Subject Hudson administrivia, build timeout
Date Tue, 07 Jul 2009 10:43:13 GMT
I'm installing the following plugins:

- Audit Trail plugin ('Keep a log of who performed particular Hudson
  operations, such as configuring jobs', handy in our configuration with
  so many users)

- Bugzilla Plugin ('This plugin integrates Bugzilla into Hudson', we use
  bugzilla in SpamAssassin and I'm sure there are others)

- Warnings Plugin ('This plugin generates the trend report for compiler
  warnings in the build log', looks pretty nifty!)

- and I'm going to re-try the Build Timeout plugin ('This plugin allows
  you to automatically abort a build if it's taking too long').
We tried the build timeout before, I think, and it didn't help.  But I
think some of the timeouts we're seeing now are due to broken tests on
some projects, and we've upgraded Hudson itself since the last try, so
it's worth a retry in my opinion.

I also checked the recent Hudson changelog, but nothing relevant has been
implemented that would fix build hangs.

Anyway, if your project has had problems with build hangs, please enable a
timeout on the "Configure" page.  It's about halfway down, in the "Build
Environment" section -- tick the '[x] Abort the build if it's stuck'
tickbox and set 'Timeout minutes' to a sane upper limit.  

If we run into builds of your projects timing out, we'll set this for you. ;)
