OpenShift 3 builds get stuck with a status of New.

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • When I started a new s2i build the build never starts, it just gets stuck showing as "New" status.
  • All of my builds are taking a long time to start, I see all the builds hang around in a "New" status for 5+ minutes.
  • I am running OpenShift 3.3 and I see high CPU usage on the controller and builds are not starting, I see them with oc get builds but they are all showing a status of "New"


  • OpenShift Container Platform
    • 3.3 or before
