Multiple instances of remote agent possible on one server

Hello,

Is it possible to run more than one instance of a remote agent on one server?

The scenario is the following: we have a tool which is licensed to one machine but would be useful for multiple Bamboo servers across different projects. One idea would be to run the tool on that machine and link multiple Bamboo servers through remote agents on that machine. Different solution: link Bamboo servers, yet another solution: link multiple servers to one instance of remote agent.

 

Is any of the above solutions/ideas feasible? If yes, is it documented somewhere?

Open questions if possible: is the same version needed everywhere?

 

Thanks,

Rene

Yes, you can run as many agents as you want (I've ran a full 100 on a single machine once), but you need to specify a separate home directory for each agent via the bamboo-home property.

java -jar -Dbamboo.home=/home/bamboo/agent-1 atlassian-bamboo-agent-installer-X.X-SNAPSHOT.jar http://bamboo-server:8085/bamboo/agentServer

 java -jar -Dbamboo.home=/home/bamboo/agent-2 atlassian-bamboo-agent-installer-X.X-SNAPSHOT.jar http://bamboo-server:8085/bamboo/agentServer

Hello, 

Yes it's possible to run multiple instances you can just make another folder and install the client there.

 Bamboo Remote agents get automatically updated.

You can run for multiple bamboo servers an agent also in one server if necessary. But in this case you would probably be breaking the License agreement as it says you should just use one license per system. 

In general this is how you would do it in linux for example:

sudo su - bamboo

cp  atlassian-bamboo-agent-installer-X.X-SNAPSHOT.jar agent-1

cp  atlassian-bamboo-agent-installer-X.X-SNAPSHOT.jar agent-2

cd agent-1

java -jar atlassian-bamboo-agent-installer-X.X-SNAPSHOT.jar http://bamboo-host-server:8085/bamboo/agentServer/

cd ../agent-2

java -jar atlassian-bamboo-agent-installer-X.X-SNAPSHOT.jar http://bamboo-host-server:8085/bamboo/agentServer/

That's a good information.
