Re: ARM Builder Issues

Fede Claramonte <fclaramonte@...>

Thunderx and the recently released thunderx2 are the 'big brothers' of the board currently used(octeontx). The thunderx are better suited for being a jenkins build machine, so great news.

In the meanwhile, we will continue debugging the networks problems. One of the solutions we are thinking is about adding a second build machine.

And if anyone is interested in hosting the build machine we can donate a board so we don't need to host our self.


PD: It is better to contact Chencho (in CC) for issues with the jenkins build machine.

I recently got word that our provider is adding ARM soon.  They are apparently adding "thunderx" machines, thought I don't have any more specifics atm.  Fede, are

you familiar with thunderx?

The ARM builder is unable to pull down code from Git due to network issues. From the logs:


Receiving objects:  11% (1328/11315), 8.34 MiB | 16.00 KiB/s  

fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

fatal: early EOF

fatal: index-pack failed

What would an alternate solution for building our code for ARM look like? It seems like we run into network connectivity problems a lot, and it would be nice to be able to run more than 1 job at a time.
