Hi Neil,

After the completion of job, we find that sometimes the job don't stop automatically and status of the device is still running. And we must cancel the job manually.

Best Regards.
Bo Wang

Yes, I understand now. But KVM is not a suitable solution in our test environment. So I plan to add one command in lava dispatcher to call the local python script (Appium/Robotium) to communicate with the DUT. And if I do so, the problem should be the parse of the test results.

Now we use Jenkins to auto-build the source image, and is it possible to receive the email send by Jenkins to start one test Job in LAVA? Otherwise, I can write a script to retrieve the content of the email, and then use "lava sumit-job" to start one test job.

Yes, using KVM and multinode means that you do not use the python
environment on the dispatcher. The python script then runs in a python
environment which you define, inside the KVM. You need to make sure
either that this image has any python dependencies pre-installed or
that the necessary python support is installed before the script runs.

Not unless you have a way of deploying the python interpreter as part
of your test or part of the image.

Your tests in the KVM need to use ADB to run tasks on the DUT.

Just for clarity and for others reading the list, this is a run.sh as
generated by LAVA. Do not use LAVA_SIGNAL in test scripts.
