    Kill hung build process automatically

    Kill hung build process automatically

    Kill your hung builds

    Enable or disable it globally

    Use default Bamboo Build Monitoring to configure

    No more hung builds stealing agents' time. Now, if Bamboo detects a hung build, this plugin will kill the process, allowing the agent to pick a new job.

    It's possible to configure the actions per Bamboo instance or per job

    It's possible to define the global Build Monitoring criteria (in the Admin menu), or override it per job.

    hey, this is an awesome plugin. My question is: will it be supported in 5.14.1?

    Works nicely on bamboo 5.12.3. Helps me a lot when custom plugin hangs.

    The documentation appears to be a blog post at http://blogs.atlassian.com/2012/03/hung-build-killer-plugin-bambo/ Also, I'm not clear why this isn't part of Bamboo itself?

    Great plugin, I've been using it since Bamboo 4.x. I hope to see support for Bamboo 5.8.x soon!

    We were using version 2.1.4 and were notified us that an upgrade to 3.0.7 was available. Since there was no Uninstall option I simply clicked to Upgrade, which failed with a message to check the logs. I went on the server, stopped the service and deleted both new and old jar files and restarted Bamboo. Then the Uninstall option appeared, so I was able to complete that and upload the new version successfully. Overall, we really like this plugin.

    Hi Jeanne, 2.1.4 was still a version 1 plugin which needs to be copied to WEB-INF/lib and bamboo restart. It has been converted to a version 2 atlassian plugin since 3.0.0 which can be updated through UPM. Maybe that's the reason for the inconvenience. Thanks, Chandler

    Hides process arguments from build log.


    Some commands may contain sensitive data in their argument list, so now only the process name of killed processes is printed to the logs, rather than the whole command line.
