ONAP Maturity Testing Notes¶
For the El Alto release, ONAP continues to improve in multiple areas of Scalability, Security, Stability and Performance (S3P) metrics.
** TODO **
Integration Stability Testing verifies that the ONAP platform remains fully functional after running for an extended amounts of time. This is done by repeated running tests against an ONAP instance for a period of 72 hours.
The Stability Test has two main components:
- Running “ete stability72hr” Robot suite periodically. This test suite verifies that ONAP can instantiate vDNS, vFWCL, and VVG.
- Set up vFW Closed Loop to remain running, then check periodically that the closed loop functionality is still working.
Results: 100% PASS¶
|Test Case||Attempts||Env Issues||Failures||Successes||Pass Rate|
|Stability 72 hours||72||34||0||38||100%|
|vFW Closed Loop||75||7||0||68||100%|

- Overall results were good. All of the test failures were due to issues with the unstable environment and tooling framework.
- JIRAs were created for readiness/liveness probe issues found while testing under the unstable environment. Patches applied to oom and testsuite during the testing helped reduce test failures due to environment and tooling framework issues.
- The vFW Closed Loop test was very stable and self recovered from environment issues.
Integration Resilience Testing verifies that ONAP can automatically recover from failures of any of its components. This is done by deleting the ONAP pods that are involved in each particular Use Case flow and then checking that the Use Case flow can again be executed successfully after ONAP recovers.
For each Use Case, a list of the ONAP components involved is identified. The pods of each of those components are systematically deleted one-by-one; after each pod deletion, we wait for the pods to recover, then execute the Use Case again to verify successful ONAP platform recovery.
Results: 99.4% PASS¶
|Use Case||Attempts||Env Issues||Failures||Successes||Pass Rate|
|VNF Onboarding and Distribution||49||0||0||49||100%|
|vFW Closed Loop||66||0||0||66||100%|

Smaller ONAP container images footprint reduces resource consumption, time to deploy, time to heal, as well as scale out resources.
Minimizing the footprint of ONAP container images reduces resource consumption, time to deploy, time and time to heal. It also reduces the resources needed to scale out and time to scale in. For those reasons footprint minimization postively impacts the scalability of the ONAP platform. Smaller ONAP container images footprint reduces resource consumption, time to deploy, time to heal, as well as scale out resources.
