Autotest server interaction with clients¶
Tests can be run on standalone machines, or in a server-client mode.
The server interaction is simple:
- Copy the control file across
- Execute the control file repeatedly until it completes
- Client notifies server of any reboot for monitoring
- Upon completion of control script, server pulls results back (not client push)
All interaction with the server harness will be via the harness object. This object provides for a per harness interface. A null interface will be provided for standalone use.
