memory and swap on the buildds

Asked by Matthias Klose on 2020-12-09

noticed that we have different (and somehow low) memory and swap configurations on the buildds

amd64, i386: 8G RAM, 4G swap
arm64, armhf, ppc64el: 8G RAM, no swap
s390x: 16G RAM, no swap

I'm currently not able to build a GCC with pgo and lto optimizations enabled, also we had some build failures in the hirsute cycle which might be OOM killers (no build log, so we don't know for sure).

Please could we configure the buildds in a way that they have 16G of space (8G RAM, 8G swap)? Looking at the Debian buildds, these are usually configured with a lot more of swap space, some of them having 8G RAM as well.
