Test Groups for Patch Testing
When a patch is submitted to Lustre, automated testing is run against a build of Lustre with the submitted patch. Some of these test groups must pass testing, enforced test groups, and others may fail, optional test groups.
Enforced Test Groups
There are eight test groups that every patch submitted to Lustre must pass in order for a patch to be considered for landing. If there is a failure in any one of these test sessions, a patch will not be allowed to land to the Lustre branch. The Lustre test suites that compose each test group are listed in the following table and run in the order below every time they are executed.
Optional Test Groups
In addition to the enforced test groups, there are three optional test groups that do not influence if a patch can land. These optional test groups will become enforced test groups for patch landing in the near future and should be reviewed for failures.
The Lustre test suites that compose each optional test group are:
