Minutes

===========================================
CI Status

-------------------------------------------
General

* BUG-210 (Patches with dependency fails to apply): Syntax is now
official in the documentation, should be possible to update the script
to look for / parse this information.
   * Owen from the UNH team is working on this ticket.
* BUG-511 (Add check if performance tests are needed): This can also
be implemented to avoid running unnecessary testing.
   * Owen from the UNH team is working on this ticket.
* How to deal with failures from downstream project integrations (i.e.
SPDK or OVS).
   * For example, if there is a planned change, like an API change,
this could break things, in an expected way.  This would cause
failures to be reported from the CI.
   * Another similar example could be a known failure (i.e. bad patch
merged), that has a fix in progress, but it not yet merged, yet all
other patches look to fail for the same reason, can cause confusion to
developers, etc.
   * Could use a process where maintainers are able to make a request
to pull a CI test from production (i.e. reporting to patchworks), by
opening a Bugzilla ticket.  Labs will act on the ticket, but it MUST
remain open until the test is put back into production.  Reporting
maintainer “owns” / assigned the ticket.

-------------------------------------------
Travis CI / OBS

* Travis CI - No updates
* OBS - flooded OpenSUSE lab for storage, needed to reduce the number
of objects being built.  This is fixed for now, but it’s turned off
until there is a deletion strategy in place.
* When to expunge branches from the Github repo, which causes storage
issues.  Test Robot system creates a branch for each patch series, but
it doesn’t have a clear “end point” for when that series is “done” and
the branch can be removed.

-------------------------------------------
UNH-IOL Community Lab

* SPDK is currently failing - David Marchand has submitted a patch for
SPDK to correct the failure.
   * Lab does automatically pull the latest LTS release branch of
SPDK, so the new fix just needs to be merged downstream.
   * Other systems in the lab are currently being updated to support
new version of SPDK
* DTS Scatter is failing - Ferruh Yigit has patch 84248 not accepted
into DPDK yet to address this issue
* DPDK unit testing now equivalent to compile testing to prevent
discrepancies between the two.
* Arm hardware is still being set up for running DTS performance tests
correctly.
   * Working through library needs for the arm machines so DTS will run.
* After 20.11 release, lab needs some support from vendors to help get
finished on a couple of pending items
   * Broadcom 100G card and getting TRex running
   * NXP compile / running using meson build

-------------------------------------------
Intel Lab

* Working on adding some smoke tests to follow the compile testing.
These are based on running some of the DTS tests. Aiming to keep the
running time to around 5 minutes per patch set.

===========================================
Test Development

* Tech Board is planning to look into future plans in December, once
the 20.11 release is done.

===========================================
Any other business

* Next Meeting: December 3, 2020
