Run OpenStack Tempest in openstack-ansible

It took me longer than I would like to admit to get tempest running in openstack-ansible, so here is how I did it, in the hopes I’ll remember (or that it will save someone else time).

Getting Started

This post assumes a relatively recent version of openstack-ansible. For this post, that is an Ocata all-in-one build (15.1.7 specifically). Log into the deployment node.

Installing Tempest

Before we can run tempest, we have to install it first. To install tempest, on the deployment node, run the following:

# cd /opt/openstack-ansible/playbooks
# openstack-ansible -vvvv os-tempest-install.yml

<<lots of output>>

PLAY RECAP *********************************************************************
aio1_utility_container-b81d907c : ok=68   changed=1    unreachable=0    failed=0

The prior command uses the openstack-ansible wrapper to pull in the appropriate variables for your openstack environment, and installs tempest.

Running tempest

To run tempest, log into the controller node (this being an AIO, it is the deployment node, controller, compute, etc). Then attach to the utility container:

# lxc-ls | grep utility


# lxc-attach --name aio1_utility_container-b81d907c
root@aio1-utility-container-b81d907c:~# ls

Once attached to the utility container, activate the tempest venv:

# cd /openstack/venvs/tempest-15.1.7
# source bin/activate

Once in the venv, we need to tell Tempest what workspace to use. Fortunately, the os-tempest-install playbook prepares a tempest ‘workspace’ for you. Lets move into that directory and launch our tempest tests:

(tempest-15.1.7) # cd /openstack/venvs/tempest-15.1.7/workspace
(tempest-15.1.7) # tempest run --smoke -w 4


Ran: 93 tests in 773.0000 sec.
 - Passed: 80
 - Skipped: 11
 - Expected Fail: 0
 - Unexpected Success: 0
 - Failed: 2
Sum of execute time for each test: 946.8377 sec.

All done!
