We see a change in build times for windows 8 related to push 9943bdffe504: https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/pushloghtml?fromchange=b49f022053304bd9cc3a902e414fe51efe26a06e&tochange=9943bdffe5045968571f18ba6a283cbb5df894e0 This is a list of all known regressions and improvements related to the push: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/perf.html#/alerts?id=856 here is the graph: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/perf.html#/graphs?series=%5Bmozilla-inbound,c71c6eaa478bb9048fe7f16658a86caf04e2b59a,1%5D&series=%5Bmozilla-inbound,668e1edbe52f9daa14ace77738b2d4bac168581f,1%5D I don't know if this is a config issue or something unrelated to the patch (maybe a clobber from a slightly earlier changeset). I thought I would file a bug to let folks know- this is windows only, doesn't show up on linux.
I was concerned about this earlier, because the regression appeared persistent (our new lower range for inbound builds appeared much higher), but looking at newer builds it seems less definitive: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/perf.html#/graphs?timerange=172800&series=%5Bmozilla-inbound,b24dd9c57bc94f92ce0cdbba599aef16a4c6d033,1%5D&series=%5Bmozilla-inbound,413ae1bdeebb951a00c3047744aa4b6eef0f21a0,1%5D
Note that my push has 3 very tiny patches (maybe 10 lines of code total). I know, that doesn't have to say much, but it's not like the compiler suddenly has lots of extra code to compile.
Looking again at the graph in comment 1, we're pretty clearly back to the norm here. Inbound build times are inherently noisy, but if this had persisted it would have been an important to track down, so it's good we're detecting things like this.
