      Description

      The current PrioritySorter plugin does not consider the executing jobs. So it is possible for a job with a lower priority to be started even when there is a higher priority job already executing.

      A great enhancement to PrioritySorter would be to:

      • prevent a job from starting if there is already a job with a higher priority executing.
      • be able to configure this feature on or off. Some sites will want the current behavior.

      One usage scenario is:

      • I have a set of jobs for the integration branch and another set of jobs for the trunk branch (say to do a production release)
      • the int jobs are kicked off by changes to the SCM
      • but when I need to run the trunk jobs, they need to run immediately, i.e. the int jobs can wait.
      • To do that, I set the priority on the trunk jobs to a higher value.
      • I kick off the trunk jobs
      • if an int job comes in at that point, it is sorted last in the queue but also isn't allowed to run until the higher priority trunk jobs are done.
