Description

The test case EG-ADM-7 checks for availability of ExoGENI rack documentation. This ticket captures the requirement to deliver a ExoGENI Software Components Identification Documentation.

Overall goal

Find documents or procedures that:

  1. identify the ExoGENI software components
  2. identify the ExoGENI software components versions
  3. describe system file configuration settings required by the identified components
  4. provide instructions on how to get information about recent changes to the rack software and its configuration.

Findings:

Item 2, and item 4 - Could not find information for software versions and recent changes to the software, and changes to its configuration. Please let me if I missed any pages that define item 2 and 4.

Item 1 - Determine the complete list of software components. Have found the Software page at https://wiki.exogeni.net/doku.php?id=public:software:start which provides a list of:

  • ExoGENI Software - provides list of ExoGENI software stack components
  • GENI Software - provides list of additional components (external to ORCA).
  • Software aux_infrastructure - provides a list of auxiliary Infrastructure elements.

Do these 3 software pages provide the full list of components that ExoGENI uses for item 1?

Item 3 - Configuration information can be found at the private ExoGENI rack configuration page, which details:

Need to compare the list from item 3 with the full list of components from item 1, to makes sure all are captured in documentation.

Agree, the pages listed above takes care of:

  • item 1(identify the ExoGENI software components)
  • item 2(identify the ExoGENI software components versions)
  • item 3(describe system file configuration settings required by the identified components)

In the original description there is one more items that is still needed. Sorry, if I maybe missed it:

  • item 4(provide instructions on how to get information about recent changes to the rack software and its configuration).

I don't believe we have any mechanisms to do this.
