Excessive identical job parallelism in workflow

See original GitHub issue

RedEye folk,

Could you take a look at your testing workflow. When it kicks off it is occupying over half of our organization’s available runners, and has starved out some of the other projects.

  • Please document the purpose of 12 identical jobs running in parallel in the workflow. e.g., the parallel tests are non-deterministic.
  • Please consider using max-parallel to limit the matrix to a couple of jobs at a time if this parallelism isn’t necessary.

Thank, @felddy

Sorry about this. I will reduce the amount of runners that the cypress tests are using.

Sorry about this. I will reduce the amount of runners that the cypress tests are using.

Please don’t forget to specify the purpose of running multiple, identical copies of the same job. (The value of containers from the matrix strategy is not used as far as I can tell, which is why I am saying that all the jobs are identical.)
