Question

What are Gitlab Runner minimal hardware requirements?

I want to install Gitlab Runner on ubuntu droplet(probably with this tutorial https://about.gitlab.com/2016/04/19/how-to-set-up-gitlab-runner-on-digitalocean). This droplet will be dedicated Gitlab Runner.

I am wondering what are minimal hardware and memory requirements for Gitlab Runner.

Can I use droplet with 512 Mb RAM?

Is it worked for you? If yes, then how is the performance in case you have a single user. Moreover, can you execute another process during an idle time of the gitlab?

Runs fine on a 512mb droplet with Ubuntu and swap configured. I’ve run the same with a 2gb droplet and didn’t notice any difference, but I suppose it’ll be slightly faster.
