Subject Re: Parallel Mustella runs
Date Fri, 28 Jun 2013 07:26:34 GMT
Actually, MS just changed the way they "charge" for the MSDN accounts,
they now work with credits. Currently my account has 115 euro/month
credit and - as far as I can tell, this is a recent change - running a
Medium VM (2 x 1.6GHz CPU, 3.5GB RAM) for a month will just fit that
credit.

A Medium VM takes just about 11 hours to run the full suite of
Mustella tests (main, AIR and mobile), so anything 'smaller' will
probably not be practical.

I'm putting the last touches on the Mustella jobs (one for each part
of the suite).

I don't think we need to spend time on building a "test-run farm" for
Mustella. The current set up runs all tests twice a day. For the
current level of development going on on the SDK that is more than
plenty. Also, lots of tests are failing, we better spend our resources
making all tests pass.

Although... it might be cool to have 2 more VMs up and running: one
Mustella on the most recent stable Flash Player and AIR and another
running the bleeding edge (beta) versions.

I'm glad to share what I have, don't get me wrong. Once the three jobs
run cleanly, I'll look into a way to share the VM "disk".
