This document describes a high-level design of a system for continuous performance measuring, trending and change detection for FD.io VPP SW data plane (and other performance tests run within CSIT sub-project).

There is a Performance Trending (PT) CSIT module, and a separate Performance Analysis (PA) module ingesting results from PT and analysing, detecting and reporting any performance anomalies using historical data and statistical metrics. PA does also produce trending dashboard, list of failed tests and graphs with summary and drill-down views across all specified tests that can be reviewed and inspected regularly by FD.io developers and users community.
