Test Plan Steps

Step 1. Set up experiments

An experimenter starts up experiments to ensure there is data to look at:

  • An experimenter runs an experiment containing at least one rack OpenStack VM, and terminates it.
  • An experimenter runs an experiment containing at least one rack OpenStack VM, and leaves it running.

One experiment was set up named "stitchOF" which included 1VM at Clemson using a stitched path to GPO IG and running OpenFlow.

gram@clemson-clemson-control-1:~$ nova list --all-tenants
| ID                                   | Name    | Status | Networks                                       |
| e4b5ce2c-ea78-4e39-acbe-1157af2e458d | gr-clem | ACTIVE | linkOF=; GRAM-mgmt-net= |
gram@clemson-clemson-control-1:~$ keystone tenant-list
|                id                |                name                | enabled |
| 89a03e397f8b4743be8d6c0c470e9ede |               admin                |   True  |
| 65c073cb3f83446eb400d76013f71bc0 | |   True  |
| 32b79311d95b4483a6d40a6db316fa3f |              service               |   True  |

Step 2. Administrator reviews active and historical experiment data

A site administrator uses available system and experiment data sources to determine current experimental state, including:

  • How many VMs are running and which experimenters own them
  • How many physical hosts are in use by experiments, and which experimenters own them
  • How many VMs were terminated within the past day, and which experimenters owned them
  • What OpenFlow controllers the data plane switch and the rack VMOC are communicating with

On the Control Node in the directory /etc/gram/snapshots/gram, review the snapshot for the time frame when the experiment was run and verify an entry for the sliver created at the beginning of this test.

It is possible also possible to get information directly from the VMOC controller about the active experiments:

gram@clemson-clemson-control-1:~$ echo "dump" |nc localhost 7001 
      <vmoc.VMOCSwitchConnection.VMOCSwitchConnection object at 0x2e7bfd0>
     <vmoc.VMOCSwitchConnection.VMOCSwitchConnection object at 0x2e7bfd0>
   Switches (by Controller):
   Controllers (by VLAN) 
VMOC Slice Registry: {'vlan_configurations': [{'vlan': 3007, 'controller_url': u'tcp:'}], 'slice_id': u''} {'vlan_configurations': [], 'slice_id': u''}
    {'vlan_configurations': [{'vlan': 3007, 'controller_url': u'tcp:'}], 'slice_id': u''}
 3007: {'vlan_configurations': [{'vlan': 3007, 'controller_url': u'tcp:'}], 'slice_id': u''}

Step 3. Administrator reviews network data

A site administrator examines the switches and other rack data sources, and determines:

  • What MAC addresses are currently visible on the data plane switch and what experiments do they belong to?
  • For some experiment which was terminated within the past day, what data plane and control MAC and IP addresses did the experiment use?
  • For some experimental data path which is actively sending traffic on the data plane switch, do changes in interface counters show approximately the expected amount of traffic into and out of the switch?

All required information is available to determine VMs used and in use in the snapshots. Also snapshot capture "mac_address", IP addresses and experimenter information for each VM allocated. Information found is sufficient.

One example experiment OG-EXP-2-exp1 has two nodes running, login to the first node and get MAC:

$ ssh -p 3000  -i /home/lnevers/.ssh/geni_cert_portal_key lnevers@
lnevers@vm-1:~$ /sbin/ifconfig
eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr fa:16:3e:ce:9d:16  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask: 

Second node in experiment:

$ ssh -p 3001  -i /home/lnevers/.ssh/geni_cert_portal_key lnevers@
lnevers@gr-clem:~$ /sbin/ifconfig 
eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr fa:16:3e:f0:67:4b  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

Switches information shows that counters and MAC addresses for those nodes in use. For the PowerConnect 7048 switch:

gram@clemson-clemson-control-1:~$ ssh lnevers@
lnevers@'s password:

The way to map an experiment to a slice is to look for the MAC address in the snapshot file. For this particular experiment the file /etc/gram/snapshots/gram/2014_04_23_13_18_13_0.json was reviewed and was able to map both MAC addresses back to the slice. There is a tool to dump the information in the snapshots to an easy to read version, but it is currently not working. If it was working, one would simply issue the following command on the control node:

$python /etc/gram/ --directory ./output/ --snapshot /etc/gram/snapshots/gram/2014_04_23_09_59_49_0.json
