It not just about the provider. I would need to see the bandwidth
charts on the current Jenkins but I assume Just about any provider
can handle it bandwidth needs. But the server Jenkins Master needs
to run on. EC2 isn't cutting it. My testing box is a basic Sata
drive and it is running much faster but there is no user load on the
box. We really need a box with raid 10 drives in it to handle the
high IO needs.
the stats of the jenkins slave we (my employer) provide. This is a
production load. Quick analysis shows that IO is limiting at times, but
the high IO peaks correlate to the swap. So adding more than 8GB RAM
would lessen the requirement on the IO. Note that it is currently
running on our SATA SAN, but I don't know the RAID config from the top
of my head.
