> why will a 1 CPU environment using -j8?

Many tests of the Python test suite spend a significant time on just sleeping and waiting for I/O. Using -jN with N > 1 runs tests much faster.

> isn't that too much for it?

That's a good question :-) At least, we now have one more tool to take a decision. Maybe the buildbot slave allows also more than one build in parallel? (ex: test 3.5 and 3.6 branches)
