Results are grouped by major area including: Experimenter, Administrative and Monitoring Acceptance tests. Status for the current evaluation can be found in the GRAM Acceptance Test Status - April 2014? page. Once again there has been significant improvement since the last evaluation results captured in the Acceptance Test Report - December 2013. Most tickets reported in earlier evaluation have been successfully addressed.

Experimenter Acceptance Tests

Test case fails due to lack of supported for bare metal nodes and for Windows OS. Test Case Tickets:

  • 51 Bare metal support feature is missing for GR-EXP-1
  • 70 MS Windows support requires handling of account setup in GRAM

GR-EXP-2: GRAM Single Site Acceptance Test

Test Case Status: "Pass: most criteria"

This test uses resources in one GRAM resources and it was successfully executed. Test Case Tickets:

  • 104 Sliverstatus is inaccurate and nodes are shown as ready while they are not ready for use.
  • 106 There is an unexplained 6% packet loss with 1 pkt/sec traffic.
  • 110 There is no bandwidth shaping, experimenter specified capacity is ignored.

GR-EXP-3: GRAM Single Site 100 VM Test

Test Case Status: "Pass: most criteria"

This limits test case verified the ability to request 100 VMs. No problems were found, but only two scenario have been tested:

  • Fifty slices with 2 VMs each
  • Twenty slices with 5 VMs each

GR-EXP-4: GRAM Multi-site Acceptance Test

Test Case Status: "Pass".

GENI Network stitching was used to set up connection to InstaGENI and ExoGENI racks. Various topologies were tested, although could not try multi-point scenario becuase it is not yet supported by GENI Network Stitching. Test Case Tickets:

  • 106 There is an unexplained 6% packet loss with 1 pkt/sec traffic.
  • 110 There is no bandwidth shaping, experimenter specified capacity is ignored.

GR-EXP-5: GRAM Network Resources Acceptance Test

This test has not been executed yet, need site resources to be added to Clemson rack OpenFlow switch.

GR-EXP-6: GRAM and Meso-scale Multi-site OpenFlow Acceptance Test

Test Case Status: "In Progress".

This test case status is being executed with local OpenFlow connections and over stitched OpenFlow connections to InstaGENI sites. There is no testing with ExoGENI due to a bug in ExoGENI code that prevents user from specifying an OpenFlow Controller. OpenFlow controllers used successfully VMOC (patched POX) and FloodLight. Test Case Tickets:

  • 114 GRAM OpenFlow handshake failure with POX experimenter controllers - POX requires patching

GR-EXP-7: Click Router Experiment Acceptance Test

This test is not planned at this time.

Administration Acceptance Tests

GR-ADM-1: Rack Receipt and Inventory Test

Test Case Status: "In Progress".

Most of this test cannot be completed at BBN, there was no rack delivery process and there is no GMOC monitoring:

  • 49 There is no GMOC data collection or GRAM monitoring data reporting

GR-ADM-2: Rack Administrator Access Test

Test Case Status: "In Progress"

Waiting on Admin account creation procedure execution in Clemson rack. Remote Console access is to be verified:

  • 65 Remote console not available via web interface, some iDRAC access via SSH.

Test Case Status: "Pass".

This test was executed and verified full rack power down and power up, along with process health at bootup. No issues remain.

GR-ADM-4: Emergency Stop Test

This test is not planned at this time because it requires requires GMOC interaction and monitoring. Without monitoring GMOC cannot participate in an emergency exercise:

  • 49 There is no GMOC data collection or GRAM monitoring data reporting
