Network Fabric Node wiring testing

A number of mis-wirings in the DComp testbed have been detected over the last several days. We are undertaking an effort to exhaustively test all the wiring in the testbed. This will include some nodes that are currently in experiments. This work entails the following.

  • installing LLDP on nodes for layer-2 discovery
  • sending console codes through serial interfaces and observing outputs
  • sending ACPI signals to nodes (these should be caught, and should not result in actual ACPI actions)
