- CloudBees Jenkins Platform (Legacy)
The symptoms above can be related to several different causes:
Your instance works perfectly, but suddenly starts throwing these warnings in the logs and finally degrades so that a restart is needed.
- You have to correct the GC and memory settings for your instance, as well as adjust parameters. These parameters are described in the article Prepare Jenkins for Support
Plugin version mismatch
You upgraded some plugins, used them in your builds and then downgraded them.
- In this case the resolution is related to the detection of the plugin that is failing, usually by reviewing the missing field, and upgrading the plugin to a version including it.
