There doesn't just have to be one build machine, we are going to end up
Our buildserver hardware is a dual quad-core Xeon server with 12 GB of
RAM. Throwing hardware at the problem is another solution, but not an
inexpensive one (we'd be looking at a 4-socket machine filled with
quad-cores and 32 GB of RAM).
needing multiple machines and we can split the load between them quite
easily. I think there is going to be a second machine needed alongside
the existing one regardless of what other optimisations we make.
I can buy another server and contribute it to the build effort. I had intended to buy one this quarter to begin hosting yoctoproject.org and a source mirror, but we could offload part of the builds to it as well.
As you know, I want us to get to the root of the problem, which is efficiency of the build process. Since RP has already committed to addressing this, I'm fine with a short-term fix if it will help. :-)
Scott - please put in an order, will tell you the max amount today when we're f2f.
