Yeah, that sounds interesting. Please provide me with this data, the link
responses 404 now., thanks.
Ideally, we want enough Arm CI tests as x86_64. And these tests are running
and maintained in the Lustre official test infra like review-ldiskfs-arm we
But if it is impossible now, we will consider setting up such CI on our own.
And if we run some kind of tests externally in our end, we can see the test
result (pass or not, running log link) displayed on the gerrit patch page
as the community running tests.
We want to make our test results public to the Lustre community, so that
developers can see the test results and adjust the patch if necessary. Thus
avoiding breaking previous Arm work.
That can be made via reporting results into Maloo DB, right? Am I
We will look into the links and evaluate on setting up our own or
self-hosted test infra and see if we can make it.
1. How many VMs resources for the test infra and test running;
2. Other requirements for the self-hosted test infra;
3. Work items to be done;
