Define extended period of time. I do builds of my project dozens of
times a day, they take about 5 minutes using 100% cpu of all four cores
for that time period. Sometimes I do full builds, which uses 100% for
about 25 minutes. Never the slightest problem. It currently has a 20
day uptime, but it would be 30 days if not for the fact that I had to
power it down to mount it in a case. A sad day that was. ~:^)
I should point out that the full build builds from scratch, gcc, glibc,
libstc++, a whole bunch of java extension libs, a 2.4 kernel, and our
software, in that 25 minutes. Does this AMD64 stuff rock or what? The
dual xeon build server takes 2 hours to do the same work.
