We have detected a build metrics regression from push:

As author of one of the patches included in that push, we need your help to address this regression.


61% build times linux64 debug base-toolchains taskcluster-c4.4xlarge 1,158.78 -> 1,859.88
9% build times linux64 debug base-toolchains taskcluster-m4.4xlarge 1,088.63 -> 1,189.23

I'm not 100% sure bug 524410 really caused this build time increase, as there are multiple bugs in its time range that tweak the build configs.

Still, by inspecting the metrics from all instance types, I've managed to narrow down to it.

Also, there's so much noise in these metrics, that what I can say for sure is there's a regression, but can't precisely say of what magnitude. Note the difference between 9% and 61%...

I can believe that dump_syms is doing more work...I wouldn't think it slowed down by that much, though! I think this is a change that we're willing to accept...especially if it's only with base toolchains, which we don't impact shipping builds, or many developers.

I'm inclined to close this as WONTFIX. Geoff, do you have other opinions?

That sounds right to me.
