We are experiencing some weird performance problems when attempting to build our projects thorugh TeamCity. Running the build on my local PC takes approximately 3 minutes (XP Pro SP2, 2GB RAM, Core 2 Duo @ 2.4GHz), however it's taking in excess of 16 minutes on the TeamCity Server - specs below:
- TeamCity Professional Version 3.1.2 (build 6881)
- Windows Server 2003 R2 Std, SP2
- Dual 3GHz Xeon Processors
- 2GB RAM
The server is a VM instance. I doubled the specs (was 1GB and 1 CPU) and ran the build again, however I saw no noticeable difference in the build time.
Is there anything else I can do to speed up the builds? I guess we could go to 4GB and 4 CPUs, but a bit reluctant considering that even though we have already doubled the specs of the server and haven't noticed any difference.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
