Unique Templated Configuration System

Pulse uses a unique templated configuration system:

  • Define configuration just once and share it among multiple projects or agents.
  • Eliminate duplicated configuration (e.g. a nightly build is nearly identical to a continuous build).
  • Deeply integrated with the web interface.

Smart and Easy Upgrades

Keeping up to date with the latest Pulse release is simple:

  • A new version automatically detects data to update.
  • A wizard guides you through the upgrade process.
  • Agents upgrade automatically when the master is upgraded.

Automatic Daily Backups

Pulse protects your investment in your server configuration by backing it up automatically for you daily:

  • All configuration is captured at 5am each morning.
  • Control the backup schedule via a Cron-like expression.
  • Restore backups using a wizard.

Agent Utilisation Statistics

Each build agent has a "statistics" tab that lists various statistics for the agent:

  • See how many builds an agent has run.
  • Compare average build times on different agents.
  • A pie chart allows you to easily identify an under- or over-utilised agent.
