RFC: Generating dummy database
This is split off from #517.
Context: when researching for performance improvements a LAVA database that closely reflects production environment would allow checking key use cases. Sharing such a DB could provide reproduction paths for the results from this research. Actual production environment database might not be available for distribution.
I wasn't able to find a utility that would generate a dummy LAVA database. I checked lava-users, lava-devel and linaro-validation mailing lists.
A new Django app within LAVA project seems to be the quickest way to get started with generating dummy DB for reproducing research paths/results. DB generation parameters could be adjusted through management command arguments. I'll share a PoC on
generate-dummy-db branch in my fork.
