ElectricAccelerator vs. distcc: samba reloaded

ElectricAccelerator vs distcc - samba reloaded In an earlier post I compared the performance of ElectricAcclerator and distcc by building samba using each tool in turn on the same cluster.

I recently contributed an article to CM Crossroads on when (or whether) to upgrade from an open source Continuous Integration (CI) system to a fully automated enterprise system.  It’s a question we get a lot.  To help our customers assess their needs, I always start by asking these seven questions:...

Annocat: e pluribus unum

ElectricAccelerator annotation files are a fantastic way to get a grip on your build behavior and performance, but what if your Build (capital B) spans more than one invocation of emake? Annotation gives you a good look inside any single invocation, but there's no way to get an overview of...

Just a minute!

Efficiency sure is popular, especially in the business of software development. NetApp would like to help you track storage efficiency. Nokia Siemens Networks hopes you're thinking about network efficiency And Cisco points out that energy efficiency should be at the top of your cost-cutting strategy list.  Infrastructure vendors are on...
