[distcc] scheduler

Hey guys,

I'm currently experimenting with distcc, because I want to use it to 
speed up the generation of a Devil-Linux system.
I currently have a compile cluster with
1x Athlon 1 GHz (Master Node) -> m
1x Athlon XP 1,7 GHz -> n1
1x Celeron 466 MHz -> n2
All hosts are connected via a 100 MBit Switch (FDX)

When I compile the Linux Kernel 2.4.20 (make dep bzImage modules) I get 
the following results:
-j1	12:47	m
-j6	05:07	m n1 n2
-j6	04:30	m/2 n1/2 n2/2

-j2	06:00	m n1
-j4	06:05	m n1
-j4	05:16	m/2 n1/2

As you see, when I explicitly define that 2 jobs run on each host, the 
perfomance is much better.



We are Penguin, resistance is futile!
