Subject Re: AW: Win2K vs Sun
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2002 19:54:27 GMT
More info:

JDK 1.3 and Sun's javac were used on all machines.  While jikes will speed up 
the build, we're currently using javac for any builds at the integration level or 
above (test, production environments).

The chip on the Compaq machine is a Pentium III.

Linux is not an option - the Unix group at our company has decided Linux is an 
unsupported OS.


If using the <parallel> task allows Ant to more effectively use MP, then why 
did the Win2K machine appear to do a much better job of distributing the 
load (without the <parallel> task)?

As stated in my first post, both processors showed a 58% load.  This is in 
contrast to the Sun E450 that had a 100% load on one processor while the 
other three had no load.

Hi Kyle,

have you tried jikes? I would recommend it as build compiler!
Is Linux an option?
My own experience is that a Pentium 4 makes a difference. Are you talking
about PIII or PIV with your W2K-Machine.
Are you using Sun or IBM JDK? I don't know for the compiler, but normally
IBM is faster.
