14:08:48 <mackonstan> #info Tibor, added all new icx testbeds, they've been tested with rc2 images, quite a few issues, all fixed
14:08:59 <mackonstan> #info Welcome Fan!
14:10:41 <mackonstan> #info Tibor, added comparison tables with throughput normalized to 2 GhZ frequency
14:14:05 <mackonstan> #info Tibor, the new comparison tables are available for preview here
14:14:37 <mackonstan> #link https://s3-docs.fd.io/csit/master/report/_static/vpp/norm-compare-testbeds-3n-skx-3n-icx-1c-pdr.txt
14:15:21 <mackonstan> #info the original comparison tables are still there

14:23:28 <mackonstan> #info Vratko proposed improvement, add new column to existing tables, call it normalized diff and be done with it
14:23:50 <mackonstan> #info no need to calling out any normalizaation freq as it cancels out
14:24:15 <mackonstan> #agreed go ahead with Vratko's proposal, Tibor will push a new patch
14:24:32 <dwallacelf> #info Dave Wallace
14:25:15 <mackonstan> #info Tibor, rls artefacts testing starting tomorrow
14:25:47 <mackonstan> #info Maciek, Viliam, working on the documenting the known issues into the report
14:26:41 <mackonstan> #info Vratko, looking at regressions, one at 2% but noisy so unclear if a real one
14:27:44 <mackonstan> #info Vratko, some 3n-dnv fluctuations due to wrong links speed negotiations
14:28:13 <mackonstan> #info Vratko, 100 GbE multi-core speedup results are looking good, close to linear :)
14:30:46 <mackonstan> #info Vratko, Peter, 2n-zn2 multi-core speedup graphs are not looking too good

14:33:22 <mackonstan> #info Peter, will double-check the setup and the environment and report back in next couple of days
14:34:17 <mackonstan> #info Peter, vpp telemetry collection, fixed now, and showing the correct as expected values for all telemetry, show run, show int, show perfmon
14:36:52 <mackonstan> #info Maciek, now that we are collecting correct telemetry, would like us to consider, after the release, to add them to the CSTI UTI model and provide User Interface to see and compare them
14:37:56 <mackonstan> #info Maciek, Peter, SNR SUTs re still down, due to inability to use IPMI for console access.
14:38:48 <mackonstan> #info Peter, working on adding SNR testbeds to ansible playbooks, to bring them up and verify them, possibly may be able to executed dry runs, and possibly have data for the rls
14:39:54 <mackonstan> #info Peter, as we don't have access to BIOS, the test results may not be reliable
14:41:54 <mackonstan> #info Tibor, re CVL 100 GbE flow-based tests, got added to job - the patch is still not merged
