Jenkins is a Java-based integration server that can be used to monitor the executions of various recurrent jobs, as they are often deployed when developing apps or running tasks by cron.
Jenkins features a continuous integration system which makes it mainly useful for continuously testing or building software projects. As such, developers can easily integrate their changes and generate a new build – since this process is automated, the overall productivity is increased.
Additionally, Jenkins can be used to monitor executions of externally-run tasks (like cron or procmail ones), even if it is deployed on a remote machine. Due to this feature, you can use Jenkins as a dashboard of your existing automation system.
Furthermore, you can also build a maven2/3 project, as Jenkins can reduce the configuration considerably, once it has analyzed your POM files. A multi-configuration project can also be built, which is especially suitable if you want to test it on several environments or platform-specific builds.
When it comes to managing credentials, Jenkins supports not only usernames with passwords, but also certificates or SSH usernames with private keys, and you can bind any type of credential to your domains. Also, there are several types of supported specifications for each domain, namely hostname, hostname:port or URI scheme.
You can also rely on Jenkins to monitor a wide range of data for each of your nodes, such as the architecture type, clock difference, free disk space, free swap or temp space, as well as the response time.
Moreover, Jenkins displays various environmental details to assist you with troubleshooting, while also checking the resource usage levels and informing you whether you need more machines for your projects.
Last but not least, Jenkins can prepare your computer for shutdown, as it stops executing new builds as soon as you require it to.
