Comment: cool to see this publicly announced (Score 1) 159

by emmastrange (#12729591) Attached to: Linux Kernel Gets Fully Automated Test
I got to work on part of this system, which IBM calls Autobench, for my senior project at PSU. The system is a highly configurable framework which can download, compile, and run various benchmarks and profilers (for example while compiling a kernel). Its all centrally administered, so IBM can run a battery of tests on a variety of different machines at once.

I think Martin Bligh said that IBM has been using this for a while now, automatically downloading kernels upon release and testing them. The new thing is the regression matrix which is posted to the web. Very cool.

When you don't know what to do, walk fast and look worried.

Working...
