joakimk / Testbot stats (for rspec)
Created Jan 26, 2010
Example test runtimes using testbot
View Testbot stats (for rspec)
1 computers - 1 cpus: 29 minutes (rake spec)
5 computers - 13 cpus: 4 minutes (rake testbot:spec)
10 computers - 25 cpus: 2 minutes (rake testbot:spec) (about 60% cpu efficiency)
The testbot communication overhead is about 2-5 seconds per run. Fetching the code
and setting up the test environment takes a bit longer. The jobs are not being
perfectly balanced. There is still plenty of room for optimizations.

View schema_dumper bug?
The SchemaDumper in rails, which is used by rake db:schema:dump expects there to be either a
"pk_and_sequence_for" or "primary_key" on the connection adapter. See line 82:
However... the jdbcmysql adapter does not have either method. The result of this is that running
"jruby -S rake db:schema:dump" will create a schema.rb where every table has :id => false.

Script to install a PXE boot server for diskless clients
# This installs a PXE boot server.
# It's based on
# It's been used with ubuntu-10.10-server-amd64.iso and ubuntu-10.10-server-i386.iso.
# It requires two network cards. One for access to the outside world and one
# for a private network of PXE clients. I've choosen this setup to not cause problems
# with DHCP on the normal network.
# It also requires that you have a second partition mounted on /nfsroot.
