Googler Copybara-Service
Googler and Copybara-Service BuildRequestOptions.java: bump the max --jobs setting to keep up with…
… the times.

This was last raised over a year ago, and at least I personally have had two
significant workstation upgrades since then. As far as I can tell 3,000 wasn't
chosen scientifically, so there's no reason to suspect that it's optimal. If it
turns out that the new value is problematic for some reason this can always be
rolled back.

More importantly, the default for --jobs still says the same, so this is purely
an opt in change and is unlikely to be disruptive.

{Fast, Correct} - Choose two

Build and test software of any size, quickly and reliably.

  • Speed up your builds and tests: Bazel only rebuilds what is necessary. With advanced local and distributed caching, optimized dependency analysis and parallel execution, you get fast and incremental builds.

  • One tool, multiple languages: Build and test Java, C++, Android, iOS, Go, and a wide variety of other language platforms. Bazel runs on Windows, macOS, and Linux.

  • Scalable: Bazel helps you scale your organization, codebase, and continuous integration solution. It handles codebases of any size, in multiple repositories or a huge monorepo.

  • Extensible to your needs: Easily add support for new languages and platforms with Bazel's familiar extension language. Share and re-use language rules written by the growing Bazel community.
