The purpose of this project is to design and implement a system for regular (nightly or other experiment-level) software builds by Frontier experiments and related software providers at Fermilab. Presently, many software packages are built (on a nightly basis) on interactive nodes. While this is easy to set up, the builds take a long time—up to many hours. Limitations include I/O bandwidth, e.g., from use of network-attached storage, such as NFS or AFS; and a limited number of processors/cores, which limits parallelism in the build process. Individual users building code for their own analyses face similar problems, long compile and link times, probably for the same reasons.
