Gitlab jobs not parallel

Hi,

According to the documenation, the jobs should run in parallel in the same stage. When no stage is provided, the default stage will be test.

I tried both with defining the same stage: … in .yml config file and without defining the stage. In both cases I see that my jobs / builds are NOT done in parallel! I created 2 runners. 1 runner with the tag ‘production’ the other one with the tag ‘testing’.

.

In my .gitlab-ci.yml file I defined 2 jobs, one job using ‘production’ tag and the other one using ‘testing’:

before_script:
    - composer update
    
testing:
  script:
    - vendor/bin/phpunit
  tags:
    - testing

building:
  script:
    - bin/console cache:clear --env=prod
    - bin/console assetic:dump --env=prod
  tags:
    - production

Why are the jobs not ran in parallel? They still wait on the other one (saying: Pending...) :frowning: . See screenshot below for more info:

I’m using Gitlab omnibus installation version 8.6.6.

Thanks.

Kind regards,
Melroy

What’s the concurrent value set to in your /etc/gitlab-runner/config.toml? I was tripped up by this initially to. I think it defaults the concurrency to 1. See docs for more details.

If you edit that file, it should be reloaded automatically and builds will parallelize as per the concurrent setting.

Thanks, it worked for me!
