HT02 - Test Methodology for NFV

From NFVwiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Description

This Hot Topic has the following goals:

  • Validate and improve the Test Methodology guidelines and templates being described in TST002.
  • Contribute Interoperability Test Descriptions & guidelines to TST007.
  • Compile a collection of examples of the application of such guidelines and templates in the context in NFV PoCs : Systems Under Test configurations, Test Descriptions, etc,

These goals may be met in a PoC whose focus is testing, or as additional goals for a PoC primarily addressing another topic.

HT#2 (TST) Test Methodology for NFV

Status

ACTIVE

What is expected to be learnt from the NFV PoCs

Points to prove/refute

• For TST002 – Interoperability Test Methodology

  1. validate and suggest improvements for the Test Description template (section 4)
  2. identify the functions under test in the context of the PoC
  3. provide the list of interoperability features tested by the PoC, and the impacted entities (see analysis in the WIKI)
  4. Provide SUT configurations tested by the PoC Team following the guidelines in section 4. Identify the test interfaces (where actions are triggered and observed)
  5. provide descriptions (following the Test Description template) of interoperability features successfully tested by the PoC Team in a reproducible way

• For TST007 – VIM- VNFM Interoperability Testing Guidelines

  1. validate, suggest improvements and contribute additional Test Descriptions

Criterion of success

• Provide input and concrete examples to at least one of the 2 WIs (TST002 or TST007)

Other information

Provide feedback to other NFV Working Groups on the items that have been validated by the testing and/or the gaps identified in the specifications.

  • For TST002 - Interoperability Test methodology
  1. SUT configurations (as exercised by the POC)
  2. List of NFV IOP Features tested by the POC project
  3. IOP Test Descriptions (run by the POC, following TD template)
  4. Lessons learnt and suggestions for improvements in the methodologies

PoC Teams shall follow the HT#2-TST002 Feedback Template on their contributions to Hot Topic#2 - TST002

  • For TST007 - VIM-VNFM Interoperability Testing Guidelines
  1. SUT configurations (as exercised by the POC)
  2. List of NFV IOP Features tested by the POC project
  3. IOP Test Descriptions (run by the POC, following TD template)
  4. Lessons learnt and suggestions for improvements in the methodologies

PoC Teams shall follow the HT#2-TST007 Feedback Template on their contributions to Hot Topic#2 - TST007
