2023 Work Plan for the Test and Quality Assurance Working Group

Work Plan for 2023

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 (Julia, Soon, Krzysztof)
  • Geant-val, Grid testing, Reproducibility tests (Alberto, Dmitri)

Support, Maintenance and Developments

  • System testing shifts
    • Maintain and support integration testing (Gunter)
  • Release testing
    • Maintain nightly testing setup (Gunter)
    • General testing/debugging of problems showing up especially during the release periods or development releases (Gabriele)
    • Q/A monitoring with Valgrind and Coverity (Gabriele)
    • Run Geant4 validation tests for Geant-val (Dmitri)
    • Hadronic shower tests with simplified calorimeters (Alberto,Dmitri)
    • Reproducibility tests (Alberto)
    • Geant4 version test, physics validation, etc., by comparing the modeling results from experiments conducted by our institute (Eunju)
  • 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 (Julia, Soon, Krzysztof)
    • Adding of the profiling of new applications as needed and possible¬†(Julia, Soon)
    • 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)
    • Low energy physics profiling using Brachytherapy code (Kiheyon, Kyungho)
    • Testing Geant4 on evolving architecture using KISTI-5 supercomputer (Kiheyon, Kyungho)
  • Continue to encourage the collaboration to provide more tests and more rigorous tests (All)
