High As part of server testing, and specially introducing the ARM server release, a set of standard load/stress testing needs to be introduced. Covering the basic areas (memory, cpu, I/O ,..) but also the most common server applications: Distributed Datastores “LAMP” Web Server Caching Backup Server This test capability should also be considered for Certification testing and benchmarking It is also important to understand that this could require significant outlay in capital for new hardware. Depending on what we wish to focus on, we could need to purchase a server or two to serve as full time targets, storage solutions such as Fibrechannel or iSCSI, 10Gb Ethernet devices, fibre cables, network cables, PDUs, KVMs and so forth. Additionally, it is my thought that Hardware Certification should focus on tests that test the hardware subsystems themselves, and Platform cover the more QA related tests, such as testing various common applications like the LAMP stack, Squid, mail services, and so forth. The Definition of Done as listed below in the whiteboard is lengthy for now, but lists very specific items that I believe need to be achieved in order to do worthwhile server testing. In the end, the true goal is to be able to really hammer servers in various situations to ensure that 12.04 becomes the best LTS release for servers ever. The full spec url includes user stories for both the greater server test suite expansion and the load testing subset described here. LP Wont let me use the same url so pasting it here:

Low It is not infrequently suggested that we should be stopping using VMBuilder in favor of the newer, supported image creation tools like live-build. We should create a feature matrix to make sure that all of VMBuilder's functionality (i.e. ec2 image creation) is matched by another tool. If features are missing, then VMBuilder cannot (yet) be dropped. If the community speaks up to say they prefer VMBuilder, then that will be valuable information.

Essential Ensemble is ready for users to start hacking on formulas and the code. The best way to get it into users' hands is to add it, and all of its dependencies, to Ubuntu, and make sure they are tested going forward.

Medium As Ubuntu Server begins to grow it's user base and popularity, I think we need to give serious thought to having a better process around doing our documentation. Currently, all we have for Ubuntu Server is a pure community ran effort: Which is absolutely great, however as we begin to be compared more to RHEL and SLES: I think it's fair to say we need to step up our do we do that?
