Each night we run an extensive series of tests on a set of (platform,configuration) pairs. These results can be found on the summary page. These older scripts are slowly being replaced/augmented by a new testing script that does essentially the same thing in a more maintainable fashion. That link is likely to break in short order, so see Pavan if you need an updated one.

Other testing:

  • Special Tests - This shows the results of special tests, such as configuring, building, and testing with memory tracing (--enable-g=mem), logging, or shared libraries, on one system (usually Linux). See Running The Special Tests for information on running or modifying these tests. It is a good idea to add tests to this file in response to user bug reports to ensure that fixed bugs stay fixed.
  • Tests of Configure Options - This shows the results of configuring, building, and installing with a variety of configure options, on one system (usually Linux). See Running Tests Of Configure Options for information on running or modifying these tests. It is a good idea to add tests to this file in response to user bug reports to ensure that fixed bugs stay fixed.

We are currently missing the following test result pages from the old website:

  • Results from the MPICH2 test suite - This shows more diverse tests but run against only the MPICH2 test suite. As an added benefit, these results package up all relevant generated files, include config.log, from each configured subdirectory.
