Simultaneous/Concurrent builds on a single build agent

Our team has a project with multiple build configurations: dev-tip, release-candidate, production, and eventually more sporadic tasks like javadoc execution, functional tests. I'd like to run builds on an agent concurrently, at least for different build configurations.

An example would be an agent performing a dev build as well as a release-candidate build (separate code branches). Or performing two builds for different projects. I realize two builds for the same build configuration may not be possible - given that work is stored on the agent by some sort of VCS root hash.

Any help/thoughts... thanks!

You can install several copies of build agent on the same PC. But all of them should have different names and different ownPort setting.
