Minutes

===========================================================
General Announcements

* Need general updates / deck updates for the governing board on April 19.
Aaron will work on getting lab updates prepared.

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

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

* Brandon Lo will be graduating in May and leaving the UNH-IOL Community
Lab at the end of April.  Adam Hassick (existing team member) will be
taking over Brandon’s work on the CI testing containers / unit testing etc.
* Jeremy Spewock will also be working with the DPDK teams, to help take
over some system administration roles.
* Owen Hilyard will still be participating in the team and is focused on
the DTS improvements and bare-metal testing.
* Community Lab SOW for 2022 was completed by LF.
* Broadcom NICs / DUT is currently offline, because of a hardware failure.
Replacement hardware has been ordered, ETA is next week.
* Lab is still working to complete the setup of the ARM Ampere hardware.
Systems required some firmware updates on the raid and bios to get to a
stable state.
* VirtIO smoke testing is now online / reporting up to patchworks for the
Intel systems.  Working on fixing the issues with VirtIO performance tests
on the Intel systems.  To support the other systems, more general fixes are
needed, as the DTS implementation assumes (hardcodes) that Tester and DUT
are the same system. This is not the case for most Community Lab
deployments. Current work plan is to address those fixes as part of the DTS
improvements work.
* Windows unit testing has been set up to run, but is waiting on one
remaining patch to merge to get a clean / all passing run on the main DPDK
branch. Once that is confirmed / merged, we’ll enable the Windows unit
testing in the CI to automatically report up to patchworks.
* Continuing to work on the FIPS testing / sample application fixes to
support the new NIST API system. Patches submitted, but not merged.  Need
support from the maintainers to merge changes, to enable some testing to
“turn on” while the other parts of the sample application are brought up to
date.

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

* Issues on the system were being missed, because of the date exposed for
the Patches API, this was fixed by using the Event API.
* Still having an issue with 502 errors from the Patchwork API server.
Working on trying to lower the frequency of “hitting” the patchwork API.
Ali has been looking into this, but hasn’t come up with a solution yet.
* Working on the DTS merge into DPDK, look at how the Intel CI systems can
support DTS testing / changes merging into the DPDK main branch.
* Intel is working on the validation of the LTS branches (19.11 and newer).

-----------------------------------------------------------
Github Actions / OBS

* Currently a partial outage on the Githab actions REST interface.  The
robot / runner is trying to work around it, but it may be causing missing
reports for some patches.  Aaron has asked for an ETA on when the REST API
will be fixed, but no update yet.
* Series applied to enable Fedora 35 testing, in addition to the Ubuntu
testing.  This is based on adding the containers to the Github systems.
Solved the image pull issues, by pulling from the Fedora registry directly.

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

* DTS Improvements WG:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1E2mkTHNQ5vyln1JvnJTil15cjacUTXP7LXb9K960Vxs/edit#
* Team is focused on reviewing / dividing up the patches for the initial
submission of the framework components into the DPDK main.  Aiming to get
this in for the 22.07 release (it’s the goal).
* Meeting happens each Wednesday, 9am Eastern USA time.
* May need some CI resources for the effort, especially as the framework is
being divided up.

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

* Next Meeting: April 28, 2022
