Caused by: svn: E175002: SSL peer shut down incorrectly

Environment

  • CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise

  • SVN

Resolution

This can be caused by:

  • Large files (>20mb) being committed.

  • Large commits.

  • Timeout on Server hosting SVN being too low (nginx, apache).

Fixes include:

  • Avoiding committing files larger than 20mb. Suggestion is to use something like Amazon S3 for this instead.

  • Splitting commits into smaller revisions.

  • Increasing timeout on HTTP Server (nginx, apache).
