distcc is a program to distribute builds of C, C++, Objective C or Objective C++ code across several machines on a network. distcc should always generate the same results as a local build, is simple to install and use, and is usually much faster than a local compile.
distcc does not require all machines to share a filesystem, have synchronized clocks, or to have the same libraries or header files installed. They can even have different processors or operating systems, if cross-compilers are installed.

About this charm
It's a pretty simple charm that provides a peer interface ( distcc-cluster ). This interface allows you to deploy the distcc charm as a single node and add-unit to create a distcc farm or, deploy x number of them in one command to easily create a distcc farm.
The configurable options are pretty self explanatory and are detailed below:
description: Port to use to run distcc
description: You can specify a (positive) nice level for the distcc process here
description: You can specify a maximum number of jobs, the server will accept concurrently.
description: Enable Zeroconf support?# If enabled, distccd will register via mDNS/DNS-SD. It can then automatically be found by zeroconf enabled distcc clients without the need of a manually configured host list.
description: distcc options for each host in the farm
description: Connect this node to an existing distcc ( host:port ).
Note: To be able to connect distcc to an _existing_ distcc farm ( by changing the existing_distcc option ), this service needs to be exposed.
