How to Determine if You Need Multiple Build Servers

- J.D. Meier, Jason Taylor, Alex Mackman, Prashant Bansode

If you have multiple build types all executing on a single build server, you can overload the build server. If this becomes an issue, consider executing different build types on different build servers.

A build can take a long time to execute, especially if the build is for a large project. If you are using Continuous Integration or frequent scheduled builds, it is possible that the build server will not be able to keep up with the volume of builds being generated. You can install multiple build servers to distribute the load. Assign different build types to each server to even out the build load.
