Here’s how I’ve been monitoring my Jenkins setup…
A combination of Nestor + watch + Terminator » one view for monitoring failing builds, one view for executors status, and one view for job queue. A summary of Jenkins status info on a small screen estate that I can place at the corner of my workspace.
If you want to set up something similar, here are the commands: (assume JENKINS_URL is already set)
watch -c “nestor dashboard | grep FAIL”
watch nestor executor
watch nestor queue
