      I've had a KillStuckPolling.groovy job running for about 6 months without problems, but on January 4th it stopped working with the below stack trace. This matches with the release of Jenkins 1.446, which is currently installed. I have tried to restart the server without any effect.

      The groovy script is as follows:

       Thread.getAllStackTraces().keySet().each() { 
         item ->
         println "Checking item" + item.getName();
         if (item.getName().contains("SCM polling") && item.getName().contains("waiting for hudson.remoting")) { 
           println "   Interrupting thread " + item.getId(); 

      And the bash script used to start it is as follows

      #!/bin/bash -e
      echo "## Kills stuck polling jobs on Jenkins"
      if [ -z "$JENKINS_URL" ]; then
        echo "ERROR: This script must be run on Jenkins. It cannot be run manually"
        exit 1
      echo "Getting latest Jenkins CLI from ${JENKINS_URL}"
      if [ -w jenkins-cli.jar ]; then
        rm jenkins-cli.jar
      wget ${JENKINS_URL}jnlpJars/jenkins-cli.jar
      echo "Killing all stuck SCM polls using ~/bin/KillStuckPolling.groovy"
      java -jar jenkins-cli.jar -s ${JENKINS_URL}/ groovy ~/bin/KillStuckPolling.groovy
