Start agent container on build

Thank you

There are a couple of docker options via plugins - and

I discuss the two options in an blog post I wrote at

How to scale up/down your agents is not covered in those plugins nor discussed in my blog post. If you want to explore dynamic scaling of agents, perhaps look at the webhooks API where you can be informed of new builds etc

Thank you for pushing me in the right direction!!
