distributing jobs intelligently using bamboo

Hi,

i am running on bamboo 5.7.2, i run bamboo on one local agent and 2 remote agents. currently my builds distribution is hardcoded i.e i have hardcoded bamboo to run few jobs in default/local agent(bamboo server) and few on 2 remote agents. 

1) I do not know what exactly is master slave concept of jenkins but ppl talk a lot about it, so can we do that in bamboo? if yes could you explain in detail?

2) my intention is if i have 10 jobs running out of which if the 5th job takes 50 minutes to run and 3.4th takes 5 mins to run each, then bamboo should run the long job i.e 5th on the default agent and remaining should be distributed on the remote. can this be possible?

  1. Master-slave concept of Jenkins is just the same as Bamboo Server - Remote agent topology. 
  2. No, it's not possible right now

 

Is there any closer way to achieve the second one?

You can dedicate job 5 to be executed on local agent by providing some capability on local agent which is not exists at remote ones and job 5 has requirement to use this capability. But it will not prevent job 5 from waiting in queue until local agent is busy with other jobs
