Hudson FAQ

How do I restart Hudson nodes that have hung?

  1. Log-in the node as either the hudson user, or as a user that has sudo privileges.
  2. Kill the Hudson java process
  3. On the host status page in Hudson, click the button in the upper-right corner that says "this node is back online". Pushing that should cause Hudson to start using the node again. If that fails, you can always click the "Disconnect" link to cause Hudson to kill the slave process, then there should be a "Reconnect" button that appears below the node name/description.

How do I start a Hudson job?

  • If you have log-in privileges on Hudson, then on the main page shows an icon next to each job summary. This icon shows a clock with a green triangle. Clicking on this icon will launch the corresponding Hudson job.
