Subject Re: Build slave capacity on builds.apache.org
Date Thu, 20 Aug 2015 02:28:58 GMT
So, just spot checking some of the dynamic build slaves - historically
those have spun up a few hours at a time, to give us additional
capacity when our queue spiked - but it looks like the slaves are
staying online pretty much all of the time. Right now we are
configured to have 12 slaves. Assuming they are staying online all the
time, that's roughly $2600 per month that we are spending on build
slave capacity - I looked at our last bill ending July 24th, and we
spent about $1200 on build slave capacity - so this is about 2x what
we were spending - I am curious why the sudden uptick in demand -
what's changed?
