Particularly for ParaView, job queue is very long on some buildbots (10+ hours) and seems related more to testing than configuring/building.
It can be frustrating to be able to run tests only once a day when deadlines are very short.
Here are some ideas:
- upgrading hardware of the slowest buildbots
- add an option to run only some tests based on regex (generally sufficient for WIP MR)
- run only tests impacted by the modifications (seems difficult to implement though)
- add an option to set the priority of the request
What do you think?
