Thanks Peter !

This is affecting all CSIT vpp and honeycomb jobs that rely on Nexus images, 

including ALL periodic jobs - daily performance trending jobs, and semi-weekly

and weekly jobs..


Ed, Vanessa, Could you pls help here? We will open the helpdesk ticket (Peter pls do that).

I’ve recently found that a new package was introduced: 18.02-vpp1_arm64. I guess this is expected as of adding new architecture and onboarding ARM.

I also found that currently vpp-dpdk-dkms package points the RELEASE version to arm64 instead of amd64 [1].
















This breaks our CSIT trending jobs as we are always pulling latest RELEASE version (once job is fired) and expecting that correct version is downloaded.


Our command



As of now, is there any way to get the proper release version from nexus based on ARCH? E.g “PLATFORM” or similar [2]?








If no, may I suggest to start using a new field in nexus for architecture if they will sit in one repo/dir so it can be easily downloaded for target platform?


Thank you.
