Both the Field and more recently the LAVA lab have worked on HOWTOs to fill a need for a getting-up-and-running thread of documentation alongside the more mature reference information. Using material from both of these the session proposes to show how an evaluation installation of LAVA along with a qemu target can be assembled in a VM. The target audience is member engineers or managers who are aware of LAVA and would consider to evaluate a pilot local installation
Due to team size and dynamics, the LAVA dispatcher refactoring has been a slow and gradual push to replace the original device communication logic and we are starting to get closer to completion. Join us for a update and discussion on the current state of the effort, see how current use cases will migrate and how new use cases can be adopted.
An introductory session of a system-level overview at Power State Coordination
* Focus on ARMv8
* Goes top-down from ACPI
* A demo based on the current code in qemu (and/or 96Boards)
* The specifications are very dynamic - what’s onging for ACPI and PSCI
UEFI boot testing with SCT and luvOS automation have stretched the original design scope for LAVA, the session will describe the challenges and needs for ARM server boot test automation going forward in cooperation with the LAVA and CI teams.
ARM FDPIC toolset and kernel patches makes it possible to boot a mmu-less Linux kernel and support userland applications which rely on dynamic loading. No source change are needed to compiler the application (compared to the BFLAT model). The presentation will focus on the toolset structure and characteristics and give some insights on the FDPIC ABI.
Reporting and visualization of test results are the most critical piece of a continuous integration system. QA Reports is a prototype web front end to help developers wade through the massive amounts of test results in a sane manner. This session will provide a brief overview of the application, and then it will be an open discussion on how to improve this solution.
The next generation of HP hardware The Machine will be based on new non-volatile memory (NVM) technologies, such as memristors. This can radically change system and software design, and enable new style of Big Data processing applications. The speaker will discuss the opportunities in NVM programming and the challenges along the way. A brief overview of current solutions will be presented.
We get lots of questions from members during initial HW design, SW implementation and tuning of PM on their platforms. This session will address some of those questions and make general recommendations for new platforms.
