Subject Re: Ask for ARM CI for spark
Date Fri, 16 Aug 2019 02:01:16 GMT
Hi Sean,

Thanks very much for pointing out the roadmap. ;-). Then I think we will
continue to focus on our test environment.

For the networking problems, I mean that we can access Maven Central, and
jobs cloud download the required jar package with a high network speed.
What we want to know is that, why the Spark QA test jobs[1] log shows the
job script/maven build seem don't download the jar packages? Could you tell
us the reason about that? Thank you.  The reason we raise the "networking
problems" is that we found a phenomenon during we test, if we execute "mvn
clean package" in a new test environment(As in our test environment, we
will destory the test VMs after the job is finish), maven will download the
dependency jar packages from Maven Central, but in this job
"spark-master-test-maven-hadoop" [2], from the log, we didn't found it
download any jar packages, what the reason about that?
Also we build the Spark jar with downloading dependencies from Maven
Central, it will cost mostly 1 hour. And we found [2] just cost 10min. But
if we run "mvn package" in a VM which already exec "mvn package" before, it
just cost 14min, looks very closer with [2]. So we suspect that downloading
the Jar packages cost so much time. For the goad of ARM CI, we expect the
performance of NEW ARM CI could be closer with existing X86 CI, then users
could accept it eaiser.


Best regards
