Ongoing regular activities

  • Oversee testing shifts (Gunter)
  • Release management and Q/A monitoring with Valgrind and Coverity (Gabriele)
  • Perform regular profiling benchmarking of G4 development and public releases (Soon, Krzysztof, Andrea)
  • Grid testing, Reproducibility tests (Alberto, Dmitri)

Support, Maintenance and Developments

  • System testing shifts
  • Maintain and support integration testing (Gunter)

  • Release testing
  • General testing/debugging of problems showing up especially during the release periods or development releases (Gabriele)
  • Q/A monitoring with Valgrind and Coverity(Gabriele)
  • Grid testing with simplified calorimeters: running, maintaining, migration (Dmitri, Alberto)
  • Reproducibility tests (Alberto)
  • Deploying of latest Dirac server for Grid validation(Dmitri)
  • Developing a new grid validation web interface and integrating Geant4 tests into this system(Dmitri)

  • Performance profiling and benchmarking
  • Regular profiling/benchmarking of Geant4 development and public releases, maintenance and evolution of the profiling infrastructure in response to the changing computing environment (Soon,Krzysztof, Daniel)
  • Finishing the migration from the FAST profiler to Open|SpeedShop(Soon, Krzysztof, Daniel)
  • Adding new IF related application(s) (Soon,Krzysztof,Daniel)
  • Consulting on the use of performance tools and interpretation of the results as well as evaluating the performance gain of various code improvements/ideas (Canal)

  • Carry over from 2016 on the ARM inclusion in CDash (Andrea)

  • Low energy physics profiling using Brachytherapy code (Kiheyon)

  • Continue to encourage the collaboration to provide more tests and more rigorous tests (All)
