Subject Re: Mustella on Amazon EC2
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2013 00:41:55 GMT
Okay, I give up.  The micro instance has 600MB of RAM and 30GB of hard
disk.  It has taken around 2.5 days since I started the mustella run and it
has not finished yet.  It took more than 24 hours to just compile the
tests.  And it has written over 17 million times to the page file on the
hard disk.  That is where the costs are racking up :-)

I am going to see what it takes to upgrade to a Mini instance.

Any recommendations on what I should expect on a mini instance?

Thanks,
Om
