Because our ye old bamboo instance is starting to grow outside of its pot, we are looking to scale things up a little bit.
Mainly because performance is degrading (CPU's are strugling) and we are about to enable branch builds - which would increase the need for resources even more.
Our current situation looks as follows:
The server is usually busy with compiling our Java sources and doing GWT compiles (multiple threads per compile).
Our first idea is to increase the hardware to about 16 cores and 16-32 GB ram.
Adding additional remote agents seems like a very expensive solution as we would need additional licenses as well as several additional hosts with at least 2 cores with 2-4GB ram and 300GB storage each.
Givens this setup, would you think that scaling up the hardware would result in a better performance experience? If not are there other options?
