2 cores is a bit weak for autobuilders, especially considering what we want to build on it. The 16 core autobuilder at work struggles to build angstrom-gnome-image in less than 8 hours, and that's only 1 image for 1 machine for 1 distro. And when building asio on my home machine with 2GB ram it also dips heavily into swap.
Considering that I would like to run a single VM (for migration and failover reasons) on an 8 core machine to do autobuilds, or have 3-4 of those 2-core VMs you talked about running in parallel (preferably on different physical hw). If going parallel we'd only need ~100GB of disk per VM.
I imagine all the autubuilders would be buildbot slaves reporting to the tinderbox.
Would something like that be possible?
