Can't make the date?
If you come to this page before or after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test, file any bugs you find at Bugzilla, and add your results to the results section. If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the current schedule and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.

What to test?

Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on HekaFS (Features/HekaFS).

  • An updated Fedora 16 beta

How to test?

Update your machine

If you're running Fedora 16, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager.

Get latest glusterfs and hekafs packages

The latest versions are:


Use the following command to install/update all of them:

See the HekaFS simple howto for set-up of a simple four node HekaFS cluster.


Follow each of these test cases:

  1. QA:Testcase_HekaFS - simple
Report SELinux denials against HekaFS
If you encounter some SELinux (AVC) denials during testing, please report them against the hekafs package, not selinux package. Thanks.

Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component hekafs. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
