Drone

Build is so slow on Raspberry 4

Hello,

I tried to setup a drone agent on my Raspberry 4 (at home) linked to my drone server on my VPS in the cloud. I found build very slow so i tried to add a second agent, an ARM vps on the cloud too. I can see that build on two vps are very fast, but on my raspberry it takes more than 2 minutes (against <10 secondes for others).

Server : VPS on cloud ( 1 vCPU - 2GB ram)
Linux 4.9.0-9-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.168-1+deb9u3 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Agent 1 : Raspberry PI 4
Linux 4.19.66-v7l+ #1253 SMP armv7l GNU/Linux
Agent 2 : VPS on cloud (ARM64-2GB)
Linux 4.4.127-mainline-rev1 #1 SMP aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

My drone.yml

kind: pipeline
type: docker

platform:
  arch: amd64
  os: linux

steps:

  image: docker
  volumes:

  path: /var/run/docker.sock
  commands:
  - echo "Salut ça va ?"
  - echo "Bonjour"
  - hostname
  - apk update && apk add curl
  - curl 'https://api.ipify.org?format=json'
  - sleep 30

  commands:
  - echo "Salut ça va ?"

Arm64 is handled by the server, arm64 is handled by agent 2 and arm is handled by agent 2.
With this specific pipeline, build time are

My agent docker:

docker run -d \
  --name drone-worker-prod-1 \
  --volume /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
  -e DRONE_RPC_PROTO=https \
  -e DRONE_RPC_HOST= \
  -e DRONE_RPC_SECRET= \
  -e DRONE_OPEN=true \
  -e DRONE_RPC_DEBUG=true \
  -e DRONE_RUNNER_NAME=${HOSTNAME} \
  -p 3001:3000 \
  drone/agent:1.4.0

I would like to understand why it takes 6 more time on my raspberry to make theses easy tasks.

Thank you :slight_smile:

Works without problems on my Raspberry:


Maybe apk update/add is slow on your setup.

Hello,

Thank very much for your try. :slight_smile:

I will update and see what happens
