Amazon Elastic File System warnings and recommendations

Issue

Environment

  • CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise (CJE)
  • CloudBees Jenkins Operations Center (CJOC)
  • Jenkins
  • High Availability (HA)
  • Amazon Elastic File System (EFS)

Resolution

The things we know about Amazon Elastic File System for CJP:

  • Amazon Elastic File System Max IO is required for client masters, Amazon Elastic File System standard IO is NOT fast enough for masters, even for small masters
  • Amazon Elastic File System Standard IO seem to be OK for Ops Center

The general advise is not to use Amazon Elastic File System, but if you must - then read through this

  1. Use the right performance mode (on creation)
  2. Increase the storage (as that also increases the IOPS under the covers) - this is done by writing files to Amazon Elastic File System (!)
