Testing 100's of OS Images with Jenkins: A Journey from Pull Request to Production Release - Vipul Gupta , balena

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

BalenaOS is an open-source, Yocto-based Linux operating system supported on over 90 IoT boards. 90 different balenaOS images are being supported, developed, tested, and released by our CI/CD system. These 90 images have versions. Hundreds of versions each. Each pull request builds all 90 balenaOS images for all supported boards to test changes. About 30 of these draft images are tested on actual hardware in a board farm made up of testing kits called Autokit. When the tests pass, the balenaOS image is considered ready and released to production. Every part of this intricate and complex process has been built, scaled, and ultimately automated on Jenkins. In this talk, we talk about Jenkins's use case in our CI/CD toolchain to build an OS, test it, and eventually release it to production. We go over how Jenkins interfaces with our code management tool, GitHub to pick up the right jobs. We explain how we test using our own hardware workers with tests running on Jenkins and how we have scaled the system to test 30-40 releases of balenaOS in a day.
