Linaro Projects focused on Continuous Integration and Testing
Linaro Automation & Validation Architecture (LAVA)
LAVA is the open source Linaro Automation and Validation Architecture. It is the industry standard software for embedded device and testing automation, but also works with IoT and server-grade devices. It can perform firmware, OS (boot and functional), application, and producer-consumer testing. Being the creators of LAVA, Linaro has over a decade of experience refining this automation software. Linaro’s members guide development of represents member interest.>> Learn more about LAVA
TuxSuite™ by Linaro is the backbone of Linaro’s testing efforts. This is now available as a commercial service to help anyone interested in improving their Linux kernel testing to do so rapidly and at scale. Take your testing from limited and infrequent to constant and expansive with TuxSuite™.>> Learn more about TuxSuite™
Linux Kernel Functional Test (LKFT)
Linaro’s Linux Kernel Quality program covers both Linux kernel testing and testing of the LTS-derived Android-Common Kernel. Linaro’s Linux Kernel Functional Testing framework (LKFT) is the most reliable Linux long-term-stable functional test framework in the industry. On a weekly basis, across the latest 6 Linux LTS releases, the linux-next branch and linux-mainline branches, Linaro build-tests and reports on over 350 release+architecture+target combinations on every git-branch push. We run functional-testing on nearly 40 of these combinations on real and emulated hardware and report back consistently with results in under 48 hours. We have run over 156 Million Test runs of the Linux LTS trees to date against a variety of embedded, emulated, and server platforms. We work weekly with LTS maintainers to execute testing and report regressions on the latest release-candidates before the releases are made.
We also build and functional test (Android CTS & VTS) Android Common Kernels weekly and report regressions in the Linux kernel and AOSP directly to Linux upstream maintainers and Google respectively. To date we’ve run over 530 Million Test runs against a variety of mobile chipsets, preventing regressions before they ever hit production mobile devices.

Software Quality Dashboard Software (SQUAD)
SQUAD is Linaro’s open source Software Quality Dashboard software. It is cloud-deployable and scalable software for scheduling, aggregating, the collection of software test-results, and presenting them directly via reporting front-end, or via the reporting API for customer results composition. SQUAD is also able to maintain software baselines, perform results comparisons, and generate email reports using project templates. It supports mixed-tenant results with a permission and access layer that can give granular access to public and private data separately.>> Learn more about SQUAD
