The Jenkins Master Java.exe process is constantly running and reading hundreds of different workflow.xml files, thus causing Windows to become less responsive.
The hard drive active time is showing 100% and disk i/o running under 50% both the Windows Task Manager and Windows Resource monitor.
The two main resources are
Java.exe and system are running.
An example of the files constantly being read/cycle through by the Jenkins Java.exe process (taken from the Windows Resource Monitor):
Java.exe PID:4332 C:\Program files(x86)\Jenkins\Jobs\Create-mac\builds\16\workflow\34.xml
There are many XML files, that it is cycling through within all our build jobs/pipelines and it never ends - it has been running for about 4 days (that we have noticed).
Has any one seen this with Jenkins via Windows Resource monitor before?
