using Gitlab Free
today I received a notification that I should buy addition CI/CD minutes for my group. So I looked up why I got that notification and it turned out that
my CI/CD minute usage for November is 74% used, but I dont understand how and why.
I looked at the pipelines quota page and saw that only one project is apparently responsible for all the used minutes. It’s a game project I am currently working on.
296/400 minutes have been used since November. Now what I don’t understand is this:
I have another PC which serves as a buildmachine, TeamCity is installed on that machine and as of now I only have on configuration for that very project I am working on.
So far the project is setup for manual triggers, which means I trigger a build out from my IDE, and not by any pushes to the repository. And this month I havent triggered any manual builds.
How are the CI/CD minutes used when I am not even building anything? Or is a push to the repository, even when the buildmachine is not powered on, enough to count as usage?
