Ticket #68 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Process without interaction (handy: cron mode)
|Reported by:||joachim||Owned by:||bruno|
pb should be able to run the whole process cms2vm and test2vm without any gui and user interaction (if ssh is configured correctly by the user).
We use Project-Builder to run tests during the night on different distributions (results: softqa.engsas.de/meganizer). This test are run by cron without gui and any interaction.
- Problem gui less:
We discussed some points concerning making pb guiless on the mailing list, if there are no changes right now, i've appended the patch, which I suggested there. The patch assumes, that the user wants to access the VM only if he launches launchvm. All other launches are done by pb and therefore I assume, that the user does not interact with VM manually.
We started to discuss some other possible solutions, which may be better. This ticket should be ment as a remind, to go on with that discussion.
- Sometimes the vm hangs:
Sometimes, the VM hangs (randomly, don't know why), but pb does not detect it, so I suggest to let the user define a default max time per vm, after that time, the vm is halted or killed if halt is not working. This does not solve the problem with the vm, but the process isn't stopped completly and the following vm's are at least processed.
