We’ve been running our gitlab-ce install out of one docker container with docker-compose, like so
That’s been working fine, albeit a little slow, but easily bearable.
We’ve recently moved to using a swarm, with a gluster backend. We’re still in the process of fine tuning gluster, and as it’s a bit slower than normal IO access, we’d like to speed up our gitlab as much as possible.
I’ve been looking at this option, of running it with 4 replicated runners
Also looking at this option, of splitting out the postgresql and redis containers. Although, I am having trouble seamlessly moving the data over in this option
Has anyone got any experience of moving from a single container install to a multi container install?
One question I’ve got about the multiple containers running the gitlab-runners, will that only speed up the CI/CD elements? We aren’t using the CI/CD elements, so just wondering if adding containers to run multiple gitlab-runners will help us at all?
Any help, or tips, greatly appreciated.
