Jenkins: build timeouts #3157

The following build message occurred in multiple PRs I have seen (e.g. #3150):

Sending interrupt signal to process


It seems that we are increasingly hitting the 10 minute Jenkins limit (when a build has no log output for 10 minutes).

timeout(activity: true, time: 10, unit: 'MINUTES') {

I'm not sure it will help to increase the limit, as some of the killed jobs show that they are running for 5+ hours. We can try to increase the limit and see whether we are only exceeding it by very little. Otherwise I think we will need to evaluate what's causing the builds to take forever and work on a better solution.

The fact that many builds are currently failing (and being re-built) because of problems with our Jenkins ironically puts even more load on the systems, so the effect seems to amplify.

Thank you for creating this issue!

@Mistreated can you try to change the timeout?

I took the liberty to test/increase the timeout in my PR, as it keeps hitting this limit. Seems like it is usually a build on a7 (which is slower) and I have not yet seen it on v2 (which is presumably faster).
