GRAM Documentation Tests

The GRAM 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. GRAM 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 GRAM 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. GRAM Rack Part List Documentation

The goal of this evaluation:

To find a summary GRAM 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

A parts list was found in the page Details on BBN-CAM GRAM Rack Installation and Configuration. 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. GRAM 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. GRAM and OS Upgrade Plans

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that explains how and when GRAM 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: In Progress

Found software update information in:

  • GRAM Installation Guide with OpenStack Grizzly includes:
    • Configuration Overview
    • Network Configuration for OpenFlow Switch for the Data Network and for Management Switch
    • GRAM and OpenStack Installation and Configuration
    • Testing GRAM installation
    • Debugging Notes

In Progress

  • Updates being implemented for package update, only first time install available at this time

Not Found:

  • Notification process for updates
  • Security updates plans

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

The goal of this evaluation:

Find documentation that provides a description of the GRAM 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:

6. GRAM 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: Fail

Did not find any Resources Usage and Policy documents.

7. GRAM 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.

8. GRAM 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: most criteria

Found:

  • Rack Admin Accounts page includes instructions for adding and removing administrative users on the control and compute nodes.

Not Found:

  • Rack Admin Accounts page does not includes instructions for Administrative access to switches and to the dRAC console.

9. GRAM 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: Fail

No procedure was found for changing IP addresses for all rack components.

10. GRAM 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: In Progress

Found:

Was not able to verify, expect to execute GR-ADM-3: Full Rack Reboot Test which will allow verification of the procedure.

11. GRAM 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 GR-ADM-4: Emergency Stop Test in order to verify content of procedure.

12. GRAM 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: Fail

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

13. GRAM 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 GRAM 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: Fail

  1. Found a part list, but no part numbers. Power requirements are available here, there are no inventory of which equipment connects to which PDU.
  2. Items in item 2 not found.
  3. Items in item 3 not found
  4. Items in item 4 not found
