One of our developers, Patrick Carnahan, has put together a customized build process template that parallelizes a build by platform/configuration. That is, if you use it to build multiple platforms (e.g. “x86” and “x64”) and/or configurations (e.g. “Debug” and “Release”), it will distribute the build of each platform/configuration to a separate Build Agent.
You can download the template from the MSDN Code Gallery: ParallelTemplate.xaml
Once you’ve downloaded the template, you’ll need to add it to your version control repository before you can use it with your build definitions. Just follow these steps to get started:
