I wonder how heavy the build processes are on the cpu..
I set up a single machine offering many different services (also including teamcity webapp and teamcity buildAgent) and I'm worrying a bit about overall performance when the teamcity agent will enter production stage.
Being a virtual machine, I will be able to add one virtual cpu if the load will be too much.. but I wonder if it also possible to set some configuration option so that the build processes are started with a high nice value. Another option I can think of would be to start the build-agent main process with a nice value, but I don't know if that will be considered when the agent will span the build processes.
Could anybody please cast some light on this?
Thank you and best regards.
