  • How to prevent phoronix-test-suite from saving test results?

    Hello,

    I'm a newbie on phoronix-test-suite, trying to integrate some benchmarks in an existing test environment.
    To do so I have to get rid of, as much as possible, interactions with the user during a test execution.

    I found how to proceed with PRESET_OPTIONS.
    I'm now trying to get rid of the message "'Would you like to save these test results".
    I found the related piece of code and commented out to move forward, but I guess there is a much cleaner way to do this.
    I also took a look at the default xml config file.

    So, my question is: is there a simple way to automatically avoid getting the "'Would you like to save these test results" questions when running a test?

    Thanks

    Hi & welcome. It's very easy, just use batch-setup/batch-run, it's all outlined further in the documentation.

    e.g.

    [[email protected] phoronix-test-suite]$ ./phoronix-test-suite batch-setup

    These are the default configuration options for when running the Phoronix Test Suite in a batch mode (i.e. running phoronix-test-suite batch-benchmark universe). Running in a batch mode is designed to be as autonomous as possible, except for where you'd like any end-user interaction.

    Save test results when in batch mode (Y/n): n
    Run all test options (Y/n): y

    Batch settings saved.


    [[email protected] phoronix-test-suite]$ ./phoronix-test-suite batch-run the tests you want to run or whatever

      Thanks a lot for this response Michael.

      I tested the batch mode, it is indeed what I expect.
      But still, to setup the batch mode I need to interact with the device under test.

      The question is now: can I automate the batch mode setup? I could do it with tools such as expect, but it would be easier to do it inside phoronix-test-suite

        Thanks a lot for this answer, it does help me.

        The next question is the: can I automate the batch-setup, or should I use an external such as expect?
        My tests are run on an embedded software, and I start from a clean file system at each test session.

          Denis,

          The batch configuration is stored in the user-config.xml file (or /etc/phoronix-test-suite.xml if running as root). i.e.

          <BatchMode>
          <SaveResults>FALSE</SaveResults>
          <OpenBrowser>FALSE</OpenBrowser>
          <UploadResults>FALSE</UploadResults>
          <PromptForTestIdentifier>FALSE</PromptForTestIdentifier>
          <PromptForTestDescription>FALSE</PromptForTestDescription>
          <PromptSaveName>FALSE</PromptSaveName>
          <RunAllTestCombinations>TRUE</RunAllTestCombinations>
          <Configured>TRUE</Configured>
          </BatchMode>

          You can simply ship the same user-config.xml file on all systems, does that work for you?

            You made my day Michael. That is fully functional, and I indeed will copy my settings file before testing. I can now deploy and extensively use phoronix-test-suite in my test environment.

            I will look at all the other tips and hints, thanks for the support and thanks for the tool
