Fix: Jenkins not executing jobs (pending - waiting for next executor)

Fix: Jenkins not executing jobs (pending - waiting for next executor)

Go to Manage Jenking -> Configure System and increase the number of executor from 0 to 1.

Check the slave node configuration. "Usage" field should be "Utilize this slave as much as possible" instead of "Leave this machine for tied jobs only".

The Jenkins admin console can run, even with the Master node offline. This can happen when Jenkins runs out of disk space.

To confirm, do the following

go to Jenkins -> Manage Jenkins -> Manage Nodes
examine the "master" node to see if it is offline. It may be reporting that the master node is out of disk space.
