Remove obsolete Java 8 packages from logstash cluster
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The logstash* cluster used to run Java 8 in the past (installed from a separate component), but is using 11 currently. Can we prune the obsolete debs? This reduces the noise in tracking Java update and also prevents any other package to accidentally use the outdated/insecure Java 8 packages (since the component/jdk8 repo component isn't added by Puppet anymore).

The packages in question are openjdk-8-jre-headless, openjdk-8-jre, openjdk-8-jdk-headless and openjdk-8-jdk

SGTM, IIRC java 8 was in use by kafka-logging which is no longer colocated on the logstash hosts.

And no longer seeing openjdk-8 in use checking with e.g. $ cumin 'logstash*' 'lsof | grep java-8'

Let's get a +1 from @fgiunchedi @colewhite too and then go ahead and remove the packages.
