Using Xen as Build Server.

Over the past few years Our build server machines have increased  to meet differece Windows and Linux platforms. For example on Linux 2.4 kernel and Linux 2.6 kernel Platform, each platform should installation on two and more machines for deploying specialized toolchain compilers.

However, this adoption of build servers, particularly for stabilization solutions, has led to machine bloat -- towers and racks of multicolored boxes, each performing a specialized build.

About half years ago, I installed a Xen 3.0.3 server with 2 GB memory, moved the Linux build server's function to the Xen server. After two weeks of stabilization test, all  runs smoothly .
