CircleCI Ideas

Deploy Artifact Speedup

Sometimes it's handy to upload many small artifact files e.g coverage reports. This runs in serial and is very slow compared to uploading one large file.

As an example, my coverage reports are 8mb/400 files. On my last build 36s was spent uploading artifacts out of a total 1:23 for the whole build.

    Having a similar issue where it takes 45 seconds for our 5m 30s build.

     

    Additionally, the "Uploading Artifacts" will randomly take 10+ minutes, in one instance it took 1h 28m.
