Welcome to Documentation for Workload Automation

Workload Automation (WA) is a framework for executing workloads and collecting measurements on Android and Linux devices. WA includes automation for nearly 40 workloads and supports some common instrumentation (ftrace, hwmon) along with a number of output formats.

WA is designed primarily as a developer tool/framework to facilitate data driven development by providing a method of collecting measurements from a device in a repeatable way.

WA is highly extensible. Most of the concrete functionality is implemented via plug-ins, and it is easy to write new plug-ins to support new device types, workloads, instruments or output processing.


To see the documentation of individual plugins please see the Plugin Reference.
