Description Qian Cai 2010-05-19 09:57:29 UTC
Description of problem:
Some tests need NUMA hardware, so it would be helpful to have something
like NUMA=<numaNode> or NUMA={1,0}. As you know, the NUMA Node can be
checked using.

$ numactl --hardware

This is a high priority for Platform QE. Bill, can we get this on the Beaker roadmap?

Comment 2 Bill Peck 2010-05-19 12:44:25 UTC
Everything is high priority.  I'm concentrating on regressions and stability at this time.

I'll have a crack at this.

From talking to rmancy, my plan of attack will be:

* Finish off all the necessary bits in the TurboGears model (we already have a numa table, but it's unused at present)
* Add some ui to view/edit the number of NUMA nodes for a system
* Add support for filtering by number of NUMA nodes in the recipe XML
* Maybe also update pushInventory.py to populate NUMA info?

As I understand it, key-values are a legacy feature so we won't be adding NUMA info as a key-value.

This task looks pretty substantial, but not too hard, so I might be able to get it done for 0.5.56. And if I'm mistaken about anything, bpeck will be able to set me straight next week once he's back from his holiday :-)

I also have a change to pushInventory.py in CVS, which I will commit once I can get CVS to behave.
