All my builds are being queud even though I don't have any build running. It takes up to 10 minutes for the build to start. Why do I experince this behavior?

    Hi Martin,

    I've switched your account to a new build environment. It's in beta now. We are going to move all paying customers to this new environment till the end of this month.

    Builds should start almost instantly and, in general, you should see performance increase by 3-5 times depending on project. It would be great to know your results!

    If you notice any weirdness please let me know.

    Hi I'm experiencing the same issue, build queued for over 2 hours... We're testing out appveyor at the moment, and been having a few issues getting the project started, now stuck as can't test any builds. Assistance appreciated.

    @matt, we've been using AppVeyor for a few months, and I can't praise it enough, granted though, this seems like the most severe problem we've experienced since using it.

    Give them a chance, so far we've found the support first class. I suspect it's just a little early it's only 04:53 in Vancouver.

    Thanks @James Skimming, looks a good setup, should work well for us when this is resolved. Not put off yet, not too early here ;), but us British are notoriously good at queuing....

    It should be working now. We've cancelled some pending builds stuck in the queue, so if you see them as "failed" please restart them.

    Hi all,

    First of all, I'd like to apologize for today's AppVeyor downtime and thank you for your patience!

    Lately, there were too many issues on Azure environment with stability and performance (which were out of our control), so we decided to run a new environment for private projects.
    The new environment is running on dedicated hardware with faster CPUs, SSD drives, 1 GB network and it uses Hyper-V for creating isolated build workers.
    It's been in beta testing for some time and showed very good results - customers report 3-5 times performance increase on average.

    We are moving all private projects to the new environment and you guys are next. There is no downtime, the only thing you'll notice is builds start almost instantly with faster build time :)
    However, if you notice any weirdness while being there please let us know.

    Let us know about your results! If you are really impressed drop a message here on forums or tweet (@AppVeyor).

    Hi Feodor

    Initial feedback is considerably faster build times, somewhere between 2-3 times faster.

    Good work.
