autoboot is a job scheduler/watchdog to automatically compile/boot and run test suites with experimental Linux kernels. autoboot runs from a central server and a pool of clients.
The central server builds various kernels, then automatically boots a subset of them on the clients and runs test suites (like autotest). The server is very careful to watch the clients for hangs and power switch them as needed, and will also automatically fetch serial logs from a console server.
All the resulting information is stored in a unique output directory for each for easy post processing. autoboot is a collection of bash shell scripts. It will need some adaption for local infrastructure.
What's New in This Release:
· Lots of minor changes and support for the new unified arch/x86 architecture of the Linux kernel.
