Bamboo plan is queued indefinitely

I can see:

#33 has been queued for 1235 minutes Manual build by Admin

It isn't going to build anytime soon. I've checked atlassian-bamboo.log and bambool.log but can't find any relevant errors. Is there something any of you can recommend?
Also, I'm running bamboo on a mounted remote file system which a regular user on the local machine has full privileges to. I'm thinking it's dying silently due to permission issues perhaps.
It seems to be working fine now - I set the temporary directory to a subdirectory on the same virtual file system rather than the host machine.

I used this guide to set the timeout higher for the wrapper - it was timing out and restarting each time, preventing the plan from competing.

Hi Aram,

Which version of Bamboo are you using? I suspect tht you might be facing either of the following bugs:

If you are using a later version of Bamboo and still affected, then it is most likely the connection pool is quite two low. The default value should be 100. Check this line in your HOME/bamboo-cfg.xml file

<property name="hibernate.c3p0.max_size">100</property>

Thanks, the value is 100 I'm using 4.4.4.

Do you have an agent with all capabilities for running the plan?

I believe so, since initially everything runs fine, then after a while the plans begin to hang... Restarting fixes it temporarily it seems.

Which part of Bamboo is running on a mounted remote file system? You should make sure that jms, cache etc are local - or you might have performance issues.

The whole /opt/bamboo folder is on a remote file system, and I have a symlink to it.

Hi Aram,

Can you provide us with a little snippet of the contents of the logs at a time when the build is queued forever? This will help in identifying the issue. Also do you have any third-party plugins installed
