buildtest is a testing framework to help HPC sites write test for their system as part of their routine acceptance & regression test. buildtest provides a YAML interface to write tests which buildtest can validate and generate shell scripts that can run on your HPC system. The test template (YAML) is called buildspec which can define one or more test instance that is validated by a json schema. buildtest supports the following batch schedulers for job submission: IBM Spectrum LSF, Slurm, and Cobalt. We publish the schema documentation, json schemas, and schema examples at https://buildtesters.github.io/buildtest/ which is useful when you are writing buildspecs.
A spin-off project called lmodule is a Python API for Lmod. The buildtest module features were deprecated and moved to lmodule with the main objective is to automate module load testing. For more details on lmodule see https://github.com/buildtesters/lmodule
