Some background - I need to create a set of prallel jobs that will all be created AND run at the same time. the
parallel keyword can create jobs but due to the shared runner infrastructure there can be no guarantee the jobs will all be started at the same time.
So I followed the docs here: https://docs.gitlab.com/runner/configuration/runner_autoscale_aws_fargate in order to have a set of runners that we can autoscale to as many as needed [50, 100, and on upwards] but the default configuration provided in the docs seems to be only creating one runner at a time, rather than the lots I need.
The extra kicker is that I’ve created these using the
aws-cdk rather than through the console. The Gitlab docs don’t mention using a FargateService in order to create the desired number of instances, which is what I’m assuming is missing.
Has anyone hit this, or have any insights?
