We have a number of teamcity projects that have dependancies on each other when triggering certain builds.
The issues we are experiencing are that these builds seem to take forever to complete (ie. >5 mins per snapshot dependancy), it appears to be taking a lot of time checking for changes (from Visual Studio) for each dependancy (in the chain) and as a result, the agents (4 of them in total) remain Idle most of the time until the build are triggered.
Is this the normal chain of events for snapshot dependancies and does the time taken sound reasonable?
Are there ways to improve the overall speed of dependancy builds?
Any suggestions/comments much appreciated.
