manually add 'x' number of extra concurrent jobs. ie. scale up / scale down concurrent jobs.


we generally are ok with our 2x paid concurrent jobs. Now, when it comes to the end of a sprint and the testing team goes nuts we find lots of bugs etc and all the team members go and create their branches, push their code and then PR their code.

Each team member might have a few AV projects that kick off, per PUSH. and even more when they submit the PR.

Our queue now gets really busy :( we end up cancelling each other's jobs :) :)

so .. it would be really kewl if we could manually bump up the concurrent job count to 5 or 10 .. for those few hours, then pump it back down to 2. And of course, pay a reasonable price for that time the more jobs are scaled up.

We know you can do it, Feodor!!! :)

    Yes, this is the great idea! I've been thinking about the same just recently.

    Though for billing simplicity I was looking into per-day pricing. What do you think?

    per-day could hurt (based on the cost of a per-day).

    like for us yesterday, we needed more conc-jobs for about a ... 2 hour window only.

    and we would have pumped that up to 5 or 6

    What's the average build length?

    10-15 mins :(

    • git repo is about 100MB
    • restoring .net packages and node_modules is slow....
    • whatever the node compiling crap is .. it's slow......
    • integration tests on certain branches take around 3-4 mins.

    EDIT: other AV projects take about 3-8 mins (when not doing integration tests or not doing node).
