From Jenkins to Fuego [edit section]

Environment variables passed during a build [edit section]

Built-in Jenkins variables for shell script jobs [edit section]

BUILD_ID
The current test run id. As of (at least) Jenkins version 2.32.1, this is the same as the BUILD_NUMBER.
BUILD_NUMBER
The current test run number, such as "153". This appears to be selected as the next numerical number in sequence, by the Jenkins system, at the start of a job.
BUILD_TAG
String of "jenkins-${JOB_NAME}-${BUILD_NUMBER}". Convenient to put into a resource file, a jar file, etc for easier identification.
BUILD_URL
Full URL of this test run, like http://server:port/jenkins/job/foo/15/
EXECUTOR_NUMBER
The unique number that identifies the current executor (among executors of the same machine) that's carrying out this test run. This is the number you see in the "test executor status", except that the number starts from 0, not 1.
JENKINS_HOME
The absolute path of the directory assigned on the master node for Jenkins to store data.
JENKINS_URL
Full URL of Jenkins, like http://server:port/jenkins/
JOB_NAME
Name of runned test or test suite, such as "foo" or "foo/bar". In Fuego, this will be something like: Functional.foo or Benchmark.bar
JOB_URL
Full URL of this test or test suite, like http://server:port/jenkins/job/foo/
NODE_LABELS
Whitespace-separated list of labels that the node is assigned.
NODE_NAME
Name of the slave if the test run is on a slave, or "master" if run on master. In the case of Fuego, this is the board name (e.g. 'beagleboneblack')
WORKSPACE
The absolute path of the directory assigned to the test run as a workspace. For Fuego, this is always /fuego-rw/buildzone. Note that this comes from "custom workspace" setting in the job definition.

Fuego variables passed from Jenkins system configuration [edit section]

The following variables are defined at the system level, and are passed by Jenkins in the environment of every job that is executed:
FUEGO_RO
The location where Fuego read-only data (configuration, boards and toolchains) are located. Currently '/fuego-ro' in the docker container.
FUEGO_RW
The location where Fuego read-write data is located (directories for builds, logs (run data), and other workspace and scratchpad areas). Currently '/fuego-rw'.
FUEGO_CORE
The location where the Fuego script system and tests are located. Currently '/fuego-core'.

Fuego variables passed from Jenkins job definition [edit section]

These variables are defined in the job definition for a test:
Device
This is the target board to run the test on.
Reboot
Indicates to reboot the target device before running the test
Rebuild
Indicates that build instances of the test suite should be deleted, and the test suite rebuilt from the tarball
Target_PreCleanup
Indicates to clean up test materials left from a previous run of the test, before the test begins.
Target_PostCleanup
Indicates to clean up test materials after the test ends
TESTPLAN
This has the name of the testplan used for this test job. Note that this selected by the end user from the output of getTestplans.groovy. (example value: testplan_default)
TESTNAME
has the base name of the test (e.g. LTP vs Functional.LTP)
TESTSPEC
This has the name of the spec used for this test job
FUEGO_DEBUG
can have a 1 to indicate verbose shell script output

From Fuego to Fuego [edit section]

DISTRIB
indicates the distribution file for the board. This comes from
the board file. It's primary purpose is to select the logging features of the distribution on the target (to indicate whether there's a logger present on target). The value is often 'distribs/nologread.dist'
OF_BOARD_FILE
full path to the board file
OF_CLASSDIR
full path to the overlay class directory (usually /home/jenkins/overlays//base)
OF_CLASSDIR_ARGS
argument specifying the overlay class directory (usually '--classdir /home/jenkins/overlays//base')
OF_DEFAULT_SPECDIR
path to directory containing test specs (usually /home/jenkins/overlays//test_specs)
OF_DISTRIB_FILE
path to the distribution file for the target board (often /home/jenkins/overlays//distribs/nologger.dist
OF_OVFILES
FIXTHIS - document what OF_OVFILES is for
OF_OVFILES_ARGS
FIXTHIS - document what OF_OVFILES_ARGS is for
OF_ROOT
root directory for overlay generator (usually /home/jenkins/overlays/)
OF_SPECDIR_ARGS
argument to specify the test spec directory (usually '--specdir /home/jenkins/overlays//test_specs/')
OF_TESTPLAN_ARGS
OF_TESTPLAN
full path to the JSON test plan file for this test (often /home/jenkins/overlays//testplans/testplan_default.json)
OF_TESTPLAN_ARGS
argument specifying the path to the testplan (often '--testplan /home/jenkins/overlays//testplans/testplan_default.json')
TEST_HOME
home directory for the test materials for this test (example: /home/jenkins/tests/Functional.bc)
TESTDIR
base directory name of the test (example: Functional.bc)
TRIPLET
FIXTHIS - document TRIPLET

deprecated [edit section]

The following variables are no longer used in Fuego:
FUEGO_ENGINE_PATH
(deprecated in Fuego 1.1 - use '$FUEGO_CORE/engine' now)
FUEGO_PARSER_PATH
(deprecated in Fuego 1.1)

From Fuego to Jenkins [edit section]

  • FIXTHIS - add interface to perform Jenkins operations from the scripts
  • To abort a job, fuego does:
    • wget -qO- ${BUILD_URL}/stop
    • this is called by common.sh:abort_job()
  • To check if another test instance is running (do a lock check), fuego does:
    • wget -qO- "$(cat ${LOCKFILE})/api/xml?xpath=*/building/text%28%29"
      • LOCKFILE was previously set to hold the contents: ${BUILD_URL}, so this resolves to:
        • wget -qO- ${BUILD_URL}/api/xml?xpath=*/building/text()
    • this is called by functions.sh:concurrent_check()

Jenkins-cli interface [edit section]

You can run jenkins commands from the command line, using the pre-installed jenkins-cli interface. Note that Fuego does not use this interface (that I can tell).

jenkins-cli.jar is located in the Docker container at:

   /var/cache/jenkins/war/WEB-INF/jenkins-cli.jar

See https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Jenkins+CLI for information about using this plugin.

Here is a list of available commands for this plugin:

Scripts to process Fuego data [edit section]

Benchmark parsing [edit section]

In Fuego, Benchmark log parsing is done by a python system consisting of parser.py (from each test), dataload.py and utility functions in

fuego-core/engine/scripts/parser

See Benchmark parser notes, parser.py, reference.log and Parser module API

Postbuild action [edit section]

In Fuego, Jenkins jobs are configured to perfrom a postbuild action, to set the description of a test with links to the test log (and possibly plot and other files generated in post-processing).
