Request to have the ability to stagger matrix builds by a certain amount of time

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      I have some matrix jobs configured, but when I run the build - they all launch at precisely the same time. This is great however, there is a stage where it is transferring large amounts of data for automated sanity, which results in a bottleneck and increases the build time significanlty.
      It would be good to set a stagger of x minutes to allow one builds' transfer to complete before the next one starts .. or at least reduce the concurrency.
      I have tried the Advanced 'Quiet Period' however, it doesn't seem to work for matrix builds - I have tried many tests - unsuccessfully.
      Thanks

          I have the same issue. I'd like to run a certain number of configurations in parallel which all hit our Stash server. Right now I'm forced to require the builds to run sequentially, which means that if one slave is tied up, it holds up all the others that could be running on available slaves.

          Has there been any progress on this request? I am in the same situation, this addition would be helpful.
