I like using CruiseControl. It's free open source and has a lot of good
features. Integration with lots of stuff.
Comments on CC per your numbered requirements:
1) That's up to your Ant/Maven build configuration that it calls. For
example, we use Maven and have Maven install the build artifacts in the
local Maven repository for use by other components/projects.
2) It has one console (web app) for all configured projects. I have not
used its distributed builds capability.
3) It is a Java program that runs the build scheduler, and a Java web app
for the monitoring and actions. It also has a JMX interface and a simple
web interface for manipulating it. There are also monitoring plugins for
FireFox, an X10 interface, email sending, and other notification (status
It also has a Swing thick client for monitoring and configuration.
4) Not sure what to say - we've not had reliability problems.

Subject: [p4] Build tools
We have been using AnthillPro for our build tool, and have decided that the
time has come to look at other options. I was curious what other Perforce
users would recommend. Our nightly builds run for 3-4 hours on
3 different machines. Other requirements:
1) Reuse of build components
2) One console for build management, across multiple machines.
3) Must be able to kick off builds on windows, Unix and Linux
4) Reliability - this is our big issue right now
