Slow processing of multi branch events

      I'm seeing delays of about an hour from when a multi branch event is created in GitHub to when Jenkins actually processes it.

      If I run the in the script console:


      I see:

      java.util.concurrent.ScheduledThreadPoolExecutor@8b0291b[Running, pool size = 10, active threads = 10, queued tasks = 2401, completed tasks = 12838]

      Relevant code appears to be around:




      579 multi branch projects.

      From what I can see in the log in
      /var/jenkins_home/jenkins.branch.* logs

      Events seem to be process in 0-1 seconds but based on Maths comparing events processed over an hour we were only processing 22 a minute, so some must be quite slow.

      We only get to keep 15 minutes worth of logs as the file max size is set to 33 kilobytes for some reason:

      Large organistion with 1.7K repositories, and an organisation webhook is pointing at Jenkins

      Few ideas so far:
      1. Throw more threads at it


      Is hardcoded to 10 threads at a time

      2. Keep logs for longer

      3. See if there's something specific that could be holding this up?

      4. Global configuration to filter projects out of webhook processing? We have lots that don't need to be processed and will never be matched
