  • What is the installation sequence?
  • Are default installation locations sufficient?
  • Do we need admin rights to run these tools?
  • Which Cygwin packages are needed?

Configuring Environment

No instructions on what exactly to place in the Hostperm.1 file. Hostperm.1 file is autogenerated and warns against editing it.

Make the Create extension_perf_reports part bold

The following is the default settings for the config.yaml extension section.

# Extensions to install in test (use "extensions: {}" for none)
       extensions: {}
         # Make sure that the path is directed to the desired location of the extension
         # Need quotes around guid because of curly braces
         #"{12345678-1234-1234-1234-abcd12345678}" : c:\path\to\unzipped\xpi : c:\path\to\other\unzipped\xpi

Received the following error message.

C:\mozilla\testing\performance\win32> config.yaml
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\mozilla\testing\performance\win32\", line 61, in ?
    import tp
  File "C:\mozilla\testing\performance\win32\", line 57, in ?
    import win32pdh
ImportError: No module named win32pdh

Realized that it was caused because I forgot to install the Python Win32 Extensions

WindowsError : [Errno 3] The system cannot find the path specified: 'c:\\docume~1\\domain~1\\locals~1\\temp\\tmpgdzhtf\\ profile/*.*'
