Ticket #3909 (new enhancement)
Support flexible "Job Weight" (>=N)
|Reported by:||jdsiiro||Owned by:||jdsiiro|
Currently, we can specify a single "Job Weight" so that a job consumes more than one executor on a slave. A useful extension to that would be a "+" notation, whereby a job could specify a minimum number of executors, but it would expand to consume all available executors on the given node.
For example, a job could specify a weight of "4+", meaning that it wants as many executors as possible, with a minimum of 4 executors. This would allow us to enable more efficient parallel builds, now that we have slaves with 4, 6, and 8 executors.
