Impressive Hardware Setup For Running HFCD

with one comment

Recently I’ve received an email from a Flex developer. He told me that his development team has been using HFCD for Flex development. What impressed me was his team hardware setup. Basically, his team of developers connect Flex Builder running on their laptops to multiple instances of HFCD running on a powerful LAN server. He is quite happy about the improved development experience.

The server we’re sharing for compilation is a Dell box with basic hardware config:

OS: Solaris 10
CPU: Dual quad-core Xeon 2.8ghz (two threads per core — OS reports 16 cores)
Memory: 32GB
Ethernet: 4 connected Ethernet connections (mutliplexed between Solaris Zones)

This box hosts a few zones that do various other things too (host db’s, app servers), however all for dev purposes so it’s never generally that busy.

As you might guess, using HFCD on this box to compile has significant advantages to the laptops we develop on.

Awesome! :-)
