GRAM Intermediate Acceptance Test Report - April 2014

This pages captures the findings for each of the test cases in the GRAM Acceptance Test Plan?. Status for the current evaluation can be found in the GRAM Acceptance Test Status - April 2014? page. As can be seen from the page there has been significant improvement since the last evaluation results captured in the Acceptance Test Report - December 2013?. Also many tickets reported in earlier evaluation have been successfully addressed. Following is a list of the most critical issues as of 2014-05-19:

  • ticket 123 - GRAM rack Dell Switches require that ETH_Typer is wild carded on flow mods
  • ticket 122 - Poor performance to remote IG with OpenFlow over stitched connection
  • ticket 121 - Need OpenFlow Campus Resources connected to Clemson rack
  • ticket 119 - Longer project and slice names causes GRAM internal error for OpenStack
  • ticket 110 - No bandwidth shaping available on GRAM nodes
  • ticket 107 - mismatch in VLAN allocation VS reported in sliver manifest
  • ticket 103 - Tools listinst.sh and vmlist.sh return no information when there are active VMs
  • ticket 94 - Deleting sliver that does not exist at the GRAM aggregate does not return error
  • ticket 93 - Five VM sliver manifest has unexpected format and does not pass rspec lint.
  • ticket 92 - Createsliver does not return after accepting requests, seems to return when request completed.

Experimenter Acceptance Tests

GR-EXP-1: Bare Metal Support Acceptance Test

This test case was deemed "Fail" due to the fact that there is still no supported for bare metal nodes and there is no support for windows. Modified the test case to replace all dedicated nodes (aka bare metal) with VMs to get test coverage.Issues captured in tickets:

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

GR-EXP-2: GRAM Single Site Acceptance Test

This test was deemed "Pass". No issues were found.

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

This test was deemed "Pass: most criteria". No problems were found, but only two scenario were tested due to lack of time.

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

  • ticket 110 - No bandwidth shaping available on GRAM nodes

GR-EXP-5: GRAM Network Resources Acceptance Test

  • ticket 121 - Need OpenFlow Campus Resources connected to Clemson rack

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

GR-EXP-7: Click Router Experiment Acceptance Test

This layer two test was not attempted during this test effort.

Administration Acceptance Tests

GR-ADM-1: Rack Receipt and Inventory Test

This test was deemed "Completed" and needing further testing because there was no rack delivery process and there is no GMOC monitoring:

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

GR-ADM-3: Full Rack Reboot Test

This test was run successfully and using existing documentation was able to complete a full reboot and have the aggregate running and available upon test completion.

GR-ADM-4: Emergency Stop Test

This test was not run because it requires GMOC interactions and monitoring, neither of which are available at this time for the GRAM Racks at Clemson.

GR-ADM-5: Software Update Test

This test was run without any problem, GRAM software packages was installed as part of an upgrade.

GR-ADM-6: Control Network Disconnection Test

This test was not run because it requires GMOC interactions and monitoring, neither of which are available at this time for the GRAM Racks at Clemson.
