Dear Ccache community, I have an amd64 kaveri box with 8GB RAM and run Gentoo stable on it.
I have just installed ccache with 2GB memory allocated to it. I have tried some repeat compilations to see if there would be any speed increase. So far I have not seen much change but I am not skilled enough to improve things yet. I tried compiling gcc, glibc and imagemagick but did not see much improvement. My cache data looks like this: djt /home/mikef # CCACHE_DIR="/var/tmp/ccache" ccache -s cache directory /var/tmp/ccache primary config /var/tmp/ccache/ccache.conf secondary config (readonly) /etc/ccache.conf cache hit (direct) 12997 cache hit (preprocessed) 517 cache miss 16291 called for link 2141 called for preprocessing 1709 multiple source files 4 compile failed 197 preprocessor error 62 bad compiler arguments 79 unsupported source language 2275 autoconf compile/link 1399 unsupported compiler option 8 no input file 2617 files in cache 44633 cache size 891.9 MB max cache size 2.0 GB Could you recommend a gentoo package that I could recompile twice that you think is one that is ideally suited to benefit from ccache being installed? Comments appreciated. Regards Michael Fothergill _______________________________________________ ccache mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.samba.org/mailman/listinfo/ccache
