What is ResultsDB
ResultsDB is a system for storage of test results. It was originally intended to hold the results of tests executed by the Taskotron framework, but has been intentionally designed to allow storage of results from many different test systems and types of test.
ResultsDB is only a system for storing test results, different 'frontend' apps can be created using ResultsDB as a data source. These frontends could be anything from a simple tool aggregating recent results for builds, or anything more complicated like a tool for gathering test-related metrics (historical fail/pass ratio of a specific test in a Fedora release, failure rate of critpath packages etc.).
Current development version
The project is split into these parts:
- ResultsDB core, which is the implementation of the datastore, and the API provider.
- ResultsDB Client Library providing the easy-to-use python implementation of the ResultsDB API, with documentation
- ResultsDB Frontend - a simple frontend intended for browsing the results via web interface.
Development of ResultDB is discussed on the qa-devel mailing list. There is also a resultsdb-users list for discussing issues related to 'using' ResultsDB - in the sense of submitting results to or consuming results from a ResultsDB instance.
Issues and code changes for ResultsDB are tracked in the Fedora QA Phabricator instance. Please see the Phabricator wiki page for instructions on how to submit issues and code changes. The individual projects have README files with detailed instructions on setting up development environments in order to be able to run tests and so on.
