But that's more for tracking the performance of various kernel
subsystems (disk I/O, swapping, network) to spot stupid VM-tuning
mistakes more easily.
Liam and I are looking for answers to questions like:
When do CPU speed increases stop giving you faster compiles?
Does the size of the L2 cache matter that much for stuff
like the GCC toolchain?
What's the ideal kernel compile box for X pounds? :-)
