This Pharos page explains the current status of Labs for support of development, test and CI activities. For future we plan to have dashboards with live information.
Tracking actual capabilities, status and ongoing usage of our diverse community lab resources is non-trivial ... however its needed to support projects and releases with accurate planning. To achieve this we need easy visibility of our lab resources, their capabilities as well as current and past usage.
Information on Linux Foundation lab access and usage is found here.
Production CI Resources are the resources (full baremetal PODs or standalone machines) that are tied to CI on 24x7 basis with no manual intervention. These resources are used for
Information on test combinations and allocations/combinations/hardware dependencies can be seen from Colorado Scenario Inventory.
Discussions regarding alignment of configuration for POD-layout/Build/Deploy/Test can be seen fromConfiguration File Alignment Discussions.

Labs listed here are operational and being actively used for either development (features and/or tools), test (feature testing or dedicated to test project), production (dedicated with 24/7 SLA). Note a community lab can provide one or more of these capabilities.
Information on project needs from labs was collected from lab owners by a survey (closed 16 Oct 2015) ... https://www.surveymonkey.com/results/SM-CYC35WH2
