I’d like to submit a feature request where steps that fail because of an AGENT_STOP exit code are automatically retried.
When an agent is stopped, we see
Received cancellation signal, interrupting in the log. As this can happen at any time, this can interrupt any hook, plugin, or command that runs. This makes it tricky to implement with the automatic_retry logic at a step level.
Looking at the timeline of such affected steps, it looks like Buildkite knows when a agent is stopped:
Command Exit Status 1 Command Exit Signal None: The process intercepted the signal and exited with the above status Exit Signal Reason AGENT_STOP: The agent sent the signal to the process because the agent was stopped
Given that Buildkite seems to know that the agent was stopped, it would help us a lot if these steps could be automatically retried.
