CDash 1.6 implements a beta version of remote build management directly from CDash. This page describes how to enable build management in CDash and will be updated as we improve the concept.


The main idea of the CDash/CTest build management is to have clients announce their availability to the CDash server. The server then schedule and allocate the proper clients based on the build requirements.


In your config.local.php put the following line:


Then create a machine description XML file (mymachine.cdash.xml) on each client machine:

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
     <generator>Visual Studio 9 2008</generator> 
     <path>C:/Program Files/CMake 2.8/bin</path>
