      Description

      By default new ec2 instances are launched when not enough nodes are available to process jobs in the build queue. This is working great for us.

      The question I have is if there is a way to have a job wait in the build queue for a defined period of time before a new instance is launched?

      The reason I am asking is there are many times a job will finish on an existing instance and if we had just had a wait of 60 seconds we could have saved launching a new instance which would run until the idle timeout occurs.

          Currently there is no feature that allows this. There is only the nodelayprovisioner at present.
