Events   Events : AMUC distcc demo
   posted by ssolie on 24-Oct-2005 15:07:00 (2202 reads)
The Amiga Users of Calgary (AMUC) will be hosting a demo of the distcc and parallel make tools tonight with at least 2 x MicroA1-C systems and 1 x AmigaOne-XE system. If you happen to be in the Calgary area you might want to drop by and see our little LAN in action on the big screen.

We'll also have the usual bits of Amiga news plus demos of some OS4 games, various tools, etc. and end up in a local restaurant/bar as per usual.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen

Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

Hmm... I've always wanted to visit Calgary, but it is a little late at this hour to be starting out.

Besides, my water heater just blew a few minutes ago and what a mess.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

The demo went without a hitch. We had three A1 systems all compiling the expat XML parser simultaneously with the distcc tools. We used an ethernet switch and quickly setup a LAN with static IPs (not one single reboot required thanks to Roadshow) using Internet prefs. One of the machines didn't have the SDK installed which was remedied using my USB mem stick (no ftpd around) to install just the GCC compiler on that box + distccd. With distcc, all you need on the server systems is the basic compiler installed and distccd running.

The distccmon-amiga GUI displayed all the jobs and what the status of each job was. I went as high as 6 jobs so each box was running 2 compiles each. We also tried with and without the lzo compression. With all the boxes at 100Mbit the compression didn't do much to help. I left the shells open on the server machines so we could review what each server was doing as well. One server was in --verbose mode so it spewed out all sorts of stuff. Needless to say, the complete build, link and test suite run was done in a couple minutes or less.

I was hoping we could get 4 systems going but the other fellow didn't show. It was still a treat to see all those Amiga systems performing so well together. Next time I'm sure we'll have a couple of Amy'05 boards to add to the mix (go Troika).

P.S. Sorry, no pics. My wife killed the batteries in our digital camera and had the spares hidden someplace I didn't discover in time.
