This is on the loaner. Win32 build. Both nightly and normal build fails with either OOM or LNK1000

How much memory has the loaner got? How much free memory has it got? Has it been rebooted recently?
(In reply to Ian Neal from comment #7) > How much memory has the loaner got? How much free memory has it got? Has it > been rebooted recently? 15GB and yes. It has been rebooted. w/ m-c = https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/a9ec72f82299, it builds. w/ any cset post a9ec72f82299, it gives me either errors. Now, with tip on c-c and m-c, it's taken more than 20 minutes to link, which isn't right since I think it's taken more than 1/2 hr. This is with a clobber build.

:glandium, might you have any ideas? mozilla-central post-https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/a9ec72f82299 fails to build.
Having spoken with IanN, he suggested I backout https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/b7a2f7ff5e87, which I did and it builds.
1) pull both c-c and m-c tip 2) python mozilla\mach clobber 3) build - busts with '2nd type of error' log 4) python mozilla\mach clobber 5) cd mozilla 6) hg backout -r b7a2f7ff5e87 7) cd .. 8) <build> - completes build
Now with m-c's tip, you need to backout both: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/e7c397118fd2 and https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/b7a2f7ff5e87
My last two clobber builds of TB on 2017-02-18 and today failed with the same error. I only have 8GB RAM and 800MB are dedicated to internal graphics. Before I had no trouble building (and BTW, I have three development machines with 8GB). At first I followed my own advice given here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Developer_guide/Build_Instructions/Simple_Thunderbird_build: If on Windows you get link errors like "LNK1102: out of memory" or "LNK1318: Unexpected PDB error; OK (0)", try deleting the largest .PDB files before rushing out the door to buy more RAM. Clobbering (see below) will also remove those files. That didn't help. So then I deleted all 3587 PDB files I saw following http://stackoverflow.com/questions/174013/linker-out-of-memory-lnk1102 and the linker went through, albeit with a lot of warnings about missing PDB files. Since according to comment #8 even 16GB are not enough, I'd like to see this rectified. BTW, only few people build TB/SM in debug mode. Many TB developers are on Linux, Richard and FRG build non-debug. And Kent James will wake up when he tries to build next time.
Created attachment 8840274 [details] [diff] [review] [mozconfigs] proposed workaround patch This is a workaround that I found to work. I haven't tried the debug build yet, but I have pushed to try: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try-comm-central&revision=c3a7bcf4de70599f240111d5bfef6a0566ce3347
Thanks, I'll compile with the patch next time I do a full debug build.
So is this a Visual Studio compiler bug?
I don't think so. You tell the compiler to generate 3587 PDB files and then the linker chokes on those. This might work for small programs, but not for TB or SM; I haven't tried compiling FF lately.
I added CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -FS" CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS -FS" mk_add_options "export COMPILE_PDB_FLAG=-Fdgenerated.pdb" to my local config and now I can build again. I get 722 PDB files (instead of 3587), mostly called generated.pdb. Question: Do we need the patch if the builds work on the servers? How much RAM do they have?

How much > RAM do they have? I'm not too sure how much they have but if they are similar to the loaner I use, should be around 15GB. That said, I'm wondering if 'how' they are built makes a difference. Looking at the tree and not seeing everyone complaining, it has got to be how it's built.
Comment on attachment 8840274 [details] [diff] [review] [mozconfigs] proposed workaround patch I'm undecided here. The proposed solution works locally, so r+. I still doesn't fix anyone compiling locally, see bug 1342617. I'm not sure why you don't make more noise in bug 1322703. I'm also not sure why build bot compiles don't fail.

To be honest, I'm also unsure here also as to whether this fixes anything or just covers an issue with local builds vs. automation builds. > > I'm not sure why you don't make more noise in bug 1322703.

https://hg.mozilla.org/comm-central/rev/67c398c134dfc7b092b73b8abf2c35f40eb37ef4 Bug 1340395 - Append -FS to CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS and use generated.pdb for all the linking. r=jorgk
Comment on attachment 8840274 [details] [diff] [review] [mozconfigs] proposed workaround patch I don't think I quite have the understanding for this one. Sorry!
Patrick, never mind. It landed already. Note that in bug 1322703 they're discussing whether they will back that out, in which case this bug here can be backed out as well.
Backout: https://hg.mozilla.org/comm-central/rev/c26182d4b4d9134ad0448178bf98b10d76654795 I backed this out since bug 1322703 also got backed out.
