This may not be the best place to discuss JPRT infrastructure, but I'm curious
how the automated testing knows which systems have which prerequisites
available. e.g. which system runs linux/x86 versus linux/arm

Obviously, binaries need to be matched to the systems that can run them.
Would it be possible for that "available systems" mapping to include the
available memory and cpu speeds. e.g. Information from
"cat /proc/{mem,cpu}info" or from "cpufreq-info" command
