When are early finishing containers in a build released?


Circle 2.0 with workflows.

If a build uses 2 containers and one container finishes in 3 minutes and the other container takes 5 minutes, when is the first container released to be used by other builds in the system? At the 3 minute mark (when it finishes) or the 5 minute mark (when all containers in the build finish)?

This is an annoying one to analyze unfortunately without some pretty contrived setup.


Hi CJ,

Containers are not released until the entire build—or, when using Workflows, job—finishes.

Hope this helps!
