The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 10874
Run tests in parallel
Last modified: 2014-11-02 18:20:41 UTC
We'd like to run the tests in "make test" in parallel, so that we can actually utilize all cores in multi-core machines.
testr allows us to run tests in parallel, and we've already got most of the infrastructure to do that in place (selftest --list, selftest --load-list, .testr.conf).
The main thing that is preventing us from running testr are the fact that tests currently have to be run in a specific order, which we can't do with multiple workers.
