Expected result

Last good: 160.2 (or more recent)

okurz: fix is rolled out. Can you confirm? Also, we have not seen an alert internally so I wonder how we could better see and prevent the issues that you encountered
mdoucha: I can confirm LTP tests are working now. The tests failed when boot_ltp tried to schedule additional test modules at runtime so it wasn't a classic incomplete job.
mdoucha: You should probably run a round of LTP tests on known good QCOW image (without kernel update) as a pre-deployment sanity check.
okurz: Well, now we know that we can run LTP tests for the PR and maybe even automatically every time. But I wonder how we could also detect it after deployment. The tests you mentioned failed, not incompleted, right?
mdoucha: You could scan for unusual numbers of failed jobs, especially ones that fail very rarely
okurz: yeah, that's what I thought, something like a sudden change in statistics. Good idea
mdoucha: [you could] also checked for failures due to unexpected system error vs. standard assertion failure in test.

  • Status changed from Feedback to Resolved

In the meantime we have also deployed which sets relative directories as default ( being just one example) and no problems have been reported so I see this task here as resolved as well.
