Scaling Network Connections from the Jenkins Master
Large Jenkins installations should use agents to distribute build load. Yet the master can still receive and send lots of data over the network channel to agents, causing scalability issues as build logs, artifacts and test results are streamed. New tools can help you identify protocol-specific load issues coming from the Jenkins core or various plugins. Jenkins core developers are also working on alternate cloud storage for some of this data, permitting it to be streamed directly to or from the agent so that the master need only handle metadata. Come learn how these tools and features can help you manage performance-critical installations.
