Test-as-a-Service and XenRT - Alex Brett, Citrix
In this presentation, Alex Brett will show how Citrix has constructed a Test-as-a-Service environment which is used by the wider XenServer engineering team, highlighting the benefits the approach provides, together with an introduction to the (recently open sourced) XenRT automation framework which powers it, and discuss how this could be applied within the Xen Project community.

Perf Support in Xen, Boris Ostrovsky, Oracle
Hardware performance monitoring facilities such as counters can provide invaluable information about system behavior. In recent years, Linux 'perf' has become the standard tool for managing these facilities and interpreting data that they generate. In this talk we will discuss changes to Xen and Linux that will allow PV guests (including dom0) use perf for profiling themselves and, in the case of dom0, the hypervisor.


Boris Ostrovsky

Boris Ostrovsky is currently at Oracle working on various Linux and Xen projects.
