In the middle of our deployment window we suddenly had Octopus spawning what I presume are internal cleanup tasks – i.e. 12k tasks named "Delete Release "
We were forced to cancel the tasks via the API to reduce the incredible SQL pressure it was causing and backlog of "real deployments’. It also seemed like it was popping the tasks off at a much lower rate than the 50/node (4x nodes) we have set. Not sure if this is an internal throttling for consistency. If it was, it was probably the right choice b/c the backend couldn’t take much more than what it was doing.
Q: What caused this?
Q How can we control WHEN this happens? Is there a way to force this in the API during an acceptable time period? I understand this kind of cleanup is necessary.
