There are occasionally issues where the tasks in the commit queue appear to hang. Since the default timeouts are around 2 hours, this can cause large back ups in the queue. We could add more aggressive timeouts to the tasks in the queue so that they timeout much earlier. The lint tasks already do this and timeout around 40 minutes.
We should look at the historic runtimes of the tasks to pick appropriate timeouts.
As a server engineer,
I want hung commit queue tasks to time out earlier,
So that the commit queue does not get blocked for a long period of time waiting for a task that is just going to timeout anyway.
- All tasks in the commit-queue have a timeout of under 1 hour.
