What is a Jenkins Executor and how can I best utilize my executors



  • Dominik Panas

    What about parallel steps? For example i have job stage1-stage2a-stage2b-stage3 where stages 2 are parallel. Do i have to make some additional executors to effectively run those prallel stages? And if so, then if i have 2 machines and each has 2 executors, how to prevent running 2 jobs on the same machine (on step1)?

    The new executor is used whenever you use the `node` step. If parallel branches do not request their own nodes they should be running by the same executor.
