End to End Demo of Enabling Something for LAVA

Registered by Andy Doan on 2012-01-06

LAVA is amazing, but understanding how things work end-to-end is still a bit confusing and not really documented. This session will cover a scenario I recently went through enabling some benchmarks for LAVA in the Android build. Topics included will be:

* the LAVA pieces - a bit of context about the components
  and code repos for them and how they fit

 * getting started - cover setting up "virtualenv" so that you can
   easily run lava-android-test from your dev environment

 * how to add a test - a demonstration of two benchmark tests I
   created. A simple one using the default parser, and a more complex
   one where I had to extend the parser.

 * getting the results into the dashboard - basically setting up and
   using the lava-dashboard-tool from your local dev system

 * running android tests in the validation lab - covering how to work
   with android-build.l.o to run specific tests after a build.

 * playing with the data - brief coverage of how you can pull bundles
   from the validation server and analyze the data. For example, I've
   written a script that can look at test_results from multiple runs,
   compute an average and standard deviation for each result, and
   generate some nice charts.
