Managing autotest labels

From FedoraProject

Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists the autotest system labels used by AutoQA. Labels are important when adding new clients to autotest or when writing new tests for AutoQA. You can read more at How to add autotest clients and Writing AutoQA Tests.


Platform labels

A system can have only one of the following labels. This is a restriction enforced by autotest.

host has i386 architecture
host has x86_64 architecture

Distribution labels

Much like platform labels, a system should have only one of the following labels.

Fedora NN is installed on the host (e.g.fc21, fc22, fc23 ...).

Capability labels

A system can use one or more of the following labels. However, note that some labels may be contradictory.

the host is capable of using virtualization technologies (we're mainly interested in KVM)
the host is running inside virtualized environment, it is not a bare metal machine

Other labels

noarch tests will be executed only on clients with this label. Adding this label to all your clients distributes the workload most equally (recommended).
