    With the helm chart, can I replicate all the services e.g. to minimum of three? Or are there some limitations? The values.yaml suggests so by making the replicas configurable, but you never know 🤷

    Hi @Joël Luijmes - This should be possible out of the box!

    I haven’t tried it but it should work 🙂
    Replicating the agent could get you into trouble

    already tried setting agent replicas > 1 and got what @Michael Adkins said: trouble 🙂 leads to jobs being scheduled twice

    And as a general rule, you shouldn't need to spawn multiple agents for scale reasons; spawning different agents should be used as a way of compartmentalizing your flows by things like environment

    ability to scale out other components, e.g. apollo should help, right?

    That's correct, service scaling can be helpful to handle large amounts of traffic.

    Okay thanks for the replies, kinda assumed the other way around: scale only the agent 😅 But its great to hear that the other services can be replicated 🤓
