Why do my jobs on my Starter take sometime so much time ?


For our Starter Platform, we use instances which are Burstable. It means that credits are assigned to instances on AWS Cloud for CPU usage.

As an explanation, here is a part of the AWS documentation:

The CPU credits used depends on CPU utilization. The following scenarios all use one CPU credit:

  • One vCPU at 100% utilization for one minute

  • One vCPU at 50% utilization for two minutes

  • Two vCPUs at 25% utilization for two minutes

Regarding these information, if you started a lot of jobs on your server and had traffic with a high CPU usage, this means your server will consume your whole CPU Credits and performances will become really bad (example: jobs taking a lot of time).
