I am new to bamboo. we are using default assigned agents in our project execution in bamboo. We have observed that few of test-cases get failed due to browser load issue in bamboo execution.

so what is the crux behind test-cases and agents? how many agents to be there for how many test-cases, so that all test-cases get executed smoothly?

for example: I have 100 test-cases inside one test-plan. Configured 48 agents and provided random sleep time for 120 sec in bamboo.yaml file, even 50% test-cases are getting failed due to browser load issue.

I have checked that, test-case is light weighted and execute fine on my local system. could anybody please help me to come out from this issue ?

Hello @WillingMath

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

As you haven't mentioned what type of Agent you are using, not the Bamboo version you are using we need to explore a few theories here.

If you are using Local agents (created on the Bamboo UI) you may be running out of system resources creating broken builds and resulting in failures. For that, we advise you to use Remote or Elastic Agents.

If that's not the case, you'll need to provide information from your instance, error messages etc.

For that, we advise you to open a support case with Atlassian at
