Distribute ProjectBuilder builds using 10.2
Authored by: sderman on Aug 05, '03 04:25:28PM

Note the installation notes say:
The hosts should be listed in descending order of speed. localhost
should normally be first, unless it is significantly slower than
another machine.

This is cool, I've got it running with a DualGig workstation and my 500mHz laptop doing some network compiling however it seems to be slower in my case.

For my one project 3 dependent targets, it is 40 seconds without distcc and 41 using it to the laptop.

For my other project 4 dependent targets, it is 65-66 seconds with distcc and 66-69 seconds using it to the laptop.

It seems to to get stuck waiting for the laptop to finish compiling a file before it can link.

If I ever get a faster second computer, it will be a good tool, for my setup, it is just technologically neat.
