      timestamper-plugin 1.13
      OpenJDK 1.8.0_282
      CentOS 7.9.2009

      Since updating timestamper-plugin to version 1.13, Jenkins throws IOExceptions for "Too many open files" after some hours and Jenkins gets unresponsive.

      Checked with Linux's "lsof -u jenkins" command we see a lot of open files with pattern


      The number of open files of this pattern increases over time until the limit is reached.

      A Jenkins restart frees the file handles and makes Jenkins responsive again - until open file limits are reached again.

      A downgrade of timestamper-plugin to version 1.12 solved the issue for us.
