Continuous Integration Testing Overview

The CIP CI infrastructure monitors the CIP Kernel branches and upstream stable release candidates for changes. Once a change is detected a build process is kicked off using GitLab CI/CD that provides binaries for a number of different Kernel configurations. These binaries are then tested on real hardware (where appropriate) using LAVA.

Tests

Boot Test (Healthcheck)

This checks that the provided Kernel will boot on the target device.

Spectre/Meltdown Checker

Linux Test Project (LTP)

LTP consists of a collection of tools for testing the Linux Kernel. More information can be found on the LTP website.

We currently support the following LTP tests:

  • ltp-cve-tests
  • ltp-dio-tests
  • ltp-fs-tests
  • ltp-ipc-tests
  • ltp-math-tests
  • ltp-sched-tests
  • ltp-syscalls-tests
  • ltp-timers-tests

The tests can take a long time to run, so currently they are only run during CIP Kernel release candidate testing.

Real-Time Tests

Some tests are designed specifically for Real-Time Linux enabled Kernels.

Cyclictest

Cyclicdeadline

Hackbench

Cyclictest+Hackbench

This test measures event latency in the Linux Kernel, with hackbench running in the background to stress the system. This provides a more realistic use case for cyclictest.

CIP Kernel Configurations

The Kernel configurations that CIP is using are stored in the cip-kernel-config repository.

The linux-cip-pipelines repository stores the GitLab CI configuration files that specify what Kernel configurations are built and tested, including the specific devices used and test cases run.

The below table maps which of these configurations is automatically built and tested by the CIP CI infrastructure.
