Thierry, I like "Operations" name for this program. It totally makes sense as we can keep this name and extend just mission of this program to include such projects like satori, rubick, logaas and others in future.
Sylvian, Thank you for your input. In my opinion, having 2 separated programs doesn't mean that these 2 programs shouldn't collaborate and work together. Imho we are all one big community and should help each other. Actually the goal of "Operations" program is to be able to organize centralized work on OpenStack API that will provide for OpenStack Operators everything required to analyze how live production OpenStack cloud perform. And in case of issues, to be able fast to detect and debug them. If we present this via OpenStack APi, it will just make a life of QA simpler, because they won't need to do all this via scripts in gates (which is much harder task) Best regards, Boris Pavlovic On Mon, Aug 4, 2014 at 1:04 PM, Sylvain Bauza <sba...@redhat.com> wrote: > > Le 02/08/2014 04:31, Alex Freedland a écrit : > > Angus, > > Rally is designed as an operations tool.
