Gitlab runner cloning super slow

Since yesterday we have been having performance issues with gitlab runner - cloning repository suddenly takes up to 40 minutes, where previously it was almost instant. The same with uploading the artifacts from the CI build.

Am I the only one? I reported the issue, but I am worried it might take a long time before someone looks at it.

Hi, we have the same problem. Our CI/CD Pipeline times out every time. Did work flawlessly until yesterday.

I wish there was anything written on the gitlabstatus :slight_smile:

Hi, same here, any updates?

It should be fixed by now:

Thanks all for noticing this and sharing it on the forum!


Is this issue already fixed?
since i’m still facing this issue, my CI/CD often get timeout because it stuck on cloning repo

I’ve just had this on a local git branch (not yet pushed), while running gitlab-runner locally to debug the task.

Any chance this is just something to do with gitlab-runner itself?
