I have been using TeamCity 4.5, and have been having some issues with TeamCity transferring information to build agents, be it artifacts or source code. First, with resolving artifacts, I have a build configuration that has close to 2 GB in 4,000 files which it publishes as artifacts and when I try to access these artifacts from another build configuration, it takes a very long time (over 3 hours) to download the artifacts into the checkout directory (and we are using a gigabit network with all participating build machines using gigabit NICs). Is there anyway I can speed up this artifact download?
The source code transfer isn't too bad...I am guessing there are improvements I can make on my build LAN, but by comparison to the artifacts mentioned above, 2GB of source code from Perforce generally takes 10-15minutes transferring from the master to the build agent.
Any suggestions would welcome....thanks for any help in advance
