Overview

The Slicer factory machine is maintained by Kitware and produces dashboard builds of many software projects, including nightly, continuous, and packaged versions of Slicer and its approved extensions. See the Slicer4 dashboard.

These builds are generated every day on three different operating systems: Windows 7, Mac OS X, and Linux. Because it is not legal to run any version of Mac OS X on a virtual machine (unless its host also runs Mac OS X), the host OS is Mac OS X, and the Windows and Linux builds are run within this machine as virtual machines.

Required factory components

See dashboard prerequisites.

Host(s)

factory.kitware

Software

The factory machine runs Mac OS X v10.6.8, Snow Leopard.

  • CMake version: 3.5.0-rc3 with this patch
  • Compiler llvm-3.1. Note that the default compiled shipped with XCode 4.2 is not used. See here for more details.
  • Tasks scheduled using cron

Remote access: Via SSH or VNC from Kitware internal network (192.168.113.241).


Hardware

  • "Mac Pro (Mid 2010)" which has the 64-bit kernel enabled by default. See here for details.

Processor

  • 2 x 2.93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon

Graphics Card

  • Chipset Model: ATI Radeon HD 5770
  • Type: GPU
  • Bus PCIe
  • VRAM (total): 1024MB
  • EFI Driver Version: 01.00.436

Memory

  • 8 x 4GB = 32GB
  • Type: DDR3 ECC
  • Speed: 1333 MHz

factory-south.kitware

The factory machine runs Mac OS X 10.11.6 (15G31), El Capitan

  • Tasks scheduled using cron

The virtual machines are run using the Parallels Desktop 11.

Remote access: Via SSH or VNC from Kitware internal network (10.171.2.166).

Hardware

Processor

  • 2 x 2.4 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon

Graphics Card

  • Chipset Model: ATI Radeon HD 5770
  • Type: GPU
  • Bus PCIe
  • VRAM (total): 1024MB
  • EFI Driver Version: 01.00.436

Memory

  • 8 x 8GB = 64 GB
  • Type: DDR3 ECC
  • Speed: 1333 MHz

VM: Linux

factory-south-ubuntu.kitware

  • Ubuntu 10.04
  • CMake version: 3.5.0-rc3
  • GCC version: Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5.1
  • Tasks scheduled using cron
$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:	Ubuntu
Description:	Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS
Release:	10.04
Codename:	lucid

$ c++ --version
c++ (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5.1) 4.4.3

Remote access: Via SSH or VNC from Kitware internal network (10.171.2.113).

VM: Windows 7

  • Tasks are scheduled using the Windows Task Scheduler (Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Task Scheduler)
  • On Windows, instead of bash, we use batch scripts comprised of commands to call ctest to run all the nightly scripts.

factory-south-win7.kitware

  • Windows 7 Ultimate N - Service Pack 1 (Build 7601) on an x86 platform.
  • CMake version: 3.5.0-rc3
  • Compiler: VS2013 Community Edition

Also, keep in mind the Documentation/Nightly/Developers/Tutorials/DashboardSetup#Remarks remarks about building a dashboard on a Windows machine. These all apply here.

Remote access: Via Remote Desktop from Kitware internal network (10.171.2.245).
