Firefox OS/Performance/Graphics Performance Automation
Currently, we have no graphics automation in place. We are in the process of spinning them up, but there is a lot of work to be done. The objective of this project is to measure various aspects of the Graphics pipeline and set up automation to report the data to Datazilla.
There are various stages and indicators to inform us that the Graphics pipeline is working well. The general steps will be to:
- Identify and instrument Gecko to detail how long a stage in the Graphics Pipeline takes. Notable stages would be layout flushes, painting, building display lists, and checkerboarding.
- Extract the measurement and output it to JSON or some datazilla compatible format
- Create a test case to use the extracted data
- Report the data into datazilla on a regular basis
