OpenStack testing tools
With the rapid expansion of OpenStack, a variety of tools have emerged
for testing different aspects of OpenStack. However there is
currently no unified solution that can test availability, reliability,
performance, and scalability of OpenStack infrastructure.
The aim of this SIG is to create self-healing infrastructure, and in
order to move in to that direction there is a need for an automated
destructive/extreme testing framework for OpenStack infrastructure.
As there have already been several projects tackling various parts of
the challenge, one goal is to avoid duplication of effort and see how
we can take advantage of these already developed tools and come up
with a unified solution.
Here is list of tools and the testing features that are provided by
those (as of August 2019):

.. [#] Commits per month: Low<5, Medium<15, High=>15, NA=No Activity
.. _Rally:
`Rally <>`__
- Deployment of OpenStack
- Verification of deployment
- Benchmarking: Simulate real user load
- Profiler for scaling and performance issues
- Report generation: Processing and aggregation of results
De-facto control plane performance testing, allows to create different
kind of tests including functional, concurrency, regression, load, scale
capacity and chaos testing.
.. _Yardstick:
`Yardstick <>`__
- Deployment
- Run compute, storage, network test scenarios using a runner
- Report generation with the following metrics:
- Performance/Speed
- Capacity/Scale
- Availability/Reliability
Inspired by Rally, was developed mainly from the prespective of
VNF(Virtual Network Function), but is a generic framework for testing
scenarios in OpenStack for performance, scalability and
.. _Tempest:
`Tempest <>`__
- Integration testing for live OpenStack
- Test OpenStack publicly available API and scenarios that demonstrate
a working cloud
- Load testing possible as well
Mainly used for integration testing but non-functional testing
possible as well.
.. _Shaker:
`Shaker <>`__
- Deploy instances and network in different topologies or network
configurations using Heat
- Run network related test scenarios
- Report generation
Network load generation, testing and benchmarking. Based on 'iperf(3)'
and 'netperf' -> network testing topologies
.. _OS-Faults:
`OS-Faults <>`__
- Library for initiating or terminating service/node/container/network
as a way for introducing fault injections.
- Allows for both hardware and software level faults
Used by Rally to introduce faults.
.. _KloudBuster:
`KloudBuster <>`__
- Benchmarking of data plane and storage services in OpenStack
A fully integrated framework which is easy to use with basic knowledge
of OpenStack but isn't flexible or programmable to do everything.
.. _HA-Failure-Test:
`HA-Failure-Test <>`__
- High Availability testing of OpenStack components
- Set of Tempest scripts to test HA of components in HA cluster.
- Stop service(s), perform sanity and verify
.. _Cloud99:
`Cloud99 <>`__
- Monintoring: Nodes and services
- Disruptions: in services, node, containers can be parallel,
sequential or round robin
- Runner: Perform actual tests with disruptions
- All 3 runs as seperate threads and parallel
Makes use of Rally runner
.. _Browbeat:
`Browbeat <>`__
- Performance and scalability testing
- Create Rally work loads
- Run Shaker for network configuration, benchmarking and testing
- CI and deployment: Can be used for CI or deploying data analysis
.. _Harbinger:
`Harbinger <>`__
- Manager for data plane testing frameworks in OpenStack
- Can similtaneously execute multiple testing frameworks (Shaker,
.. _Enos:
`Enos <>`__
- Deployment of OpenStack on VMs or bare metal
- Setup with different configurations
- Benchmarking:
- Rally scenario for control plane
- Shaker scenario of data plane
- Report generation: Get metrics/reports in Grafana
.. _Chaostoolkit-openstack:
`chaostoolkit-openstack <>`__
- Driver to perform set of actions and probes.
A minimal chaostoolkit driver for OpenStack compute resources.
.. _Jepsen:
`Jepsen <>`__
- Introduction of disruptions/faults
- Testing
- Report generation
- Checkers for analyzing history
Not specific to OpenStack but general library for distributed systems,
written in Clojure
.. _OPNFV-Doctor:
`OPNFV Doctor <>`__
- Fault management and maintenance in VIM(Virtualized Infrastructure
Manager) e.g OpenStack
- Fault monitoring (Hardware, Hypervisor, Host OS faults)
- Fault notification
- Failure recovery (Switch to STBY config.)
.. _Stepler:
`Stepler <>`__
- Destructive testing
- Test the availability of OpenStack cluster incase of node/service
Make use of os-faults
.. _NFVbench:
`NFVbench <>`__
