Yardstick Test Case Description TC027ΒΆ

IPv6 connectivity between nodes on the tenant network
test case id OPNFV_YARDSTICK_TC002_IPv6 connectivity
metric RTT, Round Trip Time
test purpose To do a basic verification that IPv6 connectivity is within acceptable boundaries when ipv6 packets travel between hosts located on same or different compute blades. The purpose is also to be able to spot trends. Test results, graphs and similar shall be stored for comparison reasons and product evolution understanding between different OPNFV versions and/or configurations.

file: opnfv_yardstick_tc027.yaml

Packet size 56 bytes. SLA RTT is set to maximum 10 ms.

test tool


Ping6 is normally part of Linux distribution, hence it doesn’t need to be installed.




applicability Test case can be configured with different run step you can run setup, run benchmakr, teardown independently SLA is optional. The SLA in this test case serves as an example. Considerably lower RTT is expected.
pre-test conditions

The test case image needs to be installed into Glance with ping6 included in it.

No POD specific requirements have been identified.

test sequence description and expected result
step 1

The hosts are installed, as server and client. Ping is invoked and logs are produced and stored.

Result: Logs are stored.

test verdict Test should not PASS if any RTT is above the optional SLA value, or if there is a test case execution problem.
