This presentation will give an overview of the Linux UEFI Validation (LUV) project; its motivations and objectives. LUV creates a Linux validation OS which can be used by Linux kernel developers and firmware engineers alike to reduce the development and enabling time of Linux on UEFI systems. It is an architecture-agnostic, automated framework consisting of several open-source test-suites packaged into a cohesive and easy-to-use product. It aims to help uncover bugs in the implementation of UEFI firmware and Linux kernel thereby improving the quality of the interaction between the UEFI firmware and the Linux kernel.

LVC20-205 Running ACS on Arm's Neoverse Reference Design PlatformsMonday, September 21, 2020
The Arm ServerReady compliance program provides a solution to ensure that the Arm servers comply to standards at both hardware and firmware interface. The Arm’s Server Architectural Compliance Suite (ACS) is such a solution and covers the compliance validation for hardware requirements (SBSA) and firmware requirements (SBBR).
This presentation talks about running ACS on Arm servers with specific focus on experiences of running ACS on Arm’s Neoverse Reference Design (RD) platforms. Key takeaways for audience include short introduction of SBSA and SBBR test cases, procedures of running ACS, important aspects at the platform software level for SBSA and SBBR compliance and ACS test results for Arm’s Neoverse RD platforms. This session acts as a quick start guide for running ACS on an Arm platform and uses Arm’s Neoverse Reference Design (RD) platform as an example.
SAN19-306 - The Convergence of Big Data and AIFriday, October 4, 2019
Big Data is one of the key use cases for Arm servers, and the Big Data frameworks like Hadoop and Spark have been enabled generally for Arm architecture, while the capabilities of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in the Big Data frameworks can be important for vendors to have competitive solutions with Arm servers. This session will do some introduction about the ecosystem to integrate AI with Big Data, and some collaboration opportunities in the community can be discussed.
LVC21-310: Unifying Kernel Test Reporting with KernelCIThursday, March 25, 2021
The landscape of Linux kernel testing and CI is notoriously fragmented. Systems like Linaro's LKFT, Intel's 0day, Google's Syzbot, Red Hat's CKI, and others, are each running their own tests, sending separate emails, and hosting different dashboards. As a result, developers have to cope with multiple diverse reports arriving at various stages of development cycle, and it's difficult to correlate and analyze results. The Linux Foundation's KernelCI project has been working on a CI stack and service for all to use, which is seeing increasing adoption. However, the project has also started a new effort aimed at already-established CI systems, letting participants keep their setups, but submit testing results to a common database and reporting system, using a simple, extensible protocol. The system behind the new effort is called "KCIDB" (for "KernelCI Database") and is already receiving reports from the native KernelCI tests, RedHat's CKI and Google's Syzbot, with more systems working on joining. Our aim is to develop a unified report protocol and schema, maintain an open result database, provide a single dashboard, and to send email notifications aggregating the data from all the participating systems. We want to reduce developer load, and make it easier to discover and analyze kernel testing results. Join this session to find out how far we've got, how our dashboard and email notifications look, how we're pulling this off, what the protocol and the schema is like, and how to start sending your reports or join the development.
