Jenkins : Least Load Plugin

Plugin Information

View Least Load on the plugin site for more information.

This plugin overrides the default Load Balancer behavior and assigns jobs to nodes with the least load


By default Jenkins tries to allocate a jobs to the last node is was executed on. This can result in nodes being left idle while other nodes are overloaded. This plugin overrides the default behavior and assigns jobs to nodes with the least load. The least load is defined as a node that is idle or the one with the most available executors. It is intended to provide the same functionality as the commercial plugin Even Scheduler Plugin


The plugin requires no global configuration it will just replace the default load balancer at startup. Jobs can be configured to utilize the default Jenkins load balancer if required.
