Prerequisites

Status for test prerequisites:

Prereq: InstaGENI makes available at least two Linux distributions and a FreeBSD image as stated in design document

Status: Done

Prereq: Two GPO customized Ubuntu image snapshots are available and have been manually uploaded by the rack administrator using available InstaGENI documentation. One Ubuntu image is for the VM and one Ubuntu image is for the physical node in this test.

Status: Done

Prereq: Traffic generation tools may be part of image or may be installed at experiment runtime.

Status: Done: Only using ping with mixed sizes and rates for now.

Prereq: Administrative accounts have been created for GPO staff on the Utah InstaGENI rack.

Status: Done

Prereq: GENI Experimenter1 and Experimenter2 accounts exist.

Status: Done. Two account already exist, lnevers@bbn.com and lnevers1@bbn.com, these will be used in all acceptance tests.

Prereq: Baseline Monitoring is in place for the entire Utah site, to ensure that any problems are quickly identified.

Status: Blocked on prerequisite tests completion.

Test Plan Steps

Step 1. As Experimenter1, request ListResources from Utah InstaGENI

As experimenter lnevers@bbn.com requested the list of available resources as follows:

 $ ./src/omni.py -a insta-utah listresources --available --api-version 2 -t GENI 3 --available -o

Step 2. Review advertisement RSpec for a list of OS images which can be loaded, and identify available resources

Used the output file from previous step to determine list of OS images available and available compute resources:

 $ egrep "node component|disk_image|available" rspec-boss-utah-geniracks-net-protogeni-xmlrpc-am-2-0.xml 

The following disk images were listed:

<disk_image description="FreeBSD 8.2 32-bit version" name="urn:publicid:IDN+utah.geniracks.net+image+emulab-ops:FBSD82-STD" os="FreeBSD" version="8.2"/>      
<disk_image default="true" description="Standard 32-bit Fedora 15 image" name="urn:publicid:IDN+utah.geniracks.net+image+emulab-ops:FEDORA15-STD" os="Fedora" version="15"/>      
<disk_image description="Standard 64-bit Ubuntu 11 image" name="urn:publicid:IDN+utah.geniracks.net+image+emulab-ops:UBUNTU11-64-STD" os="Linux" version="11.04"/>      
<disk_image default="true" description="Standard 32-bit Fedora 15 image" name="urn:publicid:IDN+utah.geniracks.net+image+emulab-ops:FEDORA15-STD" os="Fedora" version="15"/>      

Note 1: instaticket:14 written for duplicate default image in the Advertisement RSpec.

Step 3. Verify that the GPO Ubuntu customized image is available in the advertisement RSpec

Defined customized OS image as defined in the Custom OS InstaGENI notes page and in instaticket:20.

Images available are part of the listresources output which was collected as shown below:

$ ./src/omni.py -a https://boss.utah.geniracks.net/protogeni/xmlrpc/am/2.0 listresources --api-version 2 -t GENI 3 --available -o

Found that custom images along with available for PC1:

<node component_id="urn:publicid:IDN+utah.geniracks.net+node+pc1" component_manager_id="urn:publicid:IDN+utah.geniracks.net+authority+cm" component_name="pc1" exclusive="true">    
<disk_image description="Ubuntu 12.04 image " name="urn:publicid:IDN+utah.geniracks.net+image+gpo:LNUBUNTU1204" os="Linux" version="2.6.38.7-1.0"/>      
<available now="true"/>    

Step 4. Define a request RSpec for two VMs, each with a GPO Ubuntu image

Test is also to request a publically routable IP address and public TCP/UDP port mapping for the control interface on each node

Issue:

Using advertised Ubuntu or FreeBSD images is not supported for sliver_type emulab-openvz. This does not allow the execution of step 4 in the IG-EXP-2 InstaGENI Single Site test case, found at http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/GENIRacksHome/AcceptanceTests/InstageniAcceptanceTestsPlan#IG-EXP-2:InstaGENISingleSiteAcceptanceTest.

Two options available:

(a) Modify step 4 to assume default image is used (Fedora15).

(b) Modify step 4 to assume a raw-pc is used to load the custom image, which duplicates later step 12 in the procedure.

Choosing option (a) for the execution of step 4, which implies that RSpec is modified to use default OpenVZ image.

Step 5. Create the first slice

Created the slice as follows:

$ ./src/omni.py createslice ig-exp2-2vm  

Step 6. Create a sliver in the first slice, using the "modified" RSpec as defined in step 4

Created a 2 VM sliver, checked sliver status for completion, and determine assigned host from the sliverstatus sliver manifest:

$ ./src/omni.py createsliver -a insta-utah ig-exp2-2vm --api-version 2 -t GENI 3 ./instarspec/insta-2vm-v3.rspec 
$ ./src/omni.py sliverstatus -a insta-utah ig-exp2-2vm --api-version 2 -t GENI 3 -o
$ egrep "hostname|port" ig-exp2-2vm-sliverstatus-boss-utah-geniracks-net-protogeni-xmlrpc-am-2-0.json

Step 7. Log in to each of the systems, and send traffic to the other system sharing a VLAN

First host:

[lnevers@host2 ~]$ 

Step 8. Using root privileges on one of the VMs load a Kernel module.

Loading a kernel module is expected to not work on shared OpenVZ nodes, testing will proceed past this step.

Step 9. Run a netcat listener and bind to port XYZ on each of the VMs in the Utah rack

Modified test to use iperf. Started iperf server on host2:

[lnevers@host2 ~]$ /usr/bin/iperf -s

Step 10. Send traffic to port XYZ on each of the VMs in the Utah rack over the control network from any commodity Internet host

Started iperf on host1 to send to host2, with the following results:

On host1:

[lnevers@host1 ~]$ /usr/bin/iperf -c 10.10.1.2
------------------------------------------------------------
Client connecting to 10.10.1.2, TCP port 5001
TCP window size: 16.0 KByte (default)
------------------------------------------------------------
[  3] local 10.10.1.1 port 42950 connected with 10.10.1.2 port 5001
[ ID] Interval       Transfer     Bandwidth
[  3]  0.0-10.0 sec   116 MBytes  97.5 Mbits/sec

On host2:

[lnevers@host2 ~]$ /usr/bin/iperf -s
------------------------------------------------------------
Server listening on TCP port 5001
TCP window size: 85.3 KByte (default)
------------------------------------------------------------
[  4] local 10.10.1.2 port 5001 connected with 10.10.1.1 port 42950
[ ID] Interval       Transfer     Bandwidth
[  4]  0.0-10.2 sec   116 MBytes  95.7 Mbits/sec

Step 11. As Experimenter2, request ListResources from Utah InstaGENI

As experimenter lnevers1@bbn.com requested the list of available resources as follows:

 $ ./src/omni.py -a insta-utah listresources --available --api-version 2 -t GENI 3 --available -o

Step 12. Define a request RSpec for two physical nodes, both using the uploaded GPO Ubuntu images

Created a 2 raw-pc RSpec using the Customized OS image. Add RSpec link to add here.

Step 13. Create the second slice

The following command was used:

 $ ./src/omni.py createslice lnubuntu12b

Step 14. Create a sliver in the second slice, using the RSpec defined in step 12

The following commands were used to create the sliver and determine the host assignement:

 $ ./src/omni.py createsliver -a insta-utah --api-version 2 -t GENI 3 lnubuntu12b ./instarspec/insta-2rawpc-ubuntu12.rspec 
 $ ./src/omni.py sliverstatus -a insta-utah --api-version 2 -t GENI 3 lnubuntu12b -o
 $ egrep "hostname|port" lnubuntu12b-sliverstatus-boss-utah-geniracks-net-protogeni-xmlrpc-am-2-0.json

Step 15. Log in to each of the systems, and send traffic to the other system

Logged in to the first assigned host:

Step 18. Verify that each VM has a distinct MAC address for that interface

On the first host:

hosty:~% ifconfig -a|grep HW
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e8:39:35:b1:0f:94  
eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e8:39:35:b1:0f:96  
eth2      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e8:39:35:b1:0f:64  
eth3      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e8:39:35:b1:0f:66  

On the second host:

hostx:~% ifconfig -a|grep HW
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e8:39:35:b1:ec:9c  
eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e8:39:35:b1:ec:9e  
eth2      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e8:39:35:b1:ec:d0  
eth3      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e8:39:35:b1:ec:d2  

Step 19. Verify that VMs' MAC addresses are learned on the data plane switch
