It's a bit more complicated than that. Since multiple source versions
are tested in parallel, the i386 tests have been achieving a
throughput of more than six runs per 24 h even before the switch to
NVMM. Using NVMM frees up a significant amount of CPU, but the builds
and the sparc tests still use as much CPU as before. So the overall
throughput of the server has increased, but by a smaller factor than
the latency of the i386 and amd64 tests.
