Master: Linux 3.8.0-29-generic, Java openJDK 64-bit 1.6.0_27-b27 : Slaves: Windows XP 64-bit 64GB RAM, Sun SDK 1.6.0_21-b07 64 bit
When running two or more unrelated concurrent builds of the same project in Jenkins, some of the builds do not complete until the first build has completed. This is caused by the publish-over-cifs plugin and we see the following message in the console logs of the slaves that are affected: Send build artifacts to a windows share is waiting for a checkpoint on CAD Conversions #1040 . It would be great if this checkpoint feature could be turned off on a per-project basis with an option like "Don't wait for other concurrent builds to complete"
Hi Alex. The job that exhibited the underlying issue isn't really used much so we don't see concurrent builds any more. I'll try and reproduce it and report back. But in any case this ticket was an improvement suggestion, so I think that it would still be useful to have this feature as I believe the underlying problem is caused by individual plugins not using the correct process for checkpointing. Giving the User control over this at a project level is the best way to avoid hung executors until all plugins are updated.
I constructed an artificial test case to check this and I can no longer reproduce the problem using our current Jenkins v1.651.1 and Publish over cifs v0.3 plugin. This means that we no longer need the enhancement requested in this ticket. The enhancement may be generally useful however in the case where other plugins are misbehaving in a similar manner.
