Re: What are the key factors for yocto build speed?

On 1600AF with 16G RAM and nvme drive it took ~ 38 hours, if you were running all 4 builds (as test.sh does), you can still finish the tests by running only the remaining build steps.

You can send me even partial results and I'll let you know if your times are expected or not (it should be very similar to this 1600AF, depends on how much swap you have and on how fast disks the swap and build is).

It's also possible that you didn't have enough swap and one of bitbake threads got killed by OOMK and then the rest was stuck forever.

Regards,

Thanks for all the replies here, had some long days so no earlier answers.
I did test this on my home rig (2600X, 16G RAM) and it took ~ 24h until I aborted. Is this expected? I did not yet try on the VM ;D
