Concurrent Multiple Deployments to the Same Tentacle

Hi there,

Does Octopus support running multiple deployments concurrently to the same tentacle? e.g. I need to deploy web, app and DB tier projects and they all go to the same server. Will the deployment be queued or be executed in parallel? If the latter, what is the maximum limit of concurrent sessions it supports?


Hi Roger,

Thanks for getting in touch!

Yes, we do support running multiple deployments concurrently on a Tentacle. This page will explain how to do it.

There is also a couple of special variables you can set in your project to modify the max parallelism for the package acquisition, steps and retention policy phases.

  • Package acquistion and Retention Policy -> Octopus.Acquire.MaxParallelism, default 10
  • Steps -> Octopus.Action.MaxParallelism, default int.MaxValue

Please note: You may run into issues with locked files etc (especially with IIS).

Hope that helps!

Thank you and kind regards,

Thanks Henrik for the quick reply and update to the docs. : )
