Build configs (at the top) and host configs (bottom) are listed here:
A builder runs on a certain host type. (e.g.
linux-386-387 is a build type. It runs on
host-linux-kubestd, a Kubernetes-based linux/amd64 host)
They come from the file https://github.com/golang/build/blob/master/dashboard/builders.go
For design details about the coordinator, see http://golang.org/s/builderplan
How to set up a builder
- talk to golang-dev@ to get a builder host type & hash (they can get one from e.g. https://build-dot-golang-org.appspot.com/key?builder=host-foo-bar), and put that in
~/.gobuildkey-host-foo-baror the file pointed to be env var
- go get golang.org/x/build/cmd/buildlet
- Run the buildlet in a loop or under systemd:
while true; do buildlet -coordinator=farmer.golang.org -reverse-type=host-foo-bar -reboot=false; done
- Verify you can see the host registered at https://farmer.golang.org/#pools in the "Reverse pool machine detail" section and "Reverse pool summary".
- Add a builder type to https://github.com/golang/build/blob/master/dashboard/builders.go (see the
addBuilderlines). Run tests. Send the CL.
- Have golang-dev deploy it.
Older-style builders are listed below. These builders are configured and run manually. The bug https://github.com/golang/go/issues/21191 tracks migrating the remaining ones over to the new system.

- internet connection (at least be able to access Google and http://build.golang.org)
- preferably with two or more (V)CPUs, as at least one test (
runtime.NumCPU() > 1to test more completely)
- at least 512MiB of memory (1GB or more highly recommended. 512MB might need a small
GOGCsetting to avoid thrashing.)
- The combination of Ubuntu 11.10 or 12.04 OMAP4 kernel and pandaboard (ES) have proven unstable as builders. See issue 4305. Make sure you have updated to the latest available 12.04.2 release.
