Deep Dives

Mobile (1st/2nd Monday)


  • Autophone s1s2 tracking bug 953342
  • Received 2 Nexus 5 devices.
  • Plan on separating Autophone s1s2 to be run from the Mac mini with traffic shaping enabled and Mochitest-Canvas from my Linux workstation. This will allow the two tests to run with different repositories. For the relevant devices, one will be devoted to s1s2 with the other devoted to Mochitest-Canvas.
  • May be able to return several older model phones for use by QA or developers. Still determining the final set.
  • Autophone s1s2
    • Autophone s1s2 is now testing Mozilla Central, Mozilla Inbound and Fx Team repositories. The phones are currently unable to keep up with the load. Iteration count is now at 8 but can't be lowered due to the presence of noise in the data. The phonedash UI needs revamping to deal with the deluge of phone - repository combinations.
    • I've been investigating changing Autophone to store fennec profiles on /data/local/tmp rather than the sdcard. Initial results are fairly promising. See bug 852264 - [s1s2] don't hardcode URLs for local test files for more details.
    • It has been suggested that Autophone use TCP over USB rather than Wifi. I will be investigating this option asap.
  • Autophone Mochitest-Canvas
    • Temporarily disabled while standing up the multiple repositories.
