Top Level

Highest priority, multi-team dependent goals

Goal Measurement Status Owner Bug Area
Run endurance tests without Marionette issues Run a set of endurance tests without gaia actions (or with simplified gaia actions to test only marionette) for 3 days w/o issues [DONE] Mdas bug 908261 has been marked a dupe, what will help here is bug 931044 which we could hook up to run for 3 days Marionette
Deploy new B2G desktop tests, reftest running OOP, and gaia integration to TBPL All these suites running on B2G Inbound [DONE] Jgriffin bug 916356 B2G
Support B2G Perf Team with automated power testing and Gaia Productivity team with github autoland The power testing goal was deferred due to lack of a suitable device, and the Gaia team didn't end up needing our help with the first iteration of github autoland. [DEFER] Wlach bug 917375, Github autoland bot B2G
Deploy automated B2G Eideticker system to run nightly Successful completion on deadline [DONE] Wlach bug 916989 B2G
Create and Deploy one dashboard for docs, usage statistics, and tools for all our performance tools This goal's priority was downgraded to allow Joel to spend time on higher-priority perf items, including desktop power testing, xperf, and webpagetest. [MISSED] Jmaher bug 919619 Performance
Implement and deploy a fully functional alerting system for performance regressions and data ingestion monitoring. Jeads time was better spent on Treeherder; we will target this goal for Q12014. [MISSED] Jeads bug 921218 Datazilla
Ensure sheriffs can perform side by side usability testing in TBPL Complete starring, orange factor integration, plugin detail pane, (possibly) regex to tag transformation by end of quarter.

Ensure steeplechase webRTC automation as hands off as possible Deployed mochitests, ability to change machine configuration to system by end of quarter. C++ tests were not created (not our responsibility) so did not get integrated. [DONE] Ted bug 894559 WebRTC

Deploy Mozmill 2.0, Metro infrastructure and tests, and aid SoftVision to take over day to day operations for QA automation with our oversight Deployed projects, tried to get the SV team to take over the reigns, and we had marginal success. Had to bail them out a few times. [DONE] Whimboo bug 922200 QA Automation
Operationalize sheriffing role and complete documentation so that we can pull in community sheriffs Have documentation completed, identify one part time community sheriff. [DONE] Edmorley bug 928960 Sheriffing
