Smoke runs are meant to be executed on source code change and run as often as possible so the build and test stage need to be very fast in execution time.

SVN is polled for change 7 days a week between 06:00 and 01:00 GMT every 10 minutes, different groups (branches) of jobs are spaced apart with 1 minute and may overlap. The jobs executed are build-<tag> and test-<tag>.

Only the change is checked out and only the change is built.

Smoke testing is done by the build bot in pull requests.

Daily runs

Daily runs, as they are called, runs run daily and have a time slot of a few an hours or so. They can include more heavy tests that can take longer to run.

Daily runs are executed Tuesday to Sunday at 02:00 GMT, different groups (branches) are not spaced apart and the jobs executed are test-daily-<tag>.

Weekly runs

Weekly runs runs weekly and is a combination of Smoke and Daily runs that daily from 03:00 GMT:

  • 03:00 - 1.3
  • 03:30 - 1.3-mysql
  • 04:00 - 1.4
  • 04:30 - 1.4-mysql
  • 05:00 - trunk
  • 05:30 - trunk-mysql

The daily jobs chain starts with the requirements and ends with the test-daily-* job. Example of OpenDNSSEC 1.3; build-softhsm-1.3 => build-opendnssec-1.3 => test-opendnssec-1.3 => test-daily-opendnssec-1.3 .

Weekly runs (not running yet)

Weekly runs run on a weekly basis and is lead by a clean up job so that the which then triggers a full build.


Therefore the following Smoke and Daily runs happen on newly checked out code and all build and test jobs will be rebuilt from scratch.

 (A further test-weekly-<tag> job may be added in future to these runs.)

Weekly runs are executed on Monday at 02:00 GMT, different groups (branches) are not spaced apart and the jobs executed are test-weekly-<tag>.Fri/Sat/Sun at the moment:

  • FRI 12:05am - enforcer-ng
  • (FRI 2:00am - enforcer-ng-mysql  NOTE: NOT SET UP YET)
  • SAT 12:05am - trunk
  • SAT 2:00am - trunk-mysql
  • SUN 12:05am - 1.3
  • SUN 2:00am - 13.-mysql


Everything is rebuilt from scratch on Sundays from 12:00 GMT.

  • 12:00 - 1.3
  • 13:00 - 1.3-mysql
  • 14:00 - 1.4
  • 15:00 - 1.4-mysql
  • 16:00 - trunk
  • 17:00 - trunk-mysql


The framework is a bundle of shell script (bash) functions that sets up an environment per branch for building and testing.
