LLVMdev Digest, Vol 75, Issue 40

Hi Danny,

Can't offer it in the bay area, but i can offer space in oregon state
university (which is where the osuosl machines reside).

Why do you need access if you have people willing to handle support
tickets and remote console/power control cards?

I don't, really. To be honest, I wasn't aware that OSUOSL had all of
these services available.

That's what they do

As it turns out, that's what UIUC does too :-). llvm.org (aka llvm.cs.uiuc.edu) lives at UIUC. Moreover, we also have an LLVM funding account here in case we need to channel funds to buy machines in the future; that's where the GSoC money as well as the dev meeting sponsorship money lives. If locating in the Bay Area is not a requirement, as you said, then placing more machines at UIUC is something to consider.

I have yet to see a problem that i could not solve (since the cards
can display console, control power to the machine, etc) either through
this or a support ticket answered very quickly.

Apparently I need to investigate the services we have available to us
through OSUOSL more closely. If I can possible ship some machines to
OSUOSL where we would have good remote access that could be extended
to trusted LLVM developers then this would be an excellent solution.

Yup, that's what we do with our machines.

Already happens for llvm.org.
