[edit] Description

sp-endurance-postproc provides post-processing tools for producing report(s) from the data collected by sp-endurance.

These include:

  • a script for producing an overview HTML report of the collected endurance data
  • a script for splitting the data into several reports (in case of reboots during automated testing)
  • a script for for parsing errors and other significant events from syslogs

[edit] Packages

source: sp-endurance

binary: sp-endurance-postproc

[edit] Usage Examples

Once you've transferred the endurance data saved by sp-endurance to a PC, you can post-process it with the following:

# fakeroot apt-get install sp-endurance-postproc
# parse-endurance-measurements test-case-name/[0-9]*

This will produce you a nice (single file) HTML report which you can send in E-mail, attach to Bugzilla etc.

The report lists first the information about the system's intial state (first measurement data), then the system's memory usage change overview, more detailed memory usage of each process whose memory usage changed and last details about all resource usage changes and (recognized) syslogged errors between each of the measurements. Finally there's a summary of the differences between the second and the last measurement.

If you want to get a similar report for a subset of these measurements (e.g. because there was a reboot between them or to see the leaks better you want to skip some of them), the script offers several options for that too.

[edit] Other platforms

If you want to do the post-processing on platforms like Windows which may have Python, but not Bash, you can call this directly:

# test-case-name/[0-9]* > report.html

[edit] Syslog parsing

As a part of endurance data processing the saved syslogs are parsed for errors and other significant events, but you can do that also directly with:

# syslog.gz

The syslog file can be compressed and you can get the lists either in ASCII (default) or in HTML.
