i want to use distcc and ccache in my cluster(10 servers, 8 cpus in each
one) in order to improve build times.
my question is this:
because i have about 80 cpus using make -j with value of 80-160 seems right
according to information on the web.
but when using ccache if i get only cache hits, distcc wont run(im using
CCACHE_PREFIX=distcc) and i will have 80 processes of ccache running on my
local host.
this is much more than the cpus can handle.
should i use -j as the numbers of cpus on my local host?
i want to take advantage of all the cpus in the cluster.....
