Contribute to Kernel-CI with a new Lab


Santiago.Esteban via info
 

Hi KernelCI,

A few months back I contacted you about adding a new lab to KernelCI infrastructure. It took us longer than I wished, but now we finally have been able to connect our farm to an internal KernelCI deployment (using docker).

As I explained before, our farm holds 4 boards with different SoCs from Microchip (and Atmel): Sam9x60ek, Sama5d2_xplained, Sama5d3_xplained and Sama5d4_xplained. All of then with mainline support.

Our setup, does not uses Lava and it relies on Labgrid to perform the tests. We use "kci_data" tool to publish test results on KernelCI.

We would like to work with you to be able to publish these results. Will it be possible to get a token for the staging database? I'm sure that there are things that need to be polished on our json files.


Best regards,

Santi

That's very interesting. :) Do you have published the interface code
somewhere? I've been trying to find some time to do that myself, but it
seems you've beaten me to it. ;)

Hi Jan,

No, I haven't publish it, till now. I've never though it would be useful
to anybody but me  ;)

I have a python script that is tailored (too much) to our systems. It
performs some actions that depend on our infrastructure and how I've
implemented the labgrid tests (for example, I grab the results from a
pytest  json report). At the end, it creates a "tmeta_<board>.json" file
(equivalent to the "bmeta.json") that is later published with "kci_data"
tool.

It could be used as an inspiration to make a more generic
"kci_labgrid_test" tool if there are interest, but, all kernelci
important stuff, still needs to be validated ;)

I have attached it to this email the script and (more important) an
example of the output it produces.

BR,

Santi

There is already a plugin mechanism behind kci_test to have
specific implementations for generating the test job description
data and submitting it to a remote lab. At the moment, only LAVA
has an implementation but it sounds like Labgrid would be a neat
addition. The main challenge I guess, is that there isn't any
built-in API for Labgrid to receive job descriptions and run
them.

One way to address this issue is to provide notifications with
jobs to run, and a lab using Labgrid would subscribe to it. As
we're planning to refactor kernelci-backend and also come up with
a more generic pipeline mechanis than Jenkins, we should be able
to have this kind of notification system in place anyway in order
to corrdinate the different components of the pipeline in a
modular way. It would be great to use some Labgrid labs as part
of this exercise. If you're interested, we can discuss that when
we have some clear ideas about the main part of work.

Thanks! It's great to see that it doesn't really take much code

Hi Guillaume,

Labgrid does not perform any task related to build. It focuses on
testing in real hardware. The build stage is performed somewhere else.
It is a different approach than KernelCI and LAVA. In our case, we
trigger the builds in Jenkins and also Jenkins executes the Labgrid
pytest scripts. It would be great to be able to push KCI jobs into a
generic Jenkins server. But, for me, the most difficult part would be
convince IT department to allow a communication from a external source
into the corporate network. I already know the answer....

One way to address this issue is to provide notifications with
jobs to run, and a lab using Labgrid would subscribe to it. As
we're planning to refactor kernelci-backend and also come up with
a more generic pipeline mechanis than Jenkins, we should be able

A publish/subscribe approach will work perfectly to overcome the

Thanks! It's great to see that it doesn't really take much code

Labgrid only cares about  3 things: image to test, board in the farm to
use and test to pass. Most of the code is to create a json output test
result compatible with the "kci_data" tool.

Absolutely, that's the same as with LAVA. The idea is that the
same builds from kernelci.org can be used in any lab, they're
just plain kernel builds. What we could work on is to make it
easier for labs like yours and in particular when using Labgrid
to receive some data when there's a new test to run. That would
include the URLs to get the kernel image, modules, dtb,
user-space, commands to run the tests etc...

Great. There is a roadmap item on GitHub about this:

https://github.com/kernelci/kernelci-core/issues/315

We've only just started, with a very basic kci_data
implementation. This should be broken down into a series of
tasks such as: cleaning up the kernelci-backend API for receiving
results, providing a subscription mechanism and having a
real-world reference system to test it (e.g. a Labgrid lab). We
probably should schedule a meeting to go through that in January.

I have attached it to this email the script and (more important) an

Hi KernelCI,

A few months back I contacted you about adding a new lab to KernelCI
infrastructure. It took us longer than I wished, but now we finally
have been able to connect our farm to an internal KernelCI deployment
(using docker).

As I explained before, our farm holds 4 boards with different SoCs
from Microchip (and Atmel): Sam9x60ek, Sama5d2_xplained,
Sama5d3_xplained and Sama5d4_xplained. All of then with mainline
support.

Our setup, does not uses Lava and it relies on Labgrid to perform the
tests. We use "kci_data" tool to publish test results on KernelCI.
That's very interesting. :) Do you have published the interface code
somewhere? I've been trying to find some time to do that myself, but it
seems you've beaten me to it. ;)

Jan
Hi Jan,

No, I haven't publish it, till now. I've never though it would be useful
to anybody but me ;)

I have a python script that is tailored (too much) to our systems. It
performs some actions that depend on our infrastructure and how I've
implemented the labgrid tests (for example, I grab the results from a
pytest json report). At the end, it creates a "tmeta_<board>.json" file
(equivalent to the "bmeta.json") that is later published with "kci_data"
tool.

It could be used as an inspiration to make a more generic
"kci_labgrid_test" tool if there are interest, but, all kernelci
important stuff, still needs to be validated ;)
There is already a plugin mechanism behind kci_test to have
specific implementations for generating the test job description
data and submitting it to a remote lab. At the moment, only LAVA
has an implementation but it sounds like Labgrid would be a neat
addition. The main challenge I guess, is that there isn't any
built-in API for Labgrid to receive job descriptions and run
them.
Hi Guillaume,

Labgrid does not perform any task related to build. It focuses on
testing in real hardware. The build stage is performed somewhere else.
It is a different approach than KernelCI and LAVA. In our case, we
trigger the builds in Jenkins and also Jenkins executes the Labgrid
pytest scripts. It would be great to be able to push KCI jobs into a
generic Jenkins server. But, for me, the most difficult part would be
convince IT department to allow a communication from a external source
into the corporate network. I already know the answer....
Absolutely, that's the same as with LAVA. The idea is that the
same builds from kernelci.org can be used in any lab, they're
just plain kernel builds. What we could work on is to make it
easier for labs like yours and in particular when using Labgrid
to receive some data when there's a new test to run. That would
include the URLs to get the kernel image, modules, dtb,
user-space, commands to run the tests etc...

One way to address this issue is to provide notifications with
jobs to run, and a lab using Labgrid would subscribe to it. As
we're planning to refactor kernelci-backend and also come up with
a more generic pipeline mechanis than Jenkins, we should be able
to have this kind of notification system in place anyway in order
to corrdinate the different components of the pipeline in a
modular way. It would be great to use some Labgrid labs as part
of this exercise. If you're interested, we can discuss that when
we have some clear ideas about the main part of work.
A publish/subscribe approach will work perfectly to overcome the
corporate IT hurdles. Of course, I 'm interested. Please let me know how
can I be part of this.
Great. There is a roadmap item on GitHub about this:

https://github.com/kernelci/kernelci-core/issues/315

We've only just started, with a very basic kci_data
implementation. This should be broken down into a series of
tasks such as: cleaning up the kernelci-backend API for receiving
results, providing a subscription mechanism and having a
real-world reference system to test it (e.g. a Labgrid lab). We
probably should schedule a meeting to go through that in January.

I have attached it to this email the script and (more important) an
example of the output it produces.
Thanks! It's great to see that it doesn't really take much code
to get some KernelCI jobs to run in Labgrid.
Labgrid only cares about 3 things: image to test, board in the farm to
use and test to pass. Most of the code is to create a json output test
result compatible with the "kci_data" tool.
Exactly.

BR,

Santi

We would like to work with you to be able to publish these results.
Will it be possible to get a token for the staging database? I'm sure
that there are things that need to be polished on our json files.
Absolutely, I'll send you a staging API token privately. Also,
are you on IRC? That would help with discussing things and
addressing any issues.
Great! I'm not ussually in IRC.... I'll be more available there (as
"sesteban"). I'm waiting the token!
Sent! Awaiting some data now :)
Hi Guillaume,

I've this credential/token error when trying to push a kernel build:

        requests.exceptions.HTTPError: 403 Client Error: Operation not
permitted: provided token is not         authorized for url:
https://api.staging.kernelci.org/upload
        Error: can not push kernel: ../builds/linux-mainline,
https://api.staging.kernelci.org/test, "my-token"

Something misconfigured in the database?
Yes, it looks like an oversight in the part of the code that adds
lab tokens as it doesn't enable the permission to send results
via the generic test API... I've fixed that directly in the
database and tried your token with kci_data, it works now.

Also I've created this issue on GitHub to fix it properly:

https://github.com/kernelci/kernelci-backend/issues/268


Let's hope this works for you, and please let us know how it goes
with the Labgrid integration.

Thanks,
Guillaume

Hi,

I think I had the same problem with my local instance of KernelCI. I had
to manually update the properties for the lab. At the time, I thought
that it was not a bug and that somehow LAVA could do it right.

Unfortunatelly, the problem persists.

Traceback (most recent call last):

If you tested the token locally and it works, it might be a problem
related to the IP address allowed to push data in the lab...

The token works, but it's a "lab" token with permissions to
submit test results. It's not for submitting kernel builds,
which is what you're trying to do here.

Can you try using builds from storage.kernelci.org? They come
with a bmeta.json file to get the kernel revision and all related
meta-data you need when submitting the test results for a given
kernel build.

If you want to test some kernel revisions not currently built on
kernelci.org you can open a GitHub issue to request it:

https://github.com/kernelci/kernelci-core/issues/new?assignees=&labels=&template=new-kernel-branch.md&title=Add+branch+BRANCH+from+TREE

We would like to work with you to be able to publish these results.
Will it be possible to get a token for the staging database? I'm sure
that there are things that need to be polished on our json files.
Absolutely, I'll send you a staging API token privately. Also,
are you on IRC? That would help with discussing things and
addressing any issues.
Great! I'm not ussually in IRC.... I'll be more available there (as
"sesteban"). I'm waiting the token!

Hi Guillaume,

I've this credential/token error when trying to push a kernel build:

requests.exceptions.HTTPError: 403 Client Error: Operation not
permitted: provided token is not authorized for url:
https://api.staging.kernelci.org/upload
Error: can not push kernel: ../builds/linux-mainline,
https://api.staging.kernelci.org/test, "my-token"

Something misconfigured in the database?
Yes, it looks like an oversight in the part of the code that adds
lab tokens as it doesn't enable the permission to send results
via the generic test API... I've fixed that directly in the
database and tried your token with kci_data, it works now.

Also I've created this issue on GitHub to fix it properly:

https://github.com/kernelci/kernelci-backend/issues/268


Let's hope this works for you, and please let us know how it goes
with the Labgrid integration.
Hi,

I think I had the same problem with my local instance of KernelCI. I had
to manually update the properties for the lab. At the time, I thought
that it was not a bug and that somehow LAVA could do it right.

Unfortunatelly, the problem persists.

The token works, but it's a "lab" token with permissions to
submit test results. It's not for submitting kernel builds,
which is what you're trying to do here.

Can you try using builds from storage.kernelci.org? They come
with a bmeta.json file to get the kernel revision and all related
meta-data you need when submitting the test results for a given
kernel build.

If you want to test some kernel revisions not currently built on
kernelci.org you can open a GitHub issue to request it:

Hi Guillaume,

I have finally push some results in the staging database. I'm sorry that
took me so long, but we just had a bank holiday here in Spain :)

https://staging.kernelci.org/soc/at91/job/mainline/kernel/v5.10-rc7-10-ga68a0262abda/plan/baseline/

At first glance looks ok, but if you click on the "Full results"
(https://staging.kernelci.org/test/plan/id/5fd21e6c81bee0f1bf417ce4/)
the page is broken... Well,  the results received from the database are
not complete. I checked the javascript in view-tests-plan-id.2020.10.js
and I found that  there are missing fields like "build_id". It seems
that not all the build information are available to all  "defconfigs" at
the staging database. The /test/plan/id page works fine in my local
kernelci deployment.

I chose the build manually, because the token that you provide cannot
access the https://api.staging.kernelci.org/build information.

While the issue #315 is solved, could we find a easy way to publish
results?I could poll the backend to check for new builds, do the tests,
and finally publish them.

As how to solve #315 for good, I would suggest using Autobahn
(https://autobahn.readthedocs.io/en/latest/). Labgrid is build around it
and works like a charm. I'm no expert, maybe Pengutronix people can
share their experience and recommend this path or another.

p.s I have attached the json file that I have pushed into the staging
database using kci_data, in case you need to look at it.

Hi KernelCI,

A few months back I contacted you about adding a new lab to KernelCI
infrastructure. It took us longer than I wished, but now we finally
have been able to connect our farm to an internal KernelCI deployment
(using docker).

As I explained before, our farm holds 4 boards with different SoCs
from Microchip (and Atmel): Sam9x60ek, Sama5d2_xplained,
Sama5d3_xplained and Sama5d4_xplained. All of then with mainline
support.

Our setup, does not uses Lava and it relies on Labgrid to perform the
tests. We use "kci_data" tool to publish test results on KernelCI.
That's very interesting. :) Do you have published the interface code
somewhere? I've been trying to find some time to do that myself, but it
seems you've beaten me to it. ;)

Regards

Hi Jan,

No, I haven't publish it, till now. I've never though it would be useful
to anybody but me ;)

I have a python script that is tailored (too much) to our systems. It
performs some actions that depend on our infrastructure and how I've
implemented the labgrid tests (for example, I grab the results from a
pytest json report). At the end, it creates a "tmeta_<board>.json" file
(equivalent to the "bmeta.json") that is later published with "kci_data"
tool.

It could be used as an inspiration to make a more generic
"kci_labgrid_test" tool if there are interest, but, all kernelci
important stuff, still needs to be validated ;)
There is already a plugin mechanism behind kci_test to have
specific implementations for generating the test job description
data and submitting it to a remote lab. At the moment, only LAVA
has an implementation but it sounds like Labgrid would be a neat
addition. The main challenge I guess, is that there isn't any
built-in API for Labgrid to receive job descriptions and run
them.
Hi Guillaume,

Labgrid does not perform any task related to build. It focuses on
testing in real hardware. The build stage is performed somewhere else.
It is a different approach than KernelCI and LAVA. In our case, we
trigger the builds in Jenkins and also Jenkins executes the Labgrid
pytest scripts. It would be great to be able to push KCI jobs into a
generic Jenkins server. But, for me, the most difficult part would be
convince IT department to allow a communication from a external source
into the corporate network. I already know the answer....
Absolutely, that's the same as with LAVA. The idea is that the
same builds from kernelci.org can be used in any lab, they're
just plain kernel builds. What we could work on is to make it
easier for labs like yours and in particular when using Labgrid
to receive some data when there's a new test to run. That would
include the URLs to get the kernel image, modules, dtb,
user-space, commands to run the tests etc...

One way to address this issue is to provide notifications with
jobs to run, and a lab using Labgrid would subscribe to it. As
we're planning to refactor kernelci-backend and also come up with
a more generic pipeline mechanis than Jenkins, we should be able
to have this kind of notification system in place anyway in order
to corrdinate the different components of the pipeline in a
modular way. It would be great to use some Labgrid labs as part
of this exercise. If you're interested, we can discuss that when
we have some clear ideas about the main part of work.
A publish/subscribe approach will work perfectly to overcome the
corporate IT hurdles. Of course, I 'm interested. Please let me know how
can I be part of this.
Great. There is a roadmap item on GitHub about this:

https://github.com/kernelci/kernelci-core/issues/315

We've only just started, with a very basic kci_data
implementation. This should be broken down into a series of
tasks such as: cleaning up the kernelci-backend API for receiving
results, providing a subscription mechanism and having a
real-world reference system to test it (e.g. a Labgrid lab). We
probably should schedule a meeting to go through that in January.

I have attached it to this email the script and (more important) an
example of the output it produces.
Thanks! It's great to see that it doesn't really take much code
to get some KernelCI jobs to run in Labgrid.
Labgrid only cares about 3 things: image to test, board in the farm to
use and test to pass. Most of the code is to create a json output test
result compatible with the "kci_data" tool.
Exactly.

Hi Guillaume,

About pushing data into staging... Could you add some kernel builds with
"sama5_defconfig" and "at91_dt_defconfig" configurations for
mainline/master(or any other tree/branch )? I have not found those
configurations in the staging database, I would like to test this
thoroughly.

In a (kind of) different topic, what is the status of Generic Lab
Support #315? Are there any plans to implement this soon? I could
dedicate time to push forward this task, but definitively, I would need
some steering to avoid wasting both my time and your time.

Best regards,

While the issue #315 is solved, could we find a easy way to publish

Yes that is what other non-LAVA labs already do. It's strange
your token doesn't let you read the build data, I'll check the
permissions associated with it. What is the query you're using?

As how to solve #315 for good, I would suggest using Autobahn
(https://autobahn.readthedocs.io/en/latest/). Labgrid is build around it
and works like a charm. I'm no expert, maybe Pengutronix people can
share their experience and recommend this path or another.
OK thanks for sharing this. I've started to look at CloudEvents:

https://cloudevents.io/

I guess it would be good to list all the existing potential
solutions and compare to choose what works best for the KernelCI
use-case.

Best regards,

Santi

p.s I have attached the json file that I have pushed into the staging
database using kci_data, in case you need to look at it.
Hi Guillaume,
Sorry for the delay in replying, we've been going through a lot
of things with KernelCI lately to grow our team of maintainers.
Hopefully communication should become smoother now :)

About pushing data into staging... Could you add some kernel builds with
"sama5_defconfig" and "at91_dt_defconfig" configurations for
mainline/master(or any other tree/branch )? I have not found those
configurations in the staging database, I would like to test this
thoroughly.
We can have them built once on staging, but we're not going to
enable them all the time because staging builds have to remain
limited to the bare minimum. You can however get those builds
from production:

* sama5_defconfig https://kernelci.org/build/id/60331b14c9b222ae1aaddd1a/
* at91_dt_defconfig https://kernelci.org/build/id/60331a4b0b58f1585faddcb6/

You can download the build artifacts and the meta-data from there
and should be able to run some tests with these builds. Would
that work for you?

In a (kind of) different topic, what is the status of Generic Lab
Support #315? Are there any plans to implement this soon? I could
dedicate time to push forward this task, but definitively, I would need
some steering to avoid wasting both my time and your time.
As mentioned in my earlier email about KCIDB, we've been trying
to fix the blocking issues with submitting data from
kernelci-bakend to KCIDB. This should get resolved in a week or
two hopefully, then kernelci-backend will need to go through some
redesign. With the code and experience we have, I think it will
be a rather straightforward development "sprint" but it might
take a couple of months of maturing to get that working really
well and enable it in production. We should have a dedicated
meeting to discuss that in greater detail in the coming weeks.

Best wishes,
Guillaume

Hi KernelCI,

A few months back I contacted you about adding a new lab to KernelCI
infrastructure. It took us longer than I wished, but now we finally
have been able to connect our farm to an internal KernelCI deployment
(using docker).

As I explained before, our farm holds 4 boards with different SoCs
from Microchip (and Atmel): Sam9x60ek, Sama5d2_xplained,
Sama5d3_xplained and Sama5d4_xplained. All of then with mainline
support.

Our setup, does not uses Lava and it relies on Labgrid to perform the
tests. We use "kci_data" tool to publish test results on KernelCI.
That's very interesting. :) Do you have published the interface code
somewhere? I've been trying to find some time to do that myself, but it
seems you've beaten me to it. ;)

Regards
Jan
Hi Jan,

No, I haven't publish it, till now. I've never though it would be useful
to anybody but me ;)

I have a python script that is tailored (too much) to our systems. It
performs some actions that depend on our infrastructure and how I've
implemented the labgrid tests (for example, I grab the results from a
pytest json report). At the end, it creates a "tmeta_<board>.json" file
(equivalent to the "bmeta.json") that is later published with "kci_data"
tool.

It could be used as an inspiration to make a more generic
"kci_labgrid_test" tool if there are interest, but, all kernelci
important stuff, still needs to be validated ;)
There is already a plugin mechanism behind kci_test to have
specific implementations for generating the test job description
data and submitting it to a remote lab. At the moment, only LAVA
has an implementation but it sounds like Labgrid would be a neat
addition. The main challenge I guess, is that there isn't any
built-in API for Labgrid to receive job descriptions and run
them.
Hi Guillaume,

Labgrid does not perform any task related to build. It focuses on
testing in real hardware. The build stage is performed somewhere else.
It is a different approach than KernelCI and LAVA. In our case, we
trigger the builds in Jenkins and also Jenkins executes the Labgrid
pytest scripts. It would be great to be able to push KCI jobs into a
generic Jenkins server. But, for me, the most difficult part would be
convince IT department to allow a communication from a external source
into the corporate network. I already know the answer....
Absolutely, that's the same as with LAVA. The idea is that the
same builds from kernelci.org can be used in any lab, they're
just plain kernel builds. What we could work on is to make it
easier for labs like yours and in particular when using Labgrid
to receive some data when there's a new test to run. That would
include the URLs to get the kernel image, modules, dtb,
user-space, commands to run the tests etc...

One way to address this issue is to provide notifications with
jobs to run, and a lab using Labgrid would subscribe to it. As
we're planning to refactor kernelci-backend and also come up with
a more generic pipeline mechanis than Jenkins, we should be able
to have this kind of notification system in place anyway in order
to corrdinate the different components of the pipeline in a
modular way. It would be great to use some Labgrid labs as part
of this exercise. If you're interested, we can discuss that when
we have some clear ideas about the main part of work.
A publish/subscribe approach will work perfectly to overcome the
corporate IT hurdles. Of course, I 'm interested. Please let me know how
can I be part of this.
Great. There is a roadmap item on GitHub about this:

https://github.com/kernelci/kernelci-core/issues/315

We've only just started, with a very basic kci_data
implementation. This should be broken down into a series of
tasks such as: cleaning up the kernelci-backend API for receiving
results, providing a subscription mechanism and having a
real-world reference system to test it (e.g. a Labgrid lab). We
probably should schedule a meeting to go through that in January.

I have attached it to this email the script and (more important) an
example of the output it produces.
Thanks! It's great to see that it doesn't really take much code
to get some KernelCI jobs to run in Labgrid.
Labgrid only cares about 3 things: image to test, board in the farm to
use and test to pass. Most of the code is to create a json output test
result compatible with the "kci_data" tool.
Exactly.

BR,

Santi

We would like to work with you to be able to publish these results.
Will it be possible to get a token for the staging database? I'm sure
that there are things that need to be polished on our json files.
Absolutely, I'll send you a staging API token privately. Also,
are you on IRC? That would help with discussing things and
addressing any issues.
Great! I'm not ussually in IRC.... I'll be more available there (as
"sesteban"). I'm waiting the token!
Sent! Awaiting some data now :)
Hi Guillaume,

I've this credential/token error when trying to push a kernel build:

requests.exceptions.HTTPError: 403 Client Error: Operation not
permitted: provided token is not authorized for url:
https://api.staging.kernelci.org/upload
Error: can not push kernel: ../builds/linux-mainline,
https://api.staging.kernelci.org/test, "my-token"

Something misconfigured in the database?
Yes, it looks like an oversight in the part of the code that adds
lab tokens as it doesn't enable the permission to send results
via the generic test API... I've fixed that directly in the
database and tried your token with kci_data, it works now.

Also I've created this issue on GitHub to fix it properly:

https://github.com/kernelci/kernelci-backend/issues/268


Let's hope this works for you, and please let us know how it goes
with the Labgrid integration.
Hi,

I think I had the same problem with my local instance of KernelCI. I had
to manually update the properties for the lab. At the time, I thought
that it was not a bug and that somehow LAVA could do it right.

Unfortunatelly, the problem persists.

Traceback (most recent call last):

If you tested the token locally and it works, it might be a problem
related to the IP address allowed to push data in the lab...
The token works, but it's a "lab" token with permissions to
submit test results. It's not for submitting kernel builds,
which is what you're trying to do here.

Can you try using builds from storage.kernelci.org? They come
with a bmeta.json file to get the kernel revision and all related
meta-data you need when submitting the test results for a given
kernel build.

If you want to test some kernel revisions not currently built on
kernelci.org you can open a GitHub issue to request it:

https://github.com/kernelci/kernelci-core/issues/new?assignees=&labels=&template=new-kernel-branch.md&title=Add+branch+BRANCH+from+TREE

Thanks,
Guillaume
Hi Guillaume,

I have finally push some results in the staging database. I'm sorry that
took me so long, but we just had a bank holiday here in Spain :)

https://staging.kernelci.org/soc/at91/job/mainline/kernel/v5.10-rc7-10-ga68a0262abda/plan/baseline/

At first glance looks ok, but if you click on the "Full results"
(https://staging.kernelci.org/test/plan/id/5fd21e6c81bee0f1bf417ce4/)
the page is broken... Well, the results received from the database are
not complete. I checked the javascript in view-tests-plan-id.2020.10.js
and I found that there are missing fields like "build_id". It seems
that not all the build information are available to all "defconfigs" at
the staging database. The /test/plan/id page works fine in my local
kernelci deployment.

I chose the build manually, because the token that you provide cannot
access the https://api.staging.kernelci.org/build information.

While the issue #315 is solved, could we find a easy way to publish
results?I could poll the backend to check for new builds, do the tests,
and finally publish them.
Yes that is what other non-LAVA labs already do. It's strange
your token doesn't let you read the build data, I'll check the
permissions associated with it. What is the query you're using?

As how to solve #315 for good, I would suggest using Autobahn
(https://autobahn.readthedocs.io/en/latest/). Labgrid is build around it
and works like a charm. I'm no expert, maybe Pengutronix people can
share their experience and recommend this path or another.
OK thanks for sharing this. I've started to look at CloudEvents:

https://cloudevents.io/

I guess it would be good to list all the existing potential
solutions and compare to choose what works best for the KernelCI
use-case.
I'll look at it.

Best regards,

Santi

p.s I have attached the json file that I have pushed into the staging
database using kci_data, in case you need to look at it.
Hi Guillaume,
Sorry for the delay in replying, we've been going through a lot
of things with KernelCI lately to grow our team of maintainers.
Hopefully communication should become smoother now :)

About pushing data into staging... Could you add some kernel builds with
"sama5_defconfig" and "at91_dt_defconfig" configurations for
mainline/master(or any other tree/branch )? I have not found those
configurations in the staging database, I would like to test this
thoroughly.
We can have them built once on staging, but we're not going to
enable them all the time because staging builds have to remain
limited to the bare minimum. You can however get those builds
from production:

* sama5_defconfig https://kernelci.org/build/id/60331b14c9b222ae1aaddd1a/
* at91_dt_defconfig https://kernelci.org/build/id/60331a4b0b58f1585faddcb6/

You can download the build artifacts and the meta-data from there
and should be able to run some tests with these builds. Would
that work for you?
I'll check with those builds. Thanks.

In a (kind of) different topic, what is the status of Generic Lab
Support #315? Are there any plans to implement this soon? I could
dedicate time to push forward this task, but definitively, I would need
some steering to avoid wasting both my time and your time.
As mentioned in my earlier email about KCIDB, we've been trying
to fix the blocking issues with submitting data from
kernelci-bakend to KCIDB. This should get resolved in a week or
two hopefully, then kernelci-backend will need to go through some
redesign. With the code and experience we have, I think it will
be a rather straightforward development "sprint" but it might
take a couple of months of maturing to get that working really
well and enable it in production. We should have a dedicated
meeting to discuss that in greater detail in the coming weeks.

Best wishes,
Guillaume
I'll be patience ;)

Thank you very much,

Santi
