My Build is Using Too Many Resources

We limit build resources to make sure that users don’t overwhelm our build systems. If you are running into this issue, there are a couple fixes that you might try.


The current build limits can be found on our Build Process page.

Reduce formats you’re building

You can change the formats of docs that you’re building with our YAML file’s formats option.

In particular, the htmlzip takes up a decent amount of memory and time, so disabling that format might solve your problem.

Reduce documentation build dependencies

A lot of projects reuse their requirements file for their documentation builds. If there are extra packages that you don’t need for building docs, you can create a custom requirements file just for documentation. This should speed up your documentation builds, as well as reduce your memory footprint.
