Can I have hundreds of bamboo plans in one instance?

We're in a situation where we have hundreds (600+) of maven projects that we maintain. Will bamboo handle this huge amount of plans Or will things get out of hand? These projects all have common dependencies so some VCS changes will trigger a LOT of downstream jobs. Is there a recommended maximum or can anyone verify that they've successfully tried this?

This is no problem in principle, though the minimum CPU and memory requirements depend on the size and complexity of your plans, see Bamboo Best Practice - System Requirements for some Hardware considerations:

  • Will your builds have functional tests as part of the plans?
  • Are your plans executed simultaneously? If so, how many plans will be running at any given time?
  • What are the requirements for your running builds, for example do they need large amounts of memory/disk/swap space?
  • How many users will be using Bamboo at any given time? Like any web application, the system resource needed is proportional to the load experienced by the server.
  • How many local agents do you plan on running?

According to the provided table, your requirements would probably ask for the outlined 16 core, 8 GB RAM, all remote agents setup, which can accommodate:

  • 1000s of plans
  • Frequent plan branches
  • High concurrency
  • High server use

According with the documentation you need a good configuration to do that.
