Ability to increase Pipelines memory further than 8GB

Issue #17260 open
Leonardo Montiel staff created an issue

In some use cases, it's necessary to have more than 8GB available to build. For example, if you are using node modules (which are huge) + a bunch of services, you are pretty much certain to hit a memory roadblock.

It would be great if it was possible to use a "size:3x" flag of sorts, which would allow increasing Pipelines' memory further than 8GB

    Thanks for reaching out and for the suggestion.

    We're currently working on higher priority projects so it is unlikely that we'll support this anytime soon. In the meantime however, I'll open this ticket to gauge the interest of other users in seeing the same thing.

    Issue #17790 was marked as a duplicate of this issue.

    This issue is requesting support for more granular memory limits (e.g. 0.5x, 4x etc.)

    Hi Aneita, I am an example of a user affected by this issue. My pipeline is to spin up environment using docker-compose then run functional tests using Selenium on headless Firefox. I am using few Java containers, ElasticSearch and few different pretty heavy containers. The 8GB limit is not enough. I am getting the: Container 'docker' exceeded memory limit. error. Flag size:3x+ would solve my problem. Until then I am experimenting with Gitlab CI Runners, as this is blocker to me. Thanks !

    This issue forced us to abandon our proof-of-concept using Bitbucket Pipelines. We have moved to using AWS CodeBuild which has no such limitations.
