For those interested, XenRT is the test system for XenServer, and has
several categories.

The first is the BVT - "Basic Verification Test".  This does install,
and running a single test from each of the primary areas (e.g. single PV
vm, single HVM vm, one migrate, one vlan, etc).  This test is performed
automatically on all code submission.

The next is the BST - "Branch Safety Test".  This is a substantially
larger set of basic functional tests.  It is 5-8 hours to run and is run
as-and-when a developer decides they have put in a large chunk of work
and want rather more testing than a BVT, but don't want to commit the
resources of a nightly on something which might crash and burn.

The third is the Nightly test.  This is 2.5K tests taking ~16h and ~150
machines, which is a fairly comprehensive test of XenServer.

Beyond that there are sets of tests run less often, including the
nightly and weekend stress tests.
