Ask questionsWindows build
I am trying to cross-compile for Windows, from Linux (with go1.12 linux/amd64, gcc version 7.4).
I have added the following to
victoria-metrics-amd64: CGO_ENABLED=1 GOARCH=amd64 GO111MODULE=on go build -mod=vendor -ldflags "$(GO_BUILDINFO)" -o bin/victoria-metrics-amd64.exe ./app/victoria-metrics
I then ran
GOOS=windows GOARCH=amd64 make victoria-metrics-amd64 with this result:
# runtime/cgo gcc: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-mthreads’; did you mean ‘-pthread’? # github.com/VictoriaMetrics/VictoriaMetrics/lib/memory lib/memory/memory.go:31:10: undefined: sysTotalMemory app/victoria-metrics/Makefile:30: recipe for target 'victoria-metrics-amd64' failed make: *** [victoria-metrics-amd64] Error 2
I do not have enough experience to proceed. Maybe you can help? Also, knowing the archictecture, is it feasible to run vm single node on Windows?

Unfortunately VictoriaMetrics isn't intended to run under Windows. But it would be great if somebody will add missing bits for running under Windows. I added missing stubs, but there is remaining problem with gozstd. It would be great if somebody could solve it.
gozstd should already support Windows, but it wasn't tested and is outdated now.
