Traffic-Generator As A Service (TGAAS) – develop common methods and tools for use in performance testing projects.
|2hrs||We would like to reuse, merge and extend existing TG methods across performance testing projects. We would also like to explore creating a new project for Traffic Generators which is an important and complex topic. Our proposed first step is to identify abstraction differences between Yardstick and VSPerf.|
|Testing Priorities in F release||3hrs|
Landing page for unified entrance of testing resources
Long duration testing
|NFVBench and VSPERF collaboration||1hrs||VSPERF and NFVBench would like to explore areas for collaboration. Other performance testing projects are encouraged to join this session to brainstorm strategies for leveraging existing and new work planned for Fraser|
VSPERF collaboration activities
VSPERF has a Plugfest planning page https://etherpad.opnfv.org/p/Plugfest-Euphrates-VSPERF
|Data Plane Performance Benchmarking in production pods with NFVbench||1 hr|
In this session we will discuss about NFVi production deployments and challenges related to benchmarking the data plane of an NFVi pod in production conditions.
NFVbench has been released for the first time with euphrates. We will see how it complements other OPNFV data plane benchmarking projects (VSPerf, VNFSample) and go through all the features that are available today.
We will do a live demo of NFVbench running on one of the OPNFV pod.
This session will be interesting for operators and for OPNFV projects that want to include NFVi full system testing on data plane (e.g. CVP, Dovetail, ONAP...).
Preferred time slot: anytime on Wednesday or Thursday
|High availability testing cases discussion||1 hr|
HA test cases planning for F release and future releases. We will update with the community about the recent progress of the HA testcases, and have a discussion about future test cases that we proposed.
|Release Automation||1 hour|
|Docker Infrastructure & Builds||2 hour||Trevor Bramwell|
|Scenario documentation||1h||Review of the requirements. Discussion on how we document, store and work with the scenario descriptions.|
Current status, what's next, establishing pipelines for Test (and other) OPNFV Projects, which other communities we are reaching out.
CI pipeline for long duration test
More details TBD
|Experiences and thoughts on PDF/IDF and way forward with SDF||2h|
Session to have conversation around PDF/IDF so the people who worked with them can share their experiences with others. Relation of SDF can be part of the conversation.
Please note that this is not a planning or endless conversation session like the ones we had before. We are in a state that majority of the installers already adapted PDF/IDF and it is already happening. Apart from that, we seriously need to finalize the official template as it is a requirement for LaaS/other Infra Initiatives and PDF/IDF will be prerequisite for Installers to benefit from LaaS.
|Using OpenStack Kolla containers for XCI|
1h (before Thursday PM)
|The XCI project currently tests upstream OpenStack using PackStack off of master and tests the test projects. Adding a stable version of Kolla to test the test tools could ease the RCA of failures in the test tools.|
|Testing hardware/software interactions brainstorming (testing/infra cross-topic)||1h||Tim Irnich|
We are missing a way to create tests of the OPNFV software platform with the Pharos lab hardware without making tests lab-specific, which would limit usability of such tests and be in conflict with the concept of dynamic CI. Examples are some of the currently considered high-availability test cases that target e.g. switching fabric failure conditions, configuration of L2GW HW-VTEP on ToR switches, SMartNIC integration testing, DC-GW integration testing etc.
We will discuss how to address this through a set of coordinated actions towards Pharos spec, test frameworks, infra/releng, and PDF.

|Scenario consolidation - how to make it happen?||2 hours||Tim Irnich||Reviving the scenario consolidation discussion, cf. the presentation from Beijing summit. Target is to drive specific features into the more "generic" scenarios in order to foster cross/feature integration and achieve a richer set of functionality users have available after installation of a given scenario.|
