A new mips64 machine has been added to the farm: gcc230 is a EdgeRouter 4 running Debian 10.

Compared to the existing MIPS boards gcc22 and gcc23, it has a slightly newer Cavium CPU with 4 cores, but only 1 GB of memory. In addition, it has a local disk while the existing boards have their home over NFS, and it runs a newer Debian version.

As always, this is a shared system, so make sure to use reasonable amount of resources (disk space, CPU, memory). On this system specifically, memory-hungry tasks should be avoided or run single-threaded: make sure to monitor your memory usage.

Many thanks to Denis Ovsienko for providing and hosting the board!
