What we test: plugin board firmware that resides inside higher end
servers. The firmware consists of a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC)
accessed via a "Management Processor" layer (MP).
Our current test harness is based on tcl & expect scripts typically run
over a telnet connection but the harness can also talk via serial
connection. These scripts send commands, expect command responses and
then can send other commands (log list, read sensor, read LED state, etc)
to verify that test passed or failed. (Much of what the BMC does is based
on Intel's IPMI specifications -
We're investigating other test frameworks and tools to help us better
manage and develop tests quickly as we move to newer releases of firmware.
It appears that TPTP has a few components that would be useful for
porting to the eclipse framework but the majority of automated testing
relies on agent execution on the test system end. Has anyone done any
work in automating testing via telnet &/or serial connection to a command
line interface? Any other eclipse projects/plugins that we should be
aware of in our investigation?
