In the next week I plan to move the buildmaster and Linux buildslaves
from their current location (http://freya.cs.uiuc.edu:8009/) to other
machines which should be more usable on a permanent basis. The Windows
and Mac buildslaves will remain the same, though the Mac will be
upgraded to 10.6 at some point.
The T2000 Sun was hosting for us, and which ran the Solaris buildslaves,
dropped off the net in the last week, probably because of datacenter
consolidation at Oracle. I don't know whether it is worthwhile to try
to track it down? I do have a Solaris/Sparc box (a V240; considerably
slower) available to use but I'd have to install the machine for that
purpose; I'm not sure it's worth the trouble. I could set up a Solaris
x86 buildslave quite easily, though.
I plan on retiring the microbenchmark/plots pages
http://freya.cs.uiuc.edu/~njriley/plots.html). First, any subsequent
results will be obtained on different machines, so they won't be
directly comparable to the existing ones; second, these pages are based
on old versions of PyPy's benchmarking infrastructure, which has evolved
quite substantially in the past few years.
The new version of the PyPy infrastructure, codespeed/speedcenter
(http://speed.pypy.org/) is available
(http://github.com/tobami/codespeed), as are the benchmarks themselves.
If someone is interested in adapting this for use with Jython and needs
a machine to host it on, I could potentially help.
