Mozilla A-Team – Unraveling the mystery of Talos – part 1 of a googol

Most people at Mozilla have heard of Talos, if you haven’t, Talos is the performance testing framework that runs for every checkin that occurs at Mozilla.

Over the course of the last year I have had the opportunity to extend, modify, retrofit, rewrite many parts of the harness and tests that make up Talos.

It seems that once or twice a month I get a question about Talos.  Wouldn’t it be nice if I documented Talos?  When Alice was the main owner of Talos, she had written up some great documentation and as of today I am announcing that it has gone through an update:

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Buildbot/Talos.

Stay tuned as there will be more updates to come as we make the documentation more useful.
