security patches only. (Sundays at 5am local host time) This information is logged on the localhost: /var/log/apt-security-updates

Application Updates

  • During our quarterly maintenance window application patches will be applied manually.
  • When a critical or high severity vulnerability is announced patching will take place within the time frame stated above.
