Collectd have started.

 PASSYES
7Verify if Cores is empty  in collectd.conf , error appears

1. Open collecd.conf file: vim /install_folder/etc/collectd.conf

2. Configure intel_rdt : 
leave Cores section blank

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

Error raises "Reading the config file failed!"

Collectd was not started

 PASSYES
8Check if Cores keyword is changed,  warning  message appears 

1. Open collecd.conf file: vim /install_folder/etc/collectd.conf

2. Configure intel_rdt : 
change Cores to "Core"

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

Message appears : "intel_rdt: Unknown configuration parameter "Core"".
Collectd have started.

Message appears : "intel_rdt: Unknown configuration parameter "Core"".
Collectd have started.
PASSYES
9Verify if in intel_rdt section is present extra keyword with value, collectd and intel_rdt have started

1. Open collecd.conf file: vim /install_folder/etc/collectd.conf

2. Configure intel_rdt : 
add extra key - value: Interval 1

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

Intel_rdt: Unknown configuration parameter "Interval".

Intel_rdt and collectd have started

Intel_rdt: Unknown configuration parameter "Interval".
Intel_rdt and collectd have started
PASSYES
10Check if Core is used by another process (pqos), error message appears  

 1. Start pqos -m: 0 (pqos will monitored Core 0 for same parameters as intel_rdt).

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

Error starting monitoring group 0 (pqos status=3)
Collectd have started.

Error starting monitoring group 0 (pqos status=3)
Collectd have started.
PASSYES

SNMP Intel_rdt plugin tests:

Test Environment details:

  • Bare Metal, U16.04 

Tests precondition:

  • Installed PQoS/Intel(R) RDT library (libpqos).
  • Installed collectd and enabled csv plugin.
  • Enabled snmp oids for intel_rdt plugin.

Open questions:

  • Our testing platform supports only rdtLlc, rdtIpc parameters testing. So, due to platform limitation only rdtLlc, rdtIpc have been verified.
    Question is: can we claim feature as tested in case if half of parameters are working as expected?

    If not, we will re-executed these tests with rdtMbmRemote, rdtMbmLocal verification once we received new platform.
