In case you haven't figured it out yet - Solus is very much back in the game now.

We've done 3 syncs since ferryd went live and over 200 package changes (90% of them being updates), and there's gonna be a 4th sync right after I've validated the new NVIDIA 384.90 update. And after that I'm gonna update the X stack.

..ferryd hasn't even been in for a full day yet.

Brace yourselves, it's all on now. ^_^

Pretty sure future Plasma users on Solus will be happy with updates.. :)

Tiny, big updates, ftw.

Updates are still flying by! Makes me really, really happy to see us at this point again. Cadence - a very important thing! Get yourselves strapped in, you're going to quite literally witness Solus evolve over the coming weeks :))

What do you do when your infrastructure is flying again?

Well, if you're +Peter O'Connor - you update KDE + Plasma!

ferryd is officially LIVE on the Solus build infrastructure!

Built nano, new package + deltas immediately available. This is .. this is bliss.
Project cadence is gonna jump some.. :)))

Right, at some point today/tonight we're looking to switch out the current direct server and stick a CDN in the middle, more on that to come in a blog post I think.

Today is the day it all changes. Mark it in your calendar!

Alright, we've done some real world testing now with ferryd, and one of the most important aspects happened to be delta packages.

We did a full import of the original repos (including their backversions)..

Turns out shannon had no delta packages left at all. Sad face. Unstable had just under 1100 floating around..

Using 4 background jobs, the first run ("delta unstable") took 59m34s and produced 3661 .delta.eopkg files.

Using the same number of background jobs, the second run ("delta shannon") is lucky and gets to reuse some of the existing deltas from unstable, but still has to produce some due to drift. Second run took 24m4s and resulting in shannon having 4380 .delta.eopkg files. That's a whole lot more than 0!

We're currently testing a live deployment of ferryd. Performed a mass import of unstable (13k) and shannon (15k) - trimmed max back versions to 3 (we'll keep more than this going forward) - trimmed packages marked as obsolete, and now, for the crunch test.. Mass production of deltas in parallel :))

(mass import of unstable took 7 minutes for 13k packages. It currently takes binman around 6 minutes per eopkg right now. Indexing is taking around 5s with the full index, not shabby at all.)
