Re: Launchpad builders - increasing memory spec

Yeah, if we make all builders x4 the size, it may mean we will have 4x
less /builders/.

Builders are currently 4G then with 4 cores?  maybe a doubling might be a more sensible proposal to start with.

I think I've also seen a sqlite in memory based set of unit test failures in Neutron which I've never been able to pin down but again it feels like memory contention within the builder.

Upstream don't see the same thing, but their minimum spec for a unit testing machine is >=8G.
