Tobiko is an OpenStack testing framework focusing on areas mostly
complementary to `Tempest <https://docs.openstack.org/tempest/latest/>`__.
While tempest main focus has been testing OpenStack rest APIs, the main Tobiko
focus would be to test OpenStack system operations while "simulating"
focus is to test OpenStack system operations while "simulating"
the use of the cloud as the final user would.
Tobiko's test cases populate the cloud with workloads such as instances, allows
the CI workflow to perform an operation such as an update or upgrade, and then
runs test cases to validate that the cloud workloads are still functional.
Tobiko's test cases populate the cloud with workloads such as Nova instances;
they execute disruption operations such as services/nodes restart; finally they
run test cases to validate that the cloud workloads are still functional.
Tobiko's test cases can also be used, for example, for testing that previously
created workloads are working right after OpenStack services update/upgrade
operation.

and below Linux distributions:
- CentOS 7 (with Python 3.6 and 3.8)
- CentOS 7 / RHEL 7 (with Python 3.6)
- CentOS 8 / RHEL 8 (with Python 3.6)
- Ubuntu Bionic (with Python 3.6 and 3.7)
The framework is being used for executing test cases. As Tobiko can be executed
on nodes that are not part of the cloud to test against, this doesn't mean
Tobiko requires cloud nodes have to run with one of tested Python versions
or Linux distributions.
Tobiko is also tested for development purposes with below OSes:
- Fedora 31 (with Python 3.7)
- Fedora 32 (with Python 3.8)
- OSX (with Python 3.8)
- Ubuntu Focal (with Python 3.8)

Main Project Goals
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- To provide a Python framework to write system scenario test cases.
- To provide tools for testing OpenStack system operations like update,
upgrades and fast forward upgrade.
- To provide CLI tools to implement a workflow designed to test potentially
destructive operations (like rebooting cloud nodes, restarting services
or others kinds of fault injections).
- To test OpenStakc and Red Hat OpenStack Platform projects before they are
released.
- To provide a Python framework to write system scenario test cases (create
and test workloads), to write white boxing test cases (to log to cloud nodes
for internal inspection purpose), to write disruptive test cases (to simulate
service disruptions like for example rebooting/interrupting a service to
verify cloud reliability).
- To provide Ansible roles to implement a work-flow designed to run an ordered
sequence of test cases groups (like for example tests that creates resources
and verify they are working, tests that execute cloud disruptions, and finally
tests that verify if resources initially created are still working). The main
use of these roles is writing continuous integration jobs for Zuul (via bare
Ansible roles) or other services like Jenkins (via the InfraRed plug-in).
- To verify previously created workloads are working fine after executing
OpenStack nodes update/upgrade.
- To provide tools to monitor and recollect the healthy status of the cloud as
seen from user perspective (black-box testing) or from inside (white-box
testing).
