hi, i recently started using ccache and i have a couple of questions.
1)i did a little experiment with different values of CCACHE_NLEVELS and i got the following build time results: NLEVELS 2: 1m:33s NLEVELS 4: 1m:45s NLEVELS 6: 1m:50s NLEVELS 8: 1m:59s some info: a) i always build the same projects from clean cache b) rebuild of projects(only cache hits) resulted always in 30s build time c) im using the cache on NFS d) im using the latest ccache - version 3.1.9 according to the build time results it seems it is better to use low NLEVELS value. when should this value be high? i dont understand the true meaning of this variable and what is he good for. 2)when using the cache for multiple users(about 30 people) i noticed that i get much slower compilation time because cache/NUMBER/stats.lock is locked a lot. is there an option to lock a more "deep" file(when using high NLEVELS value)? for instance cache/NUMBER/NUMBER/NUMBER/stats.lock. if not is there a solution to this problem? 3) my cache size is about 13G(his limit is 50G). does caching become slower if cache size is big? do you recommend cleaning it often? thanks a lot, tal _______________________________________________ ccache mailing list email@example.com https://lists.samba.org/mailman/listinfo/ccache
