Fuego configuration file
The Fuego configuration file contains configuration options and settings
for the Fuego test system.
The following settings are supported:
These settings are used when a host participates in a Fuego test
network. This refers to distributed operations between Fuego labs,
and not to the test network within a single Fuego lab.
host_name is used to specify a name for this instance of Fuego, within
the worldwide Fuego test network (or within a company Fuego network).
The default value for host_name is
'fuegohost'. If this site participates in distributed testing, the
host_name should be set to something unique, which describes the host.
For example, my lab uses a Fuego host_name of "timdesk".
During test execution, this value appears in the environment variable
A host_name should only consist of letters, numbers and underscores.
No other punctuation is allowed.
The fuego_server setting indicates the domain name or IP address where a Fuego
test server is running. This is a site where fuego tests can be uploaded
and downloaded, and where run requests can be posted and retrieved, and
run data can be uploaded for sharing.
By default, the value for this is 'fuegotest.org', which is the main
fuego web site. If an organization is running its own Fuego server, it
should specify the IP address for their own server.
Fuego data and programs are located in three directories, used for
read-only data, read-write data, and a core system directory. These variables
are normally located within the Fuego repository, and at hardcoded locations
within the docker container. However, they are specified in the fuego
configuration file so that the directories may be placed elsewhere if this
Each of these directories is normally specified as a file path relative to
the directory where the fuego.conf file resides. However, absolute paths
are allowed. If absolute paths are used, then the volume mounts for the
docker container should be such at the same absolute paths can used both
inside and outside the docker container to access these directories.
For example, you could re-configure Fuego to use directories under /opt/fuego
both inside the container and on the host.
This indicates the location of the Fuego read-only data directory.
The default value is "..", since the fuego.conf file usually resides
in the directory "fuego-ro/conf".
Some important directories that reside in the fuego-ro directory are the
conf, boards and toolchains directory.
fuego_rw_dir indicates the location of the Fuego read-write data directory.
The default value for fuego_rw_dir is ../../fuego-rw
Some important directories that reside in the fuego-rw directory are the
buildzone and logs directories.
The fuego_core_dir indicates the location of the Fuego core directory,
which has the main scripts, programs, data and source code that make up
the Fuego test system.
The default value for fuego_core_dir is ../../fuego-core
The configuration file uses a very simple name=value syntax.
Most settings consist of a single line. Lines starting with '#' are ignored.
Empty lines are ignored, and lines starting with a '#' are interpreted
as comments and are ignored.
If a setting value requires multiple lines, it is enclosed in
triple-double quotes, like a python multiline string.
