      Description

      The timeout option works inconsistent when is defined on pipeline level vs on stage level. On pipeline level it is applied after allocating the node. On stage level it is applied ASAP. It causes a problems on heavy loaded environments when the builds wait quite long for an agent.

      Pipeline Level:

      pipeline {
          agent {
              label 'tiny'
          }
          options {
              // too short to get an agent
              timeout(time: 1, activity: false, unit: 'SECONDS')
          }
          stages {
              stage('Test') {
                  steps {
                      echo 'success'
                  }
              }
          }
      }
      

      Output:
