It is possible to change the configuration of a running gitlab-runner by editing the file ~/.gitlab-runner/config.toml.
For example to be able to switch the log_level from ‘info’ to ‘debug’ and back again, you can do so by logging into the gitlab-runner and then editing the file.
The file is reloaded without the need for rebooting the gitlab-runner.
You want to use Google’s Autopilot for your gitlab runners, but your job/builds fail because of low resources (ie ephemeral storage).
You can use a limit range to increase the limits for ephemeral storage or/and memory that will make Google’s autopilot to use them and scale them appropriately.
Create a limit range file like:
And then apply it to your cluster
kubectl -n namespace apply -f limit_range.yaml
