Frequently Asked Questions¶
Is Cirrus CI a delivery platform?¶
lint_task: script: yarn run lint test_task: script: yarn run test publish_task: only_if: $BRANCH == 'master' depends_on: - test - lint script: yarn run publish
CI agent stopped responding!¶
It means that Cirrus CI haven't heard from the agent for quite some time. In 99.999% of the cases it happens because of two reasons:
Your task was executing on Community Cluster. Community Cluster is backed by Google Cloud's Preemptible VMs for cost efficiency reasons and Google Cloud preempted back a VM your task was executing on. Cirrus CI is trying to minimize possibility of such cases by constantly rotating VMs before Google Cloud preempts them, but there is still chance of such inconvenience.
Your CI task used too much memory which led to a crash of a VM or a container.
Instance failed to start!¶
It means that Cirrus CI have made a successful API call to a computing service to allocate resources. But a requested resource wasn't created.
Instance timed out!¶
By default Cirrus CI has an execution limit of 60 minutes for each task. However, this default timeout duration can be changed
timeout_in field in
.cirrus.yml configuration file:
task: timeout_in: 90m ...
Only GitHub Support?¶
Cirrus CI itself doesn't provide any discounts except Community Cluster which is free for open source projects. But since Cirrus CI delegates execution of builds to different computing services, it means that discounts from your cloud provider will be applied to Cirrus CI builds.
