Project: Yardstick - Infrastructure Verification

Release-B Deliverables

Description

The goal of the Yardstick Project is to verify the infrastructure compliance when running VNF applications.

NFV Use Cases described in ETSI GS NFV 001 show a large variety of applications, each defining specific requirements and complex configuration on the underlying infrastructure and test tools.The Yardstick concept decomposes typical VNF work-load performance metrics into a number of characteristics/performance vectors, which each of them can be represented by distinct test-cases.

The project's scope is to develop a test framework, test cases and test stimuli. The methodology used by the Project, to verify the infrastructure form the perspective of a VNF, shall be aligned with ETSI TST001.

  • Meetings:
    • Weekly coordination meeting: Thursdays 14h00 UTC, see Meeting details
    • Work meetings:
      • IRC only - channel: #opnfv-yardstick
      • Mondays & Thursdays UTC 8h30 - 9h00
      • Mondays UTC 15h00 - 16h00
    • Design sessions and Cross-OPNFV Projects cooperation: see details

Scope

The following are in the project scope:

  • Decompose VNF work-load performance metrics into a number of characteristics/performance vectors, identifying and categorizing the metrics related to characterization of the infrastructure, develop test case examples to realize the metrics;
  • Enable verification of more complex test cases by developing functionality to run parallel testing, inject fault, test multiple topologies, test scenarios.
  • Methodology for verifying infrastrucuture from the perspective of a VNF aligned with ETSI TST 001.
