Queue mode - dynamic tests allocation across parallel CI nodes playThe recommended way to run tests - it ensures all parallel CI nodes finish work at a similar time. It auto balances tests split between parallel CI nodes to get the fastest CI build time.
Queue Mode solves CI node bottlenecks impacting your parallel tests split:
Regular mode - test suite split based on time execution playIt is deterministic way of running tests. It generates subset of test suite per CI node before running tests. Can be used with knapsack_pro ruby gem.
Auto split slow test file between parallel CI nodesA single test file can be auto split by test examples between parallel jobs.
Automated tests time execution recording
Test suite split based on most up to date tests time execution data
Support for short-lived CI nodesKnapsack Pro is fault-tolerant and can withstand possible CI instance preemptions (shut down) when you use highly affordable CI nodes like Google Cloud Preemptible VMs or Amazon EC2 Spot Instances. See how to enable it in Queue Mode. It's enabled by default in Regular Mode.
Knapsack Pro available as Heroku add-onKnapsack Pro Heroku add-on page & See introduction video

Supported CI providers
It works with all CI servers (setup with ENV vars)
Knapsack Pro is CI provider-agnostic (it works with every CI provider). The CI providers listed below are ones whose environment variables could be automatically read by Knapsack Pro, making the setup faster. If your CI provider is not listed below then you still can use Knapsack Pro, just follow the installation guide to manually set environment variables needed by Knapsack Pro.
