      Description

      As soon as more than a handful builds get queued, the entire GUI crawls to a halt.

      The reason is that the executor thread running the "Queue.maintain()" method is holding the exclusive lock on the queue, but starts a very time-consuming loop on creating the list of applicable hosts matching a certain label.

      Due to this, every Jenkins GUI page and every method that needs access to the Queue gets delayed by ~30 seconds; with the delay rising the more builds are in the queue, due to Queue.maintain() being called more often.

      The server only becomes responsive again, once the entire queue is empty. Setting the server to "shutdown now" does not help.

      A usual stack trace when this occurs looks like this (first from /threadDump; the second from jstack during a different time):

        }}

      As you can see, the Queue.maintain() method does finish successfully, but needs more than 30 seconds for it. The server does not stop working and will return to normal once the queue has been fully processed.

      We have ~20 nodes with 12 executor slots each running (= 240 executor threads). There is an equal amount of jobs running, but not all of them consume CPU time on the host (most are idling and waiting for certain events).

      This issue has occurred since upgrading from 1.509.1 to 1.509.3.

      Thanks in advance.
