How does the simple disk usage plugin work


  • How long does the calculation usually take?
  • How is the calculation triggered?
  • Error Message: (not yet calculated, please try again soon)



Disk-usage-simple plugin is designed to avoid creating IO load on large Jenkins installations, so it run as a low priority background process with sleep periods. This result in significant time to compute disk usage. It uses a “du -h” operation in the jobs folder for each job. The disk usage is calculated once every three minutes.
