This directory contains infrastructure elements.
Files in this directory define a DAG of tasks which run at every Skia commit. A task is a small, self-contained unit which runs via Swarming on a machine in the pool. Tasks may be chained together, eg. one task to compile test binaries and another to actually run them.
Jobs are collections of related tasks which help define sub-sections of the DAG, for example, to be used as try jobs. Each job is defined as an entry point into the DAG.
The tasks.json file in this directory is the master list of tasks and jobs for the repo. Note that tasks.json is NEVER edited by hand but generated via gen_task.go and the input files enumerated below. The Task Scheduler reads the tasks.json file at each commit to determine which jobs to run. For convenience, gen_tasks.go is provided to generate tasks.json and also to test it for correct syntax and detecting cycles and orphaned tasks. Always edit gen_tasks.go or one of the following input JSON files, rather than tasks.json itself:
Whenever gen_tasks.go, any of the above JSON files, or assets are changed, you need to run gen_tasks.go to regenerate tasks.json:
$ go run infra/bots/gen_tasks.go
$ cd infra/bots; make train
There is also a test mode which performs sanity-checks and verifies that tasks.json is unchanged:
$ go run infra/bots/gen_tasks.go --test
$ cd infra/bots; make test
Recipes are the framework used by Skia's infrastructure to perform work inside of Swarming tasks. The main elements are:
These files determine which parts of the repository are transferred to the bot when a Swarming task is triggered. The Isolate tool hashes each file and will upload any new/changed files. Bots maintain a cache so that they can efficiently download only the files they don't have.
Artifacts used by the infrastructure are versioned here, along with scripts for recreating/uploading/downloading them. See the README in that directory for more information. Any time an asset used by the bots changes, you need to re-run gen_tasks.go.
Assorted other infrastructure-related tools, eg. isolate and CIPD binaries.
