Fuego configuration file

The Fuego configuration file contains configuration options and settings for the Fuego test system.

The following settings are supported:

Fuego test network settings [edit section]

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 [edit section]

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 FUEGO_HOST.

A host_name should only consist of letters, numbers and underscores. No other punctuation is allowed.

fuego_server [edit section]

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 directories [edit section]

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 is convenient.

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.

fuego_ro_dir [edit section]

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 [edit section]

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.

fuego_core_dir [edit section]

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

Configuration file syntax [edit section]

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.
