Using Ansible Tower to automate baremetal benchmarking

 

At AMD we manufacture semiconductors, specifically CPUs and GPUs. As you might expect, we have to collect a LOT of performance data on them during development (and after). This is a case study on how AMD implemented Ansible, Red Hat Ansible Tower, and RedHat OSP to create a bare metal deployment service to allow for automated benchmark runs. It talks about the playbooks for both OS deployment and benchmark deployment and execution.
