Hello everybody,

I want to put some kind of instruction on how to add new slave to llvm master.
I think it should be somewhere on llvm.org, but not sure on exact place.

Any comments/suggestions will be appreciated.



If you want to add your build configuration to the LLVM buildbot infrastructure.

1.  Check the existing build configurations to make sure the one you
are interested in is not covered yet or gets built on your computer
much faster than existing one. We prefer faster builds so developers
will get feedback sooner after changes get committed.

2.  The computer you will be registering with the LLVM buildbot
infrastructure should have all dependencies installed and you can
actually build your configuration successfully. You can build multiple
configurations on one computer.

3.  Install buildslave (currently we are using buildbot version
0.8.5). Depending on the platform, buildslave could be available to
download and install with your packet manager, or you can download it
directly from http://trac.buildbot.net/ and install it manually.

4.  Create a designated user account your buildslave will be running under.

5.  Choose the buildslave root directory (all builds will be placed
under it), buildslave access name and password the build master will
be using to authenticate your build slave.

6.  Then create a build slave in context of that buildslave account.
Point it to the lab.llvm.org port 9990 (see
for more details) by running the following command:
            buildslave create-slave <buildslave-root-directory>
lab.llvm.org: 9990 <buildslave-access-name> <

7.  Fill the build slave description and admin name/e-mail. Here is an
example of the build slave description:
            Windows 7 x64

            Core i7 (2.66GHz), 16GB of RAM

            g++.exe (TDM-1 mingw32) 4.4.0

            GNU Binutils 2.19.1

            cmake version 2.8.4

            Microsoft(R) 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version
16.00.40219.01 for 80x86

8. Make sure you can actually start the buildslave successfully. Then
set up your build slave to start automatically at the start up time.
See buildbot manual for help.

9. Send a patch which adds your build slave and builder to zorg.

            * slaves are added to

            * builders are added to

10. Then send the buildslave access name and password directly to
