OpenGENI Documentation Tests

The OpenGENI Documentation Tests focus on documentation review, and apply the following criteria for each document:

  • The document has been provided in a public location. This criteria failed to be met, all documentation is internal for initial evaluation.
  • The document contains the required information.
  • The documented information appears to be accurate.

Rack documentation available and reviewed to find required information includes:

1. OpenGENI Rack Installation Documentation

The goal of this evaluation:

To find pre-installation document that lists specific minimum requirements for all site-provided services for potential rack sites (e.g. space, number and type of power plugs, number and type of power circuits, cooling load, public addresses, NLR or Internet2 layer2 connections, etc.). This document should also list all standard expected rack interfaces (e.g. 10GBE links to at least one research network).

Evaluation Results: Pass: most criteria

The page Details on BBN-CAM OpenGENI Rack Installation and Configuration and found:

  • Rack space requirements
  • Power requirements
  • Network and Hardware Configuration
  • Cooling requirements

Not found:

  • Although public IP addresses are listed in the initial topology captured on this page, there is no indication of the minimum required number of public address for rack components and for experiment usage.
  • Core backbone connectivity requirements (layer2).

2. OpenGENI Rack Part List Documentation

The goal of this evaluation:

To find a summary OpenGENI Rack parts list, including vendor part numbers for "standard" equipment intended for all sites (e.g. a VM server) and per-site equipment options (e.g. transceivers, PDUs etc.), if any. This document should also indicate approximately how much headroom, if any, remains in the standard rack PDUs' power budget to support other equipment that sites may add to the rack.

Evaluation Results: Pass: most criteria

Not found:

  • Document that indicates approximately how much headroom, if any, remains in the standard rack PDUs' power budget to support additional equipment added by site to the rack.

3. OpenGENI Software Components Identification Documentation

The goal of this evaluation:

Find a procedure for identifying the software versions and system file configurations running on a rack, and how to get information about recent changes to the rack software and configuration. Evaluation Results: Pass

Found:

4. OpenGENI and OS Upgrade Plans

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that explains how and when OpenGENI software and OS updates can be performed on a rack, including plans for notification and update if important security vulnerabilities in rack software are discovered.

Evaluation Results: Pass

Found software update information in:

Not Found:

  • Notification process for updates
  • Security updates plans

Documentation is to be moved to external wiki.

5. OpenGENI Software Components Functional Description and Access to Source code

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that provides a description of the OpenGENI software running on a standard rack, and explanation of how to get access to the source code of each piece of standard GENI software.

Evaluation Results: Pass

Found:

Need to be moved to external wiki.

6. OpenGENI Rack Resources Usage and Policy Documentation

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that provides a description of all the GENI experimental resources within the rack, and what policy options exist for each, including: how to configure rack nodes as bare metal vs. VM server, what options exist for configuring automated approval of compute and network resource requests and how to set them, how to configure rack aggregates to trust additional GENI slice authorities, and whether it is possible to trust local users within the rack.

Evaluation Results: In Progress

Document was being written, but requested changes were not implemented.

7. OpenGENI Rack Resources Administration

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that provides a description of the expected state of all the GENI experimental resources in the rack, including how to determine the state of an experimental resource and what state is expected for an unallocated bare metal node.

Evaluation Results: Pass: most criteria

Found:

Did not find:

  • documentation that would give an administrator a description of the expected state of all the GENI experimental resources in the rack.

All the above need to be moved to external location.

8. OpenGENI Rack Administrative procedure for user accounts

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that provides a procedure for creating new site administrator and operator accounts.

Evaluation Results: Pass

Found:

9. OpenGENI Rack Administrative procedure for rack operations

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that provides a procedure for changing IP addresses for all rack components.

Evaluation Results:Pass

Procedure verified.

10. OpenGENI Rack Administrative procedure for rack scheduled shutdown

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that provides a procedure for cleanly shutting down an entire rack in case of a scheduled site outage.

Evaluation Results: Pass

Found:

Was able to execute OG-ADM-3: Full Rack Reboot Test and verify the procedure.

11. OpenGENI Rack Administrative procedure for Emergency Stop.

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that provides a procedure for performing a shutdown operation on any type of sliver on a rack, in support of an Emergency Stop request.

Evaluation Results: In Progress

Found:

Was unable to verify, expect to execute OG-ADM-4: Emergency Stop Test in order to verify content of procedure.

12. OpenGENI Rack Administrative procedure for health status

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that provides a procedure for performing comprehensive health checks for a rack (or, if those health checks are being run automatically, how to view the current/recent results).

Evaluation Results: Pass

No documentation exist that defines how to monitor OpenGENI component health. Found healthcheck.py but there is no documentation for it.????

13. OpenGENI Rack Site Operations documentation

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that provides a Technical plan for handing off primary rack operations to site operators at all sites.

Evaluation Results: Fail

No documentation found.

14. Site Specific OpenGENI Deployment Data

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that provides Per-site deployment details/documentation. This documentation should be prepared before sites are installed and kept updated after installation to reflect any changes or upgrades after delivery. Text, network diagrams, wiring diagrams and labeled photos are all acceptable for site documents. Per-site documentation should include the following items for each site:

  1. Part numbers and quantities of PDUs, with NEMA input power connector types, and an inventory of which equipment connects to which PDU.
  2. Physical network interfaces for each control and data plane port that connects to the site's existing network(s), including type, part numbers, maximum speed etc. (eg. 10-GB-SR fiber)
  3. Public IP addresses allocated to the rack, including: number of distinct IP ranges and size of each range, hostname to IP mappings which should be placed in site DNS, whether the last-hop routers for public IP ranges subnets sit within the rack or elsewhere on the site, and what firewall configuration is desired for the control network.
  4. Data plane network connectivity and procedures for each rack, including core backbone connectivity and documentation, switch configuration options to set for compatibility with the L2 core, and the site and rack procedures for connecting non-rack-controlled VLANs and resources to the rack data plane. A network diagram is highly recommended (See existing OpenFlow meso-scale network diagrams on the GENI wiki for examples.)

Evaluation Results: Pass

The information required for the site specific information exists internally at this time at:
