[workload]
; A boolean value of whether to save the test results. The default value is TRUE.
save_results = TRUE

; A string that is an XML test suite for the Phoronix Test Suite. If running a
; custom collection of tests/suites, first run phoronix-test-suite build-suite.
suite =

; The string to save the test results as.
save_name =

; The test description string.
description =

; The test result identifier string, unless using contexts.
result_identifier =


[installation]
; Check to see that all tests/suites are installed prior to execution. The default value is TRUE.
install_check = TRUE

; Force all tests/suites to be re-installed each time prior to execution.
force_install = FALSE

; The option to specify a non-standard PTS External Dependencies download cache
; directory.

[general]
; A boolean value whether to automatically upload the test result to
; OpenBenchmarking.org
upload_to_openbenchmarking = FALSE


[environmental_variables]
; The environmental_variables section allows key = value pairs of environmental
; variables to be set by default. The default value is EXAMPLE.
EXAMPLE_VAR = EXAMPLE


[set_context]

; The pre_install or pre_run fields must be used when using the MATISK context
; testing functionality. The set_context fields must specify an executable file
; for setting the context of the system. Passed as the first argument to the
; respective file is the context string defined by the contexts section of this
; file. If any of the set_context scripts emit an exit code of 8, the testing
; process will abort immediately. If any of the set_context scripts emit an exit
; code of 9, the testing process will skip executing the suite on the current
; context.

; An external file to be used for setting the system context prior to test
; installation.
pre_install =

; An external file to be used for setting the system context prior to test
; execution.
pre_run =

; An external file to be used for setting the system context after the test
; installation.
post_install =

; An external file to be used for setting the system context after all tests have
; been executed.
post_run =

; An array of context values.
context[] =
context[] =

; An external file for loading a list of contexts, if not loading the list of
; contexts via the context array in this file.
context_file =

; The delimiter for the context_file contexts list. Special keyword: EOL will use
; a line break as the delimiter and TAB will use a tab as a delimiter. The default value is EOL.

; A boolean value of whether to log the output of the set-context scripts to
; ~/.phoronix-test-suite/modules-data/matisk/
