OPNFV Plugfest report 

May 9th & 10th:

  • 41 participants from 19 organizaions (incl. 3 non-members)

  • Everyone found plenary sessions on Functest/Yardstick/Storperf to be valuable and noted the benefits of having project leads from testing and install projects at the Plugfest

  • Many participants are starting to work with new installers that they have not worked with previously

  • Found & corrected documentation issues (e.g. for Yardstick)

  • On-site hardware resources are being heavily utilized and may even borrow a POD from CableLabs

May 12th:
  • Installer teams going through install and testing (e.g. Functest, Yardstick, etc.) on the same hardware (Intel POD) with data being populated into the plugfest test database
  • Participants are continuing work across different installers and the feedback is that the learning curve for new installers is a challenge.
  • More VNFs testing in progress.
