Project “OPNFV – Base system functionality testing” will provide comprehensive testing methodology, test suites and test cases to test and verify OPNFV Platform functionality that covers the VIM and NFVI components.
This project uses a "top-down" approach that will start with chosen ETSI NFV use-case/s and open source VNFs for the functional testing. The approach taken will be to
This project will develop test suites that cover detailed functional test cases, test methodologies and platform configurations which will be documented and maintained in a repository for use by other OPNFV testing projects and the community in general. Developing test suites will also help lay the foundation for a test automation framework that in future can be used by the continuation integration (CI) project (Octopus). We envisage that certain VNF deployment use-cases could be automatically tested as an optional step of the CI process.
The project targets testing of the OPNFV platform in a hosted test-bed environment (i.e. using the OPNFV test labs world wide). It will leverage output of the "BGS" project.
The key objectives are:
A dedicated page for all the testing projects (Functest, Yardstick, Pharos, …) is available here.
“OPNFV – Base system functionality testing” will deliver a functional testing framework along with a set of test suites and test cases to test and verify the functionality OPNFV platform. The testing framework (tools, test-cases, etc.) are also intended to be used by the CI framework for the purpose of qualifying the OPNFV platform on bare metal servers. In this context, OPNFV Tester will use open source VNF components. Functional testing includes
The project requires the following components:
Functional tests shall be
|vPing||Arno||basic hello world example.|
|ODL||Arno||Using robotframework, 3 pending errors due to ODL bug in Arno.|
|Tempest||Arno||Smoke suite considered. Still troubleshooting to be done.|
|Rally||Arno||based on default Rally scenario. Still troubleshooting to be done.|
|vIMS||Brahmaputra||candidate testcase using Cloudify for VNF management. pre-study|
|ONOS||Brahmaputra||candidate using teston tool|
Dealing with Branches
Best practice ⇒ Cherry Pick from Master to Stable useful patches as described in Stable Branch
If you forgot that (it may happen and we experienced that for SR1) as Master and stable may be considered as the same, you may have to merge Master on Stable…and then winter is coming…so a procedure that works:
* git clone ssh://<Your_ID_assuming_you_have_the_merge_rights>@gerrit.opnfv.org:29418/functest functest-clean * git checkout stable/arno * git merge master * git push origin HEAD:refs/for/stable/arno
