In this week’s LAVA team meeting, the LAVA team opens a beta program for new git service (integrated with an optional code-review system/Gerrit), shows you where to learn about multi-node, introduces the new concept of an Image Report Editor, demos a lightweight bootloader class for netbooting lava-test-shell and discusses the use of Jenkins + LAVA to verify LAVA.
Review the summary below and check it out on Youtube: 22 Aug 2013 LAVA Weekly Team Meeting OnAir Broadcast
Beta testing staging.git.l.o & staging.review.l.o by Milo Casagrande
- git-web, gitolite, gerrit working together
- How does a beta tester get started
Guide to multi-node documentation by Neil Williams
- What is Multi-node? Where do I go to find out more about it?
- Multinode & the use of timeouts
- Simultaneously driving many targets with a single dispatcher can create interesting system loads
- LAVA before multi-node can run well on a minimal HW & VMs
- Multi-node LAVA jobs can increase the load for LAVA dispatchers due to the high IO & high cpu utilization during the dispatcher-side image decompression (tgz/gunzip/…).
- LAVA Administrators will need to carefully monitor and adjust resources as necessary.
Image Report Editor by Stevan Radakovic
- An abstraction layer to provide the ability to create and combine mulitple LAVA filters and produce customized/targeted Image Reports that help the test administrator share the results they want to with more flexibility and power.
- Where do I get more information (i.e. cards.l.o)
