Fuego Object Details

Here are details about the elements of Docker, Fuego and Jenkins that make up the objects in the system:

Here is a list of objects:

  • Docker image
  • Docker container
  • Fuego board
  • Fuego test
    • test source
    • base script
    • test specs
    • test criteria
    • test reference
    • results elements:
      • test results (aggregate data)
      • test charts
  • Fuego testplan
  • Fuego run
    • test results (individual)
    • test logs
    • test artifacts
  • Jenkins node - references a Fuego board
  • Jenkins job - references a Fuego board, test and spec
  • Jenkins build - references a Fuego run

Docker objects [edit section]

docker image [edit section]

A docker image is built when Fuego is installed. It contains a Debian distribution, and tools, libraries, and packages needed to perform test execution and support the Fuego system.

docker container [edit section]

This is runtime instance of the image, that has been instantiated and has persistent state. The container is the object that is actually executed by docker, and which Jenkins and Fuego run inside of, in order to perform tests.

Fuego objects [edit section]

Fuego board [edit section]

A board is defined by:
  • fuego board file: /fuego-ro/boards/<name>.board
    • defines: IPADDR, SSH_PORT, LOGIN, BOARD_TESTDIR, and many more
    • defines: TOOLCHAIN
    • defines: DISTRIB
    • defines: TRANSPORT
  • toolchain file: /fuego-ro/toolchains/<TOOLCHAIN>-tools.sh
    • defines: AR, ARCH, CC, and many other variables for the toolchain

Also called 'Device' by Jenkins, and 'NODE_NAME' by Jenkins

  • dynamic data:
    • fuego board dynamic variables: /fuego-rw/boards/<name>.vars

Fuego test [edit section]

A test is defined by:

Fuego test results [edit section]

Fuego stores results for tests in a number of files.

  • fuego individual results files (from one run):
    • in the "run" directory (/fuego-rw/logs/<test_name>/<run_id>
      • structured results ("run.json")
      • log files - see Log files

  • fuego aggregate results files:
    • in /fuego-rw/logs/<test_name>
      • results.json
      • flat_plot_data.txt
      • flot_chart_data.json

test elements table [edit section]

Here is the same information in table form

The "test directory" is /fuego-core/engine/tests/{test_name}

A test consists of the following files or items:
File or item  ^ format  ^ location  ^ description  ^ test type  ^
tarfile tar format test directory Has the source code for the test program all
patches patch format test directory Zero or more patches to customize the test program (applied during the unpack phase all
base script shell script test directory Is the shell script that implements the different test phases in Fuego all
spec.json JSON test directory Has groups of variables (and their values) that can be used with this test all
test plan(s) JSON inside a batch test, or in fuego-core/overlays/testplans-default.json Has the testplan(s) for this test all
test.yaml YAML test directory Has the "manifest" for packaging a test all
p/n logs text test directory Are logs with the results (positive or negative) parsed out, for determination of test pass/fail functional only
parser.py python test directory Python program to parse benchmark metrics out of the test's log, and provide a dictionary of results to Fuego for processing benchmarks only
reference.json Fuego-specific test directory Has the threshold values and comparison operators for benchmark metrics measured by the test benchmarks only
chart_config.json JSON test directory provides the names of metrics to be plotted for this benchmark benchmarks only
criteria.json JSON test directory, or user-specified Provides the criteria for evaluating the results of the test. For example, it can indicate that some testcase results may be ignored. For benchmarks, this indicates threshold values that are used to determine pass or fail for the test.

Fuego run [edit section]

A test run is defined by:

  • fuego log files:
    • /fuego-rw/logs/<test_name>/<board>.<spec>.<build_id>.<build_number>/
      • testlog.txt
      • syslog.before.txt
      • syslog.after.txt
      • consolelog.txt
      • testlog.p.txt, testlog.n.txt
      • (coming soon: fres.json)
  • benchmark results:
    • /fuego-rw/logs/<test_name>
      • plot.data
      • plot.png
      • <testname>.info.json
      • <testname>.<metric1>.json
        • with a file for each metric

Fuego testplan [edit section]

  • This file indicates a set of tests to run, and associated test variants (test specs) and other parameters (build variables from the spec)
    • /fuego-core/engine/overlays/testplans/testplan_<name>.json

See Test Specs and Plans for more information.

Jenkins objects [edit section]

Jenkins node [edit section]

  • This is the Jenkins object to represent a Fuego board
    • /var/lib/jenkins/nodes/<node_name>/config.xml

Jenkins job [edit section]

  • This is the Jenkins object to represent a unit of test execution
  • It refers to a node, spec, and test
    • The job name is composed of: <node_name>.<spec>.<test_type>.<test_name>
  • jenkins job file:
    • /var/lib/jenkins/jobs/<job_name>/config.xml - expected to be static
      • provides form for: 'Reboot', 'Rebuild', 'Target_Cleanup'
      • specifies shell command sequence to cause build
        • this references the script for the test, at:
          • $FUEGO_CORE/engine/tests/$TESTDIR/$TEST_NAME.sh
    • /var/lib/jenkins/jobs/<job_name>/nextBuildNumber - changes for each run

Jenkins build [edit section]

  • jenkins files:
    • /var/lib/jenkins/jobs/<job_name>/builds/<build_id>/
      • build.xml
      • changelog.xml
      • log - this is the console log
