NAME

       ct_master - Distributed test execution control for Common Test.

DESCRIPTION

       Distributed test execution control for Common Test.

       This module exports functions for running Common Test nodes on multiple hosts in parallel.

EXPORTS

       abort() -> ok

              Stops all running tests.

       abort(Nodes) -> ok

              Types:

                 Nodes = atom() | [atom()]

              Stops tests on specified nodes.

       basic_html(Bool) -> ok

              Types:

                 Bool = true | false

              If  set to true, the ct_master logs will be written on a primitive html format, not
              using the Common Test CSS style sheet.

       progress() -> [{Node, Status}]

              Types:

                 Node = atom()
                 Status = finished_ok | ongoing | aborted | {error, Reason}
                 Reason = term()

              Returns test progress. If Status is ongoing, tests are running on the node and have
              not yet finished.

       run(TestSpecs) -> ok

              Types:

                 TestSpecs = string() | [SeparateOrMerged]

              Equivalent to run(TestSpecs, false, [], []).

       run(TestSpecs, InclNodes, ExclNodes) -> ok

              Types:

                 TestSpecs = string() | [SeparateOrMerged]
                 SeparateOrMerged = string() | [string()]
                 InclNodes = [atom()]
                 ExclNodes = [atom()]

              Equivalent to run(TestSpecs, false, InclNodes, ExclNodes).

       run(TestSpecs, AllowUserTerms, InclNodes, ExclNodes) -> ok

              Types:

                 TestSpecs = string() | [SeparateOrMerged]
                 SeparateOrMerged = string() | [string()]
                 AllowUserTerms = bool()
                 InclNodes = [atom()]
                 ExclNodes = [atom()]

              Tests  are  spawned  on  the nodes as specified in TestSpecs. Each specification in
              TestSpec will be handled separately. It is however possible to also specify a  list
              of specifications that should be merged into one before the tests are executed. Any
              test without a particular node specification will also be executed on the nodes  in
              InclNodes. Nodes in the ExclNodes list will be excluded from the test.

       run_on_node(TestSpecs, Node) -> ok

              Types:

                 TestSpecs = string() | [SeparateOrMerged]
                 SeparateOrMerged = string() | [string()]
                 Node = atom()

              Equivalent to run_on_node(TestSpecs, false, Node).

       run_on_node(TestSpecs, AllowUserTerms, Node) -> ok

              Types:

                 TestSpecs = string() | [SeparateOrMerged]
                 SeparateOrMerged = string() | [string()]
                 AllowUserTerms = bool()
                 Node = atom()

              Tests are spawned on Node according to TestSpecs.

       run_test(Node, Opts) -> ok

              Types:

                 Node = atom()
                 Opts = [OptTuples]
                 OptTuples  = {config, CfgFiles} | {dir, TestDirs} | {suite, Suites} | {testcase,
                 Cases} | {spec, TestSpecs} |  {allow_user_terms,  Bool}  |  {logdir,  LogDir}  |
                 {event_handler,   EventHandlers}   |   {silent_connections,   Conns}  |  {cover,
                 CoverSpecFile} | {cover_stop, Bool} | {userconfig, UserCfgFiles}
                 CfgFiles = string() | [string()]
                 TestDirs = string() | [string()]
                 Suites = atom() | [atom()]
                 Cases = atom() | [atom()]
                 TestSpecs = string() | [string()]
                 LogDir = string()
                 EventHandlers = EH | [EH]
                 EH = atom() | {atom(), InitArgs} | {[atom()], InitArgs}
                 InitArgs = [term()]
                 Conns = all | [atom()]

              Tests are spawned on Node using ct:run_test/1.
