One more comment about the test package version. Most likely, the
package version will be the same version as the VDSM package version.
The rule we need to consider is: Should we keep the back compatibility
with the VDSM files? Say allow newer version test package running on
older VDSM files? Or just allow run the same version of test package and
VDSM package.One more comment about the test package version. Most

UT: for developers, more likely a white box, running on building

1 modify building system to generate package: vdsm-VT.rpm.
I would prefer the package name 'vdsm-test.rpm' and this package should include
unit tests and verification tests.
2 install as an option, after install, user type "vdsm-VT" would make
the test begin.
The test runner should be able to run the full suite of unit tests and
verification tests (with an option to run only unit tests or only verification
tests). This can be the same program that we use in the build environment
except that it will set the PYTHONPATH differently to target the installed
1 Going to place cases in vdsm project in ./tests/VT.
2 On installation will move some useful UT cases into VT.
If you follow my approach above, you would simply package the whole tests/
directory and no copying would be necessary.
3 use same framework UT used.
4 two sub dir in test/VT: user_case_test;general_test.
What is the difference between these two types of tests?
It is just a scratch from my mind, so I'd like hear your opinions.
Thanks for the idea! Do you have a sample test for the verification test suite?
Will it be your pipe deadlock test?
