Here’s the latest round-up of RDO- and OpenStack- related blogposts from the community. Thanks to all who continue to produce this great content! Keep calm and reboot: Patching recent exploits in a production cloud by Tim Bell At CERN, we have around 8,500 hypervisors running 36,000 guest virtual machines. With the accelerator stopping over the CERN annual closure until mid March,… Read more →
The upcoming version of Zuul has many new features that allow one to create powerful continuous integration and continuous deployment pipelines. This article presents some mechanisms to create such pipelines. As a practical example, I demonstrate the Software Factory project development workflow we use to continously build, test and deliver rpm packages through code review. Build job The first stage of this… Read more →
Reposted from email@example.com 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.

If you’ve missed out on some of the great RDO Community content over the past few weeks while you were on holiday, not to worry. I’ve gathered the recent blogposts right here for you. Without further ado… New TripleO quickstart cheatsheet by Carlos Camacho I have created some cheatsheets for people starting to work on TripleO, mostly to help them to… 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.
Here I’d like to give a summary of the Sydney OpenStack Summit docs sessions that I took part in, and share my comments on them with the broader OpenStack community. Docs project update At this session, we discussed a recent major refocus of the Documentation project work and restructuring of the OpenStack official documentation. This included migrating documentation from the… Read more →
It’s been a little while since we’ve posted a roundup of blogposts around RDO, and you all have been rather prolific in the past month! Here’s what we as a community have been talking about: Hooroo! Australia bids farewell to incredible OpenStack Summit by August Simonelli, Technical Marketing Manager, Cloud We have reached the end of another successful and exciting… Read more →
Skydive is “an open source real-time network topology and protocols analyzer”. It is a tool (with CLI and web interface) to help analyze and debug your network (OpenStack, OpenShift, containers, …). The Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) is a set of data plane libraries and network interface controller drivers for fast packet processing. http://dpdk.org/ As Skydive uses flow probes to… Read more →
Continous Integration jobs can generate a lot of data and it can take a lot of time to figure out what went wrong when a job fails. This article demonstrates new strategies to assist with failure investigations and to reduce the need to crawl boring log files. First, I will introduce the challenge of anomaly detection in CI logs. Second,… Read more →
