Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-6217) Create CentOS 5 image for tethys
Date Thu, 21 Nov 2013 08:54:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6217?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13828611#comment-13828611

jan iversen commented on INFRA-6217:

having dedicated vms, would for sure be more efficient than trying to put many different build
requirements into 1 vm (==buildbot).

Having the vm on top of ubuntu, would also give us the possibility to spin it up, when build
starts, that way it would only use disk when inactive. Even if it runs 24/7 the idle resource
usage is minimal.

Currently infra does not support a structure with vms on ubuntu, that is being investigated
(cloudstack setup), and I hope centOS buildbot could be the test case.

> The preferred OS for building OpenOffice on Linux is CentOS 5 (RedHat analog...)
> This makes the generated binaries as widely compatible as possible.  
> This is the platform that we expect to run the most buildbot flows on, so we would like
to convert tethys, which is dedicated to AOO buildbot and imaged as Linux64, to CentOS 5 32-bit.
> In discussions, it seems that the preferred option is to run a CentOS vm on top of an
ubuntu host, so that the host can be managed as the rest of the infra infra.
