CloudBees Accelerator Insight Release Notes, Version 5.5.1

2 minute read

Product Description

CloudBees Build Acceleration Insight™ is a reporting and visualization tool for CloudBees Build Acceleration™. CloudBees Build Acceleration Insight (”Insight”) reads an annotation file produced by Electric Make™ (”eMake”), to provide a graphical representation of the build structure for performance analysis. Insight provides detailed information and reports for each job on each host in the build cluster. Insight shows how a build is structured and run, which lets you find performance problems or conflicts in a parallel build.

You can use Insight for at-a-glance diagnostics by examining which jobs are being performed, when they are being performed, and the files that are associated with them. You can also use Insight to help identify makefile problems and compare certain differences between an annotation file and a file from a similar build to help solve performance, job cache misses, and other issues. Insight is a simpler alternative to examining the file itself to find errors and tune performance.
