MinutesCI Status

   -

   Intel CI system updates
   -

      Migration work completed on June 1, 2020
      -

      @Lincoln to reach out and confirm with Intel the status and to
      participate in the meeting.
      -

   Travis CI
   -

      Seems to be working better with their recent changes, still 1 or 2
      infra failures, but better overall.
      -

   Community CI Lab
   -

      Broadcom hardware online now
      -

         Will be configured to email patchworks today.
         -

      SPDK build failures
      -

         SPDK team is going to discuss which of their branches should be
         used for the DPDK integration testing, which may help with
keeping in sync
         with the DPDK development / changes.
         -

         Point release submitted today that should fix the current failures
         being seen - 2 of the 5 systems are showing as pass now, and need to
         confirm the status of the other 3 systems.
         -

   Other build services
   -

      Comparison metrics for additional services are captured in May 19
      minutes.
      -

      Cirrus CI
      -

         Expect update for Redhat June 16 or June 30 on interns, etc.
         -

      SUSE Open Build Service
      -

         Not built for the CI purpose, rather to build packages for systems
         (RPM or deb) and make those packages available for use.
         -

         To use the system for CI type work, there would be effort needed
         to create job definitions (combination of different variables
/ build types)
         -

         OS / Arch coverage - fairly significant number of both OS and
         architectures, compared existing CI coverage
         -

         Testing Type: Does support running unit tests, but root access is
         not permitted, and could cause an issue hugepages (this would
need to be
         added by the OBS maintainers).
         -

         Output Reporting - Should be possible to match capabilities of
         existing Travis CI system
         -

         Support - Community support via IRC and email lists
         -

         The system could be made “easier” with the inclusion of package
         specs in the DPDK main repo. This should be discussed with
the tech-board,
         Thomas will add this to the next agenda.
         -

         If there is an agreement to include the spec files by the tech
         board, Juraj will help to get the OBS integrated with the CI processes.

Test Development

   -

   Development environment has been set up and developers are becoming
   familiar with the code.  Working through the first test case (MTU test
   case), and should have a patch submitted by the end of the week.
   -

   Question on the adding additional abstraction within test cases. Let’s
   put together a proposal / example to share with the DTS mailer, to get
   early feedback.
   -

   Demonstrate / report to the board mid-July status, percent complete on
   the project (number of test cases, etc.)

Any Other Business

   -

   Next meeting: June 16, 2020
