I'm using Hudson for monitoring external jobs:
java -jar /path/to/hudson-core.jar "job name" <program arg1 arg2...>
This functionality enables me to have a unified view of many different jobs on
several systems, which is good.
The bad thing is that if my Hudson instance (jetty) is unreachable from the
systems executing the jobs, the jobs are not run!
1) Is there a property defining what to do with the external job if a connection
to Hudson can not be obtained?
2) If not, can I please have such an option. It not a good thing that all the
jobs stop working just because the monitoring tool (Hudson is this case) is
down. Until I get the option, I am not able to use Hudson as a monitoring tool,
it is very important that the jobs run.
