I have a couple question about the distcc configuration.
Situation: We are trying to find a way that we can use developpers PC's to
compile some projects with DistCC. We have to be able to run DistCC with
minimal effect on the developpement environnement (if possible).
1- Is it possible to limit how much CPU % can be use by DistCC clients?
-> We want to be able to use a small portion of the cpu from each machine,
thus trying to lower the impact on the devellopper using the machine while a
compilation is requested
2- Is there any way to configure the timeout between the call sent to see if
a computer can compile a file and the response from it if it cannot do it?
-> Trying to limit the timeout to the smallest interval so compilation are
rapidly tranferred to another computer if one of the host computer is not
3- Is there any way to make the list of host computer without preference for
the first computer in it?
-> To distribute to load across all the compilation farm instead of filling
the first computer then the other and so forth.
Since i'm really new to the whole linux/cygwin/gcc/distcc thingie, flames
are welcomed :P
Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated...
