"actions/checkout" takes longer on multiple parallel job workflows

When I run parallel 5 jobs in a workflow “actions/checkout” step on a job takes about 2-3 minutes. This is just happening on only 1 job, other 4 jobs works fine.

I can not share full screenshot since it contains repository and image names which I prefer keep private )

Hi @TheMisir,

Are your parallel jobs using same runner OS? What’s the OS type?

I confirm it works fine on my side(ubuntu-latest runner). Could you please try again and check if it’s reproducible?


Yes using ububtu latest os. All jobs are same tasks with different arguments (provided by matrix strategy). It doesn’t happens always but yesterday I saw that it happened 2-3 times
