Slave boxes are diff from the master. Jenkins copies all the files
from the master to the slave then back up to the master. Using a
chunk of bandwidith and disk IO on both the slaves and the master.
Every job requires IO on the master and a lot of it. As the number
slaves goes up so does the IO on the master. The current EC2
isn't holding it own with load. Spikes can literately take it
and even when it is idle it still is showing a ton of IO from the
visiting the site. The question is with the limited budget what can
What we really want for the master is a dedicated machine with a sas
