About BSP

A Board Support Package (BSP) is the collection of software and data that allows an operating system to run in a specific hardware. It contains the drivers, routines and information that defines how to support a particular hardware device, set of devices, or hardware platform.

Objectives

Verify different supported images generated by Yocto Project build system on main AB, manual and automated test are applied in both physical HW and emulated with qemu.

Test Strategy

As mentioned below there are 2 types of test Automated an Manual tests, below a description of how those test are applied.


Manual

Test cases executed fully manually on real HW and on a qemu instance, these tests are focused on user scenarios using the image and also ensuring that graphical interface and multimedia are properly working on the image.


Automated Tests

Test cases execute automatically used testimage suite as well as 2 special test called pTest and Compliance, these tests are written in Python using oeqa framework and check different content and packages behavior of the booted image by a series of commands executed by a ssh communication.


Test Process

1. Prepare the image and device under test

   1.1 Download Artifacts
      there are 2 links available from Public AutoBuilder to download images 
         http://autobuilder.yoctoproject.org/pub/releases/
         https://autobuilder.yocto.io/pub/releases/
    
      Artifacts to be downloaded are: 
   
      Real HW
      under folder machines/<MACHINE_UNDER_TEST>
      - <IMAGE_TO_BE_TESTED>.hddimg
      - <IMAGE_TO_BE_TESTED>.wic
      - <IMAGE_TO_BE_TESTED>.wic.bmap
      - <IMAGE_TO_BE_TESTED>.manifest
      - <IMAGE_TO_BE_TESTED>.testdata.json
      example of <IMAGE_TO_BE_TESTED> name core-image-sato-sdk-genericx86.*
      
      QEMU
      under folder machines/qemu/<MACHINE_UNDER_TEST>
      - <BZIMAGE>.bin
      - <IMAGE_TO_BE_TESTED>.ext4
      - <IMAGE_TO_BE_TESTED>.qemuboot.conf
      - <IMAGE_TO_BE_TESTED>.manifest
      - <IMAGE_TO_BE_TESTED>.testdata.json
      example of <IMAGE_TO_BE_TESTED> name core-image-sato-sdk-qemux86.*
   
   1.2 For real hardware devices:
      - Write the image to a bootable media (USB key, SD Card, etc.) using the dd command:
          $ sudo dd if=tmp/deploy/images/intel-corei7-64/core-image-base-intel-corei7-64.wic of=TARGET_DEVICE
      - Attach the bootable device to the DUT
      - Turn the DUT on, and use its boot options to select the correct media for booting
      - Ensure the device has a network connection and a valid IP address
2. For Manual Test Cases:
  
   2.1 - Go to the proper Test Run assigned on the execution and start executing test cases  
3. For automated Test Cases:
   
   3.1 Clone poky repo $git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/poky
   3.2 $cd poky 
   3.3 Checkout to the commit specified on the release information $git checkout <commit-id>
   3.4 If testing meta-intel, clone the layer repo inside poky $git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/meta-intel
       3.4.1 $cd meta-intel
       3.4.2 Checkout to the meta-intel commit specified on the release information $git checkout <commit-id>
       3.4.3 Return to the poky root path $cd ..
   3.5 $source oe-init-build-env
   3.6 If testing meta-intel, add the layer to conf/bblayers.conf. It may be done with:
       $bitbake-layers add-layer "../meta-intel"
   3.7 For real HW edit local.conf. PATH: ~/poky/build/conf, at the end of the file adding: 
       Install / Boot the image on the DUT and check the IP
       INHERIT += "testimage"
       TEST_TARGET = "simpleremote"
       TEST_SERVER_IP = "HOST ip" --> IP of the machine being used to launch tests
       TEST_TARGET_IP = "DUT ip"  --> IP of the device under test
       if image is LSB 
       DISTRO ?= "poky-lsb"
   3.8 For QEMU edit local.conf. PATH: ~/poky/build/conf, at the end of the file adding:
       INHERIT += "testimage"
       if image is LSB 
       DISTRO ?= "poky-lsb"
   For releases before 2.3 also add
   TEST_SUITES = " auto" 
   
   Remember to add the machine to local.conf, for example:
   If genericx86 is needed, MACHINE ?= "genericx86"
   If qemux86 is needed, MACHINE ?= "qemux86"
   If intel-corei7-64 is needed, MACHINE = "intel-corei7-64"
4. Prepare the environment to execute test suite 
   
   4.1 $bitbake rpm busybox run-postinsts
   4.2 $bitbake package-index
   4.3 Ensure that a folder is created, otherwise create it, under
       tmp/deploy/images/<MACHINE>, where <MACHINE> corresponds to the variable defined on
       local.conf on previous steps
   4.4 Paste artifacts downloaded on previously created folder 
5. Execute the test suite
   
   5.1 $bitbake <IMAGE_TESTED> -c testimage
      example bitbake core-image-sato-sdk -c testimage -v
6. Verify that all test cases PASSED if not raise bugs properly 
7. Update results to corresponding Testopia Test Run 
   There is a script available to upload results form the log automatically on QA-Tools and follow this example Update TR by ID

Bug Reporting

For correctly report the bugs follow the already defined steps here

Special Tests

There are 2 special test that also applied as BSP Components those are:

pTest

For detailed information about behavior and characteristics check Ptest

Test Process

1. Download pTest image from autobuilder( you can find core-image-sato-sdk image in pTest directory)
   * Test are applied on NUC with genericx86-64 
2. Install the image on DUT (using legacy boot)
   Configure the network so it be able to work externally:
   - Export the proxy using "export http_proxy=<add your proxy link>" command eg
     $ export http_proxy=http://<my_proxy>:<port>
   - And check if you have internet connection, typing on terminal:
     $ wget www.google.com
3. In command line type
   $ ptest-runner > ptest.log
     and wait for it to finish ( about 5 hours)
     Note: The "script" is already placed on the distro, you just have to type ptest...TAB and the terminal should autocomplete the command.
     and > ptest.log, in order to save the test results in that file.

Reporting Process

1. Generate the report of pTests as follows:

    1.1 Get the log from the DUT.
    1.2 Go to the Ptest/archive page and check the previous execution to this release.
    1.3 Go the the report of the execution and download the log.
    1.4 Use the ptest-parser script to generate the report, this script generates a file called <release>wiki.page.
    1.5 Create a wiki with the name Ptest_<commit-tested>
    1.6 Copy the content of the content of <release>wiki.page and paste it on new wiki created.
    1.7 Upload the log of current execution and update the recent created wiki with the link to the log.
    1.8 Check the packages that had regression on pass rate Down rate.png and if there is a bug reported update the bug with comments that still present 
        on current commit, if there is no bug created raise a new one.
    1.9 Update the Ptest/archive wiki with the info of this new execution.

Compliance

In this section 3 Test suites are executed on a NUC HW with core-image-sato-sdk-generixc86-64 image booted.

  • LSB tests
  • POSIX tests
  • LTP tests

Test Process

1. Download lsb image from autobuilder( same image as in LSB automated testing for genericx86-64-lsb bsp)
   * we test compliance on NUC with genericx86-64-lsb, core-image-lsb-sdk
2. Install the image on DUT
3. Configure the network so it be able to work externally:
   * edit /etc/resolv.conf and add the gateway ip_address
   * add the ip and netmask using "ifconfig" command
   * add the route using "route add default gw <ip_address>" 
   * export the proxy using "export http_proxy=<add your proxy link>" command
     : there is a bug and if you make these steps in another order than above, it may be possible not work
 4. Copy "compliance_test.py" script on DUT
    script can be found here
 5. Make sure that your network connection is working
 6. Run the script like this:
   * make the script executable: "chmod a+x compliance_local.py"
   * run in command line the following command "./compliance_test.py <milestone> <date>"
   * wait until "Configuration done. LSB script must be started from machine." in command line( about 8-12 hours)
 7. Run "LSB_test.sh" via ssh or manually and wait for it to finish( about a day)
 8. Get the logs from DUT:
   - result-<milestone>-data.fulllog
   - result-<milestone>-data.log
   - result-<milestone>-data.fail
   - posix.log (can be found in: /opt/ltp/testcases/open_posix_testsuite)
     -  the three others are found in /opt/ltp directory, in output, temp, result folders . The logs need to be sent to yi.zhao@windriver.com specifying the v 
        version and the type of image
   - in /var/opt/lsb/test/manager/results/x86.../x86....tar.gz (you can find it with auto-complete(tab) easily)
     -- it has like 18 Mb
     -- upload this file on drive and send the link to hongxu.jia@windriver.com and mark.hatle@windriver.com
     -- also I'll fwd an email to see how it looks
 9. Put the tests from Testopia - Runtime test run on passed
