Testing Nodepool

A Quickstart

This is designed to be enough information for you to run your first tests on an Ubuntu 16.04 (or later) host.

Install pip:

sudo apt-get install python3-pip

More information on pip here:

Use pip to install tox:

sudo pip3 install tox

A running zookeeper is required to execute tests.

Install zookeeper:

sudo apt-get install zookeeperd

Start zookeeper:

sudo service zookeeper start

Run The Tests

Navigate to the project's root directory and execute:


Note: completing this command may take a long time (depends on system resources) also, you might not see any output until tox is complete.

Information about tox can be found here:

Run The Tests in One Environment

Tox will run your entire test suite in the environments specified in the project tox.ini:


envlist = <list of available environments>

To run the test suite in just one of the environments in envlist execute:

tox -e <env>

so for example, run the test suite in py35:

tox -e py35
