Continuous Integration: Jenkins, libvirt and Real Hardware - Anna-Maria Gleixner & Manuel Traut, Linutronix GmbH

Jenkins is a well established CI-System. It has excellent support for libvirt, but controlling real hardware in Jenkins can be tedious task and is not standardised.

The Jenkins based CI-RT system provides smoke tests for Real-Time Linux developers, which include compile, boot and latency regression tests, This requires control of real hardware. Instead of adding custom hardware controls to Jenkings the RTL team decided to standardise on libvirt and add a libvirt extension, which interfaces with R4D (Remote control For Device-under-test). R4D allows simple integration of remote power controls and serial device servers for console access. Libvirt/R4D makes controlling real hardware from Jenkins as simple as controlling a VM.

The talk explains the inner workings of libvirt/R4D and the integration in Jenkins with real world examples from the RTL (CI-RT) testsystem.
