For those who are not familiar with the python-tempestconf, it’s a tool for generating a tempest configuration file, which is required for running Tempest tests against a live OpenStack cluster. It queries a cloud and automatically discovers cloud settings, which weren’t provided by a user. Internal project In August 2016 config_tempest tool was decoupled from Red Hat Tempest fork and… Read more →
Ian Y. Choi and I already shared a summary of docs and i18n updates from the Stein Project Teams Gathering with the openstack-dev mailing list, but I also wanted to post the updates here for wider distribution. So, here comes what I found the most interesting out of our docs- and i18n-related meetings and discussions we had in Denver from… Read more →
During the OpenStack Rocky release cycle a new OpenStack ML2 driver project was established: networking-ansible. This project integrates OpenStack with the Ansible Networking project. Ansible Networking is the part of the Ansible project that focuses on providing an Ansible interface for network operators to manage network switch configuration. By consuming Ansible Networking as the backend interface to network switch configuration… Read more →
I love birthday celebrations! They’re so full of joy and reminiscing of years gone by. Discussions of “I knew her when” or “Remember when he… ?” They have a tendency to bring separate communities of people together in unique and fun ways. And we all know how passionate I am about communities… So when Rain Leander suggested that I attend… Read more →
Who’s up for a rematch? Rocky Milestone 2 is here and we’re ready to rumble! Join us on June 14 & 15 (next Thursday and Friday) for an awesome time of taking down bugs and fighting errors in the most recent release. We won’t be pulling any punches. Want to get in on the action? We’re looking for developers, users,… Read more →
Tempest is the integration test suite used to validate any deployed OpenStack cloud. TripleO undercloud is the all-in-one OpenStack installation that includes components for provisioning and managing the OpenStack nodes that form your OpenStack environment (the overcloud). For validating undercloud using Tempest, Follow the below steps: Using tripleo-quickstart: Follow this link to provision a libvirt guest environment through tripleo-quickstart Deploy… Read more →
Unit tests are used to verify that individual units of source code work according to a defined spec. While this may sound complicated to understand, in short it means that we try to verify that each part of our source code works as expected, without having to run the full program they belong to. All OpenStack projects come with their… Read more →
Reposted from firstname.lastname@example.org post by David Moreau Simard We have historically been monitoring RDO’s infrastructure through Sensu and it has served us well to pre-emptively detect issues and maximize our uptime. At some point, Software Factory grew an implementation of Grafana, InfluxDB and Telegraf in order to monitor the health of the servers, not unlike how upstream’s openstack-infra leverages cacti. This implementation… Read more →
During the year of 2017, 10 contributors managed to merge 146 commits into rdopkg. 3771 lines of code were added and 1975 lines deleted across 107 files. 54 unit tests were added on top of existing 32 tests – an increase of 169 % to total of 86 unit tests. 33 scenarios for 5 core rdopkg features were added in new feature tests spanning total of 228 test steps. 3 minor releases increased version from 0.42 to 0.45.0. Let’s talk about the most significant improvements…. Read more →
It’s time for another round-up of the great content that’s circulating our community. But before we jump in, if you know of an OpenStack or RDO-focused blog that isn’t featured here, be sure to leave a comment below and we’ll add it to the list. ICYMI, here’s what has sparked the community’s attention this month, from Ansible to TripleO, emoji-rendering,… Read more →
Introduction Software Factory is an easy to deploy software development forge. It provides, among others features, code review and continuous integration (CI). The latest Software Factory release features Zuul V3 that provides integration with Github. In this blog post I will explain how to configure a Software Factory instance, so that you can experiment with gating Github repositories with Zuul.
In October, RDO had a small presence at the Open Source Summit (formerly known as LinuxCon) in Prague, Czechia. While this event does not traditionally draw a big OpenStack audience, we were treated to a great talk by Monty Taylor on Zuul, and Fatih Degirmenci gave an interesting talk on cross-community CI, in which he discussed the joint work between… Read more →
TL;DR: Live RDO cloud will be available for testing on upcoming test day. http://rdoproject.org/testday/queens/milestone2/ for more info. The last few test days have been somewhat lackluster, and have not had much participation. We think that there’s a number of reasons for this: Deploying OpenStack is hard and boring Not everyone has the necessary hardware to do it anyways Automated testing… Read more →
Introduction Software Factory 2.7 has been recently released. Software Factory is an easy to deploy software development forge that is deployed at review.rdoproject.org and softwarefactory-project.io. Software Factory provides, among other features, code review and continuous integration (CI). This new release features Zuul V3 that is, now, the default CI component of Software Factory. In this blog post I will explain… Read more →
While at OpenStack Summit, I had an opportunity to talk with Emilien Macchi about the work on TripleO in the Pike and Queens projects.
