Convention for heading levels in Neutron devref:
======= Heading 0 (reserved for the title in a document)
------- Heading 1
~~~~~~~ Heading 2
+++++++ Heading 3
''''''' Heading 4
(Avoid deeper levels because they do not render well.)
Test Coverage
=============
The intention is to track merged features or areas of code that lack certain
types of tests. This document may be used both by developers that want to
contribute tests, and operators that are considering adopting a feature.
Coverage
--------
Note that while both API and scenario tests target a deployed OpenStack cloud,
API tests are under the Neutron tree and scenario tests are under the Tempest
tree.
It is the expectation that API changes involve API tests, agent features
or modifications involve functional tests, and Neutron-wide features involve
fullstack or scenario tests as appropriate.
The table references tests that explicitly target a feature, and not a job
that is configured to run against a specific backend (Thereby testing it
implicitly). So, for example, while the Linux bridge agent has a job that runs
the API and scenario tests with the Linux bridge agent configured, it does not
have functional tests that target the agent explicitly. The 'gate' column
is about running API/scenario tests with Neutron configured in a certain way,
such as what L2 agent to use or what type of routers to create.

* DVR DB unit tests often assert that internal methods were called instead of
testing functionality. A lot of our unit tests are flawed in this way,
and DVR unit tests especially so. An attempt to remedy this was made
in patch 178880.
* OVS ARP responder cannot be tested at the gate because the gate uses Ubuntu
14.04 that only packages OVS 2.0. OVS added ARP manipulation support in
version 2.1.
Missing Infrastructure
----------------------
The following section details missing test *types*. If you want to pick up
an action item, please contact amuller for more context and guidance.
* The Neutron team would like Rally to persist results over a window of time,
graph and visualize this data, so that reviewers could compare average runs
against a proposed patch.
* It's possible to test RPC methods via the unit tests infrastructure. This was
proposed in patch 162811. The goal is provide developers a light weight
way to rapidly run tests that target the RPC layer, so that a patch that
modifies an RPC method's signature could be verified quickly and locally.
* Neutron currently does not test an in-place upgrade (Upgrading the server
first, followed by agents one machine at a time). We make sure that the RPC
layer remains backwards compatible manually via the review process but have
no CI that verifies this.
