Branches queded for too long

Hi. My bamboo ondemand instance is taking to long to receive too receive the build request in the branches plan.

The agent log doesnt say anything about it other than: on i-7a5b9816' ready to take build from queue...

2013-09-13 03:44:31,800 INFO [tunnellogger-thread] [LocalAcceptor] [tunnelserver:26224-1-thread-234] Accepted a local connection on port 4527, tunnel age: 132s

When I run the master branch of the plan it starts inmediately with no problems. Any ideas?

Do you have automatic merging switched on? Because that would explain a lot as merging takes some time, during which Bamboo reports that branch is 'queued'.

Hi MArcin,

Yes it is. But I have tried with another repo and this same thing doesnt happen. This is specially happening with one of the repositories all of the residing in Bitbucket. The difference is that this one has much more branches than the other. However I tried disabling all the branches to see if it was a matter of the number of branches and didn help.

Yesterday one of the branched took 8 minutes to start.. is that normal?

It's possible that your branches get stuck waiting for a free worker thread and that's why it takes so long.

We have that issue on our radar.

How do you know or read in the logs that is the reason?
