1.1. OverviewΒΆ

This is the Fast Data I/O Project (FD.io) Continuous System Integration and Testing (CSIT) project report for CSIT rls1707 system testing of VPP-17.07 release.

The report describes CSIT functional and performance tests and their continuous execution delivered in CSIT rls1707. A high-level overview is provided for each CSIT test environment running in Linux Foundation (LF) FD.io Continuous Performance Labs. This is followed by summary of all executed tests against the VPP-17.07 release and associated FD.io projects and sub-systems (Honeycomb, DPDK, NSH_SFC), CSIT rls1707 release notes, result highlights and known issues discovered in CSIT. More detailed description of each environment, pointers to CSIT test code documentation and detailed test resuls with links to the source data files are also provided.
