What are the key factors for yocto build speed?

Oliver Westermann


We're currently using a VM on Windows and it's a lot slower than the native linux build (which is expected).
We're looking into getting a dedicated build server for our team (basically a self-build tower PC). Any suggestions what to put in that build to get the most out of it?

Currently we're looking at a big Ryzen, 64G of RAM and one or multiple SSDs on a "consumer grade" board like the X570.

Suggestions, hints and links welcome :)
