Owner

  • Email: steved@redhat.com

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 19
  • Last updated: 27 November 2012
  • Percentage of completion: 100%


Detailed Description

NFStest provides a set of tools for testing either the NFS client or the NFS server, including the framework for developing more tests. These tools include the following:

  • Process command line arguments
  • Provide functionality for PASS/FAIL
  • Provide test grouping functionality
  • Provide multiple client support
  • Logging mechanism
  • Debug info control
  • Mount/Unmount control
  • Create files/directories
  • Provide mechanism to start a packet trace
  • Provide mechanism to simulate a network partition
  • Support for pNFS testing
  • Provide mechanism to automate packet trace inspection

Benefit to Fedora

The inclusion of nfstest benefits Fedora by providing customers with a tool to test NFS functionality and a development platform for creating new NFS tests. It is our hope this will increase adoption of NFSv4 and pNFS.

Scope

At this point, all of the development is done. The scope of change that will affect the over all distribution is very small. NFStest is a standalone package for testing NFS functionality.

How To Test

There is no special hardware or data needed to test NFStest.

User Experience

Users may use NFStest to check the functionality of their NFS environment.

Dependencies

python > 2.6

Contingency Plan

No contingency plan is necessary. All the development is done.
