What are the pros and cons of running builds in a docker container as opposed to running them in the native agent environment? We use a limited amount of agents to ensure the server is not overburdened. Would this allow for more plans beeing build parallel then the agents usually allow?
The main advantage of using Docker runner is ability to have one remote agent and handle builds with different capabilities. You don't need to install different versions of Python or Java or whatever to your agent to fulfil builds requirements.
