Impact of too many "Steps :: Running total" #4356

benprim ·

We were wondering what is/could be the impact of this alert "Steps :: Running total".
we noticed that this reports for all steps running at the same time on server + agents.
What could be the issue ? too much cpu / mem on the server ? too many locks ?
We tried to offload a lot of master steps to light weight Linux agent to ease the server so we thought about changing that alert to "Steps :: Running steps on node" but before doing that we wanted to know if it could be of some use to keep an eye on "total" (but with a much bigger limit)

This simply means that the build grid is currently running more steps that you specified in alert plugin. This normally does not matter as long as you did not see obvious slow down of the system.
