Hi @poovaraj

Let me try to answer your questions.

How to run more than one job in single machine concurrently using single agent?

This is not possible, not using a single agent. You need as many agents available as the number of jobs you want to run in parallel.

Bamboo has two types of agents:

  • Local agents
    • They are threads of the Bamboo server and run with the same user permissions set for the user running the server.
    • You can set numerous local agents. As many as your server has resources to handle.
  • Remote agents
    • They are independent processes and can run on different machines other than the server.
    • You are limited to have only X number of them online depending on what license you have.

How to run concurrent jobs?

  1. Make sure you have more than one agent configured. They can be remote or local ones.
  2. Configure concurrent builds as described in Configuring concurrent builds - Atlassian Documentation

I hope that answers your question.

Thanks for providing information.

  • The scenario is the following : I have only one Remote machine (MAC OS) which is having speicifc software license and Bamboo is installed Ubuntu machine, So I want to run more than one job in Remote Machine (Mac OS) concurrently.  Please let me know if it is any other feature avaiable ?
  • Is it possible to configure more than one agent in single remote machine (MAC OS) ?

Note : I don't want to use multiple remote agent

Hey @poovaraj,

Provided you have enough remote agent licenses you can absolutely setup multiple remote agents on one machine.  We have a Windows server (VM) setup that is currently running three remote agents, and each agent is capable of running a job so on that single machine we can have up to three jobs running at the same time.

However, if you are looking for a single agent to be able to run more that one job concurrently, as @Daniel Santos stated above this simply just isn't possible.

I hope that helps!
