Autotest Server Troubleshooting

Here we have some common problems in the server/scheduler/web UI and solutions for thems. Also, we have info on log files you can look after.

Checking scheduler logs

You can find them in the autotest logs directory. As autotest or root:

tail -f /usr/local/autotest/logs/scheduler-[timestamp].log

Status is queing

The scheduler is not running. You are strongly advised to use the init scripts mentioned in the AutotestServerInstall or AutotestServerInstallRedHat documentation. If you are using them, restarting the scheduler should be simple:

service autotestd start

Status is pending

Usually it is a result of scheduler crash due to lack of disk space on Autotest server, so you might want to check that.
