    • POD 10
      • Lesson's Learned

      • Recommendation for preparing POD15 before software deployment

      • Any modifications to POD10/15 to use it as a Reference.

  • RC: status
    • Status | Milestones - CNTT Snezka (next CNTT release)
    • RC WS Status | Issues
      • NFVI
      • VNF
      • Dev → Volunteers for Dev new issues by Cedric?
  • AOB

Status | Milestones:

  • RC WS
    1. NFVI (Lead = Rajesh, Mike)
      1. IssuesPRs
      2. Assistance Needed
        1. RA 1 requirements extraction → Rajesh, work with Mark S., Sridhar
        2. Manifest validations vs. RA Req
        3. Tune the declarative files to meet RA requirements (re-deploy)
      3. Status | Tasks (Work in progress)
        1. Receive Lab (date)
        2. Translate RA requirements to Manifest Needs (date)
        3. Tune Manifest to match RA requirements (Target End State Lab - POD15) - status of POD 10, then date for POD 15
        4. Testing
          1. Prepare automation harness - connectivity, validation (POD10)? – Cedric?
            1. e.g. functest-smoke-cntt was just created. neutron-tempest-plugin-api is already conformed with the current API section.
          2. Create Test Plan
          3. Finalize Test Harness/Framework
          4. Perform Manifest Validations
          5. Results Collection & Normalization
    2. VNF (Lead = Mike)
      1. IssuesPRs
      2. Assistance Needed
        1. Empirical Validations - VNF Prototype Plan / Strategy
      3. Status | Tasks (Work in progress)
        1. VNF Prototypes
          1. Families Identified
          2. Test Requirements Identified
          3. Strategy

            1. Use POD10 for Network Intensive. 

            2. Measure stats related to the NFVi datapath capacity.

            3. Goal will be to demonstrate full automation of the environment (continuous deployment) with test cases with some useful test results (continuous testing).
            4. Then look at adding compute and storage intensive VNFs and identify test cases that map back to CNTT specified capabilities. (Luc, Sridhar, Al, Trevor - creating more detailed plan?).
        2. Testing
          1. Create Test Plan
          2. Finalize Test Harness/Framework
          3. Results Collection & Normalization
    3. Dev (Lead = Cedric)
      1. IssuesPRs
      2. Assistance Needed
        1. Deployment Validations and continuous deployment / integration 
      3. Status | Tasks (Work in progress)
        1. Jenkins setup
        2. VNF prototype
          1.  Development
