How to keep Bamboo agent always online?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Locating important directories and files

Hi there,

I am new to Bamboo cloud. And I just setup the remote agent in my build server. Somehow, I found it will automatically go offline aound 15 minutes. Did I miss anything or do anything wrong? My question is...

  1. Is that normal for the agent goes offline automatically? How can I fix it?
  2. Is there any way to restart it? Now I just use the installation command line everytime to restart it.

Thanks.

Regards,

What do you see in the agent logs?

Are you using your own remote agent or an Elastic Bamboo agent?   If it's the latter, then it sounds like expected behavior as the default timeout for idle Elastic Bamboo EC2 instances is set at 10 minutes.   This can be modified in the Elastic Bamboo configuration screen under Automatic elastic instance management.

Thank you guys. I just figured out the problem by myself. Actually, what I need to do is just execute the command line "bamboo-agent-home/bin/bamboo-agent.sh start" to start the bamboo background process. Otherwise, the process will be stopped automatically if it is auto started by the installation.

Hope this also can helps others new to Bamboo. smile
