Parent builds sometimes hang on successful child builds of same type



    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed (View Workflow)
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Postponed
    • Component/s: multijob-plugin
    • Labels:

      jenkins 1.593
      multijob plugin 1.16
    • Similar Issues:


      With a job configuration like:


      occasionally we'll get output that looks like this:

      Starting build job child_job.
      Starting build job child_job.
      Finished Build : #123 - Job : child_job with status : SUCCESS
      <this hangs forever, so we abort the parent_job>
      Aborting all subjobs.
      Finished Build : #124 - Job : child_job with status : ABORTED

      However, job #124 will always have finished successfully. We see this relatively rarely (~5% of parent_job builds?). My guess is that there's a race condition causing this, since we usually see this during times of high load (ie many child_job instances are being started).

            Comment [ I believe I have a similar issue.

            A log shows :

            Starting build job ECM JARs.

            SCM polling is disabled for all subjobs including the multijob parent itself.

            What is interesting is that this happens just when switching from the multijob to subjob.

            In my case it is the multijob that check out the source code & the subjobs are inheriting the workspace.

            Maybe this info could help. It is 100% reproducible.
