This is an exciting development for me, as CTO of CloudBees. As a founder of Jenkins, I’m...

Health Check-up for Your Jenkins

Just like human beings, Jenkins benefits from periodic health check-ups. It helps you establish baselines if you develop performance problems later, and sometimes it even lets you discover a problem and nip it in the bud before it becomes a serious one. In this post, I’m going to talk about a couple of very accessible tools that let you do the check-up by yourself. The first thing...

This year, we kept some of the questions the same, so...

In case of Git server plugin, it allows other plugins to easily embed Git server functionality (via JGit ) — create/manipulate Git repositories in the Jenkins server, expose it via SSH and HTTP...
