Test summary

Steps
Actual result
Expected result
Status - PASS/FAIL
1.Verify Notification message appears when ipmi event raised

1. Start collecd deamon : /install_folder/sbin/collectd

2. Generate event: ipmitool event 'CPU ERR2' 'State Deasserted'

3. Generate another event: ipmitool event 'Mem P1 Thrm Trip' 'Parity'

 

Notification message for CPU ERR2 State deasserted appears in syslog

Notification message for Mem P1 Thrm Tri parity appears in syslog,

 

Notification message for CPU ERR2 State deasserted appears in syslog

Notification message for Mem P1 Thrm Tri parity appears in syslog

PASS
2.Check Notification message don't appear when SELEnabled field set False

1. Set SELEnabled field false.

2. Start collecd deamon : /install_folder/sbin/collectd

3. Generate another event: ipmitool event 'Mem P1 Thrm Trip' 'Parity'

 

 

 

Notification message for Mem P1 Thrm Tri parity doesn't appear in syslog

 

 

 

Notification message for Mem P1 Thrm Tri parity doesn't appear in syslog

PASS
3Verify ipmi events handle data after collectd was restarted

1. Start collecd deamon : /install_folder/sbin/collectd

2. Generate event: ipmitool event 'CPU ERR2' 'State Deasserted'

3. Restart collecd deamon : /install_folder/sbin/collectd

4. Generate another event: ipmitool event 'Mem P1 Thrm Trip' 'Parity'

 

 

Notification message for CPU ERR2 State deasserted appears in syslog

 

 

Notification message for Mem P1 Thrm Tri parity appears in syslog

 

 

Notification message for CPU ERR2 State deasserted appears in syslog

 

Notification message for Mem P1 Thrm Tri parity appears in syslog

PASS
4Check ipmi events meta data

1. Start collecd deamon : /install_folder/sbin/collectd

2. Generate event: ipmitool event 'CPU ERR2' 'State Deasserted.

3. Using exec (python etc.) plugin

 

 

 

Obtained meta data with fields: TypeInstance = CPU ERR2 and

received event: state deasserted

 

 

 

Obtained meta data with fields: TypeInstance = CPU ERR2 and

received event: state deasserted

PASS
5Verify that Notification messages does not appear when collectd is stopped

1. Start collecd deamon : /install_folder/sbin/collectd

2. Generate event: ipmitool event 'CPU ERR2' 'State Deasserted.

3. Stop collectd.

4. Generate another event: ipmitool event 'Mem P1 Thrm Trip' 'Parity'

 

 

 

Notification message for CPU ERR2 State deasserted appears in syslog

 

Notification message for Mem P1 Thrm Tri parity doesn't appear in syslog

 

 

Notification message for CPU ERR2 State deasserted appears in syslog

 

Notification message for Mem P1 Thrm Tri parity doesn't appear in syslog

PASS
6

Check if SELClearEvent true, ipmi event received

only on first registered listener (collectd)

1. Start collecd deamon.

2. Start openipmi listener: ./openipmi_eventd domain1 smi 0 -b -f test.txt 

3. Generate event: ipmitool event 'CPU ERR2' 'State Deasserted'

4. Enable SELClearEvent field.

5. Restart collectd.

6. Generate ipmi event.

 

 

 

Notification raises in both collectd and openipmi listeners

 

 

Notification raises only in collectd listener

 

 

 

Notification raises in both collectd and openipmi listeners

 

Notification raises only in collectd listener

PASS
7Verify that ipmi cannot access BMC collectd plugin didn't handle data

1. Take out drivers from kernel:

 modprobe -r ipmi_si

2. Start collecd deamon.

 

 

Ipmi plugin did not loaded, collectd started

 

 

Ipmi plugin did not loaded, collectd started

PASS
8

Check impact when block of sensors turned off/on

1. Set up Sensors "BB Rt Rear Temp".

2. Set up IgnoreSelected true

3. Start collectd.

4. Generate event using ipmitool BB Rt Rear Temp.

5. Set up IgnoreSelected false

6. Restart collectd.

7. Generate event using ipmitool BB Rt Rear Temp.

 

 

 

Plugin stop dispatching BB Rt Rear Temp. Event for BB Rt Rear Temp sensor appeared

 

 

Plugin dispatching BB Rt Rear Temp. Event for BB Rt Rear Temp sensor appeared

 

 

 

Plugin stop dispatching BB Rt Rear Temp. Event for BB Rt Rear Temp sensor didn't appear

 

 

Plugin dispatching BB Rt Rear Temp. Event for BB Rt Rear Temp sensor appeared

PASS

 

9Measure time from event creation to notification

1. Start collecd deamon.

2. Generate event ipmitool event 'Mem P1 Thrm Trip' 'Parity'

3. Using exec plugin handle notification.

4. Subtract time from journalctl and from notification message.

 

 

 

 

Issue in timestamps

 

 

 

 

 

Time from event creation to notification raised should be less or equal to 5 ms.
