Bamboo: Agent build multiple plans concurrently?

Is there a mechanism by which an agent can build multiple plans concurrently, rather than consecutively?

I know we can scale by adding more agents, but that's not an ideal scaling mechanism, as opposed to being able to have multiple builds going

You can however, add more agents to a single box and give them different working directories. We have 3 remote agents set up on one of our 24 core build boxes. Handles it quite well.

No, an agent always builds a single build. You have to add more agents if you want more concurrent builds.

There are some logistic problems when you have several agents on the same host:

- duplicated workspaces on the same machine that cost HDD space and network traffic (for expensive HDD and with GB checkouts this is big problem);

- licensing cost for bamboo (license should be more clear that you pay per jobs you run in parallel not per build server);

yeah, and you should pay for additional agents!!!

I am new to Bamboo (a couple of months now). WHY is a Bamboo agent limited to only one build per agent? When will this be fixed? This is very disappointing...

Jenkins has no problem running multiple builds on a single agent as long as the host has the resources to handle it.

I was able to make builds across plans run concurrently by adding more local agents.
