Is there any simple way to try out LAVA Dashboard?

Asked by Terry Guo on 2012-02-17

Hi there,

I am new to the whole LAVA test system. But it seems the Dashboard module can work independently to display test results that already stored in a pgsql database. Am I correct? If I am right, then is there any simple way to try this feature out? I read some documents but didn't find a more specific document. Please help me.

1. I set up the LAVA server and LAVA Dashboard using ppa:linaro-validation/ppa. Now the server end works fine.

2. I have a data base which stores the results of my daily test, the records look like:

    id date performance
   test1 2012/2/1 889.000
   test1 2012/2/2 800.000
   test1 2012/2/3 870.000
  .................................................

3. I just want to show those data in a trend graph with date as x axis. I think I only need three modules lava server, lava dashboard, lava dashboard tool.

4. Can you please give me some guides on how to do this? A brief introduction to write such jason file or some reference example are all welcomed.

Thanks very much in advance.

Best regards,
Terry

Lava dashboard depends on lava server. Other than that you are correct

It is deprecated. It only confuses people, we should get rid of it. See http://launchpad.net/lava-project/ to find out how to install lava

You can write an extension that will show this data. Alternatively you can use the data views and reports feature of the dashboard to render such a page

Please look at lp:~linaro-validation/lava-dashboard/data-views-and-reports for examples. You will need to configure your lava installation to find the two directories in that branch

Hi,

Thanks for help. If I plan to try the LAVA extension, does it mean I have to install LAVA Server from source?

If the server is installed, how can I make my extension take effect?

BR,
Terry

You can install lava server from our releases using pip. Create a virtualenv and type: pip install lava-server

Your extension needs to advertise itself using the entry point system. Look at setup.py for lava-dashboard, search for the extension line please.
