Building a Bards Farm: Continuous Integration and Remote Control - Antoine Tenart & Quentin Schulz, Free Electrons

At Free Electrons, many engineers are maintainers for ARM platforms and we cooperate with several ARM processors vendors. Thus, we have a strong interest in kernel continuous integration to detect regressions early. With this in mind, we decided to build a boards farm to contribute to KernelCI project which is a build and test automation tool for upstream

Linux kernel trees. Its infrastructure is designed so that anyone willing to contribute can add a farm, with its own boards, to build and test Linux kernels on a large variety of platforms and boards.

This talk will describe the Kernel CI goals and infrastructure and how it communicates with our farm using LAVA. We will then give a feedback on how we designed our boards farm and present its second use case: remote control of boards.
