    "content": "Previously, unit tests were running in groups. There were technical reasons why that was the case (mostly having to do with limiting memory), but it was hard to maintain and update the autotest script.\n\nIn 18.05, limiting of memory at DPDK startup was no longer necessary, as DPDK allocates memory at runtime as needed. This has the implication that the old test grouping can now be retired and replaced with a more sensible way of running unit tests (using multiprocessing pool of workers and a queue of tests). This patchset accomplishes exactly that.\n\nThis patchset merges changes done in [1], [2]\n\n[1] http://dpdk.org/dev/patchwork/patch/40370/\n[2] http://patches.dpdk.org/patch/40373/\n\nRemoved unused and duplicate make rules for test-basic,\ntest-mempool, test-ring from make file system in patch 10/10.\n\nv4: Removed unused and duplicate make rules for test-basic,\ntest-mempool, test-ring from make file system in patch 10/10.\n\nReshma Pattan (10):\n  autotest: fix printing\n  autotest: fix invalid code on reports\n  autotest: make autotest runner python 2/3 compliant\n  autotest: visually separate different test categories\n  autotest: improve filtering\n  autotest: remove autotest grouping\n  autotest: properly parallelize unit tests\n  autotest: update autotest test case list\n  mk: update make targets for classified testcases\n  mk: remove unnecessary make rules of test\n\n mk/rte.sdkroot.mk            |    4 +-\n mk/rte.sdktest.mk            |   32 +-\n test/test/autotest.py        |   13 +-\n test/test/autotest_data.py   | 1081 +++++++++++++++++++++++++-----------------\n test/test/autotest_runner.py |  519 ++++++++++----------\n 5 files changed, 947 insertions(+), 702 deletions(-)"
