Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Excessive disk usage of HIPPs

Here is a more detailed list for emfcompare:
hipp8:/jobs/genie.emfcompare # du -shc *
Disk usage in master-nightly:
hipp8:/jobs/genie.emfcompare/master-nightly # du -shc *
So it's mostly the workspace and the build artifacts (not big by itself,
but there are quite a few builds kept with artifacts) in each configuration.
During the move, only EMFcompare's jobs dir was copied from one physical
machine to another and it used the same amount of disk space before the
move and after.
