Feedback form is now closed.
The Linaro Automated Validation Architecture, or LAVA for short, allows users to test kernels, modules, root filesystems and applications in an automated way, allowing systems to look for regressions, improvements, all under the test writers control. The Linux Kernel Functional Test (LKFT) deployment was built on our experience of large automated deployments, and even more lessons were learned as a consequence. This presentation focusses on that deployment and it’s wider implications for others wishing to deploy LAVA.

The requirements for rapid turn around of results means that many devices of a particular type need to be available, and this presents challenges in reliability, control and space utilisation.
