MobLab Release Notes


Mar 16th 2021: Moblab Update

 

***You should reboot your Moblab when next not running tests to get this latest version of the software.***

 

To check you have the latest Moblab software you can just look at this text in the configuration page, if it says No updates found you have the latest. 

 

 

Moblab checks for new versions every  1 hour.

 

Highlights

  • The old UI has been removed.

  • Result Uploads use less bandwidth particularly for CTS/GTS.

  • StorageQual setup check has been moved to the UI.

  • New button to provision DUTs.


UI - Configuration Page

Stable Chrome OS version configuration

Set the version of Chrome OS used during the DUT repair process.  


Powerwash is required to update google account configuration.

If a Moblab is moved from one account to another, it must be powerwashed or the data will not show correctly on CPCon.  This has been enforced in the Moblab UI.

UI - Manage DUT Page

Added DUT labels to summary page

Added MAC Address to summary page

Similar to the old UI the DUT labels show up on the manage DUT page.


Added “Reverify Selected” button

Similar to the old UI you can select a set of DUTs and force a reverify.  If verify fails then a repair will be performed. There is a quick select option for all "Repair Failed" DUT's


Added Provision DUT’s button

Based on user feedback we have added a button that will allow you to provision some or all of the DUT’s attached to the Moblab to a particular version for testing.  This is useful for manual CTS-V testing.

UI - DUT Detail

Added link to logs in DUT Actions History

UI - Run Suite 

Added suites hardware_thermalqual_fast / hardware_thermalqual_full


Added DUTs configuration check for Storage Qualification suite to UI.

Previously you would run a test called “check_setup_storage_qual” now the same logic is built into the UI so you can not run a storage qual suite without the correct labels/number of DUT’s

UI - View Jobs

Upload status is now shown as an icon; a cloud icon means it has been uploaded to CPCon.

Offloader

Faster uploads using less bandwidth

Files are now compressed before upload. CTS/GTS will not upload debug files for PASSED tests. 

Other

Various bug fixes and improvements.




Jan 30th 2021: Moblab Update

***You should reboot your Moblab when next not running test to get this latest version of the software.***

There has been an bug fix update to moblab to fix one important ( but rare ) bug and two smaller 
issues.

Note the OS version of moblab will not change with this update, if you want to make sure you have the latest
version of moblab reboot, and check the configuration page, and make sure it says "No updates found"


Fixes:
Results Offloader:
    Fix issue where in rare circumstances the database can get out of sync and the results get sent to CPCon before
    the test has actually completed:  https://crbug.com/1171428

UI
    Show more builds in the dropdown to select a build number:  https://crbug.com/1157114

Remote Agent
    Fix issue where disconnected devices were not showing up correctly. https://crbug.com/1167377
  

Jan 21th 2021: Moblab Update

***You should reboot your Moblab to get this latest version of the software.***

This update includes an update to the underlying moblab ChromeOS version; after the update you will be running version R87-13505.101.0

OS Recovery Image, in the case you need to recover your Moblab.


To check you have the latest Moblab software you can just look at this text in the configuration page, if it says No updated found you have the latest. 


Moblab checks for new versions every  1 hour.


Moblab "Pause":
    This is a new feature, it allow users with particularly long running suites, normally storage qualification, to pause their Moblab so they can update the software
    or stop generating data if they have a particularly slow uplink to Google.

    It should be noted - this feature does NOT stop the current running tests.  It prevents new tests from being scheduled, you can then have to wait until all your DUT's
    are in "ready" state.  After then you can safely update/reboot your Moblab without losing data.

    Moblab will automatically turn on Pause feature if your disk space is getting low.  This typically happens when your Moblab is generating data faster than your
    internet connection can copy it to Google.  The Pause will allow time for your Moblab to catch up and you can unpause when there is enough disk space available.

Remote Console
    Bug fixes and some changes to how often data is sent back to CPCon about failed DUT's.

Uploader
    Improved performance when there are problems or slow connections, uploader will now only retry files that have not already been copied to the cloud rather than
    re-trying the copy of all the files in the in the test result.

UI 
    Run Suite:   The "Other" Tab now has a drop down list of suites you can run.   You can still select an option to enter a suite name that is not on the list.


Other non user visible bug fixes.

This likely will be the last release that includes the Old UI - we have got feedback on features that need to be included in the new UI and are working on those
for the next release.  We will address all feedback before the remove the Old UI.



December 7th 2020: Moblab Update

***You should reboot your Moblab to get this latest version of the software.***

Manage DUT’s:

  • Launch beta of firmware inspect/update.  

    • You can now view the current firmware version of all the current attached DUT’s.  The version in the updater package is also shown and you can choose to update the firmware to that version if you wish.   This is still a beta feature please file bugs / ask questions if you have issues.




Configuration:

  • Added checkbox for remote command.   If you are not a CTS 3PL you can ignore this setting,   It is only useful to a few CTS 3PL labs.

General:

  • There is a warning message on the old UI, we are going to remove that UI in January. Please file bugs if you still need to use it.

  • Add logs links to the View Jobs table.
