(Continued from #19930 (comment))

The linux-mips64 builder keeps working, but no success or failure shows up on, which means the builder is disappearing or something.

I see make.bash finishes in 13 minutes, and now I'm watching it do the snapshot copy to Google Cloud Storage. There's a comment on that code that says:

func (st *buildStatus) writeSnapshot(bc *buildlet.Client) (err error) {
        sp := st.createSpan("write_snapshot_to_gcs")
        defer func() { sp.done(err) }()
        // This should happen in 15 seconds or so, but I saw timeouts                                                                                                          
        // a couple times at 1 minute. Some buildlets might be far                                                                                                             
        // away on the network, so be more lenient. The timeout mostly                                                                                                         
        // is here to prevent infinite hangs.                                                                                                                                  
        ctx, cancel := context.WithTimeout(context.Background(), 5*time.Minute)
        defer cancel()

There's a 5 minute timeout. It's possible those arm5 machines can't gzip quickly, and/or their network is slow.

Yup, confirmed:

Error: writeSnapshot: net/http: request canceled

Maybe we don't need to snapshot those builds to Google Cloud Storage. That means we can't shard tests, but we're not doing that currently anyway.

mips64 has an "ok" on the dashboard now.

@bradfitz, thanks!

(mips and mips64 builders are slow partly because they run on the same machine, they are slowing down each other.)
