Introduction

Recent autotest supports passing test parameters to control file through --args options. This is also been introduced in kvm-autotest which can let user do some basic tests configurations (variants limitation or excluding, parameters configuration) through command line.

You should have some basic understanding of the test parameters and configuration file format before using the command line. If not, you are suggested to read the test configuration file format and test parameters before continuing.

How to use

The usage is very simple, suppose you are in the directory of kvm subtest:

  1. ../../bin/autotest control --args="key1=value1 key2=value2 ...... keyN=valueN"
