Browbeat ships with a Rally plugin which integrates PBench, this marriage of tools allows us to develop many low-level tests. Integrating PBench into Browbeat opens the doors for the potential to orchestrate NFV workloads in the future.
Join us at the OpenStack Summit Barcelona and learn how to take the wizardry out of OpenStack performance and scale testing with Browbeat. Tuesday, October 25th 2:15-2:55pm in P1 room 112. Learn how to get started with Browbeat, relevant performance/scale issues and metrics, future roadmap and a whole lot more. Continue reading
OpenStack Mitaka is out the door and it is time to start looking at OpenStack Newton. OpenStack Newton brings changes to how Neutron is configured out of the box, for example, of_interface driver will switch from ofctl to native. To read more about how things have changed visit, Unreleased Notes. We want to measure how these changes could impact Neutrons API Performance.
With the arrival of Gnocchi in Tripleo deployed OpenStack Clouds, we decided it would be a good time to develop some tooling and tests to help characterize OpenStack Telemetry services with Gnocchi as a backend. Continue reading
Data is power in the world of performance engineering. Be it test results, system metrics, tunable knobs or record shattering benchmarks, data is everywhere. Read on to know how we at Red Hat are leveraging the power of Elasticsearch with Browbeat to lead the next revolution in performance engineering. Continue reading
We now hold regular upstream IRC meetings in #openstack-browbeat on irc.freenode.net every Wednesday at 11am EDT / 4pm BST. You can find the latest meeting notes and action items here, courtesy of meetbot. We’re going to try to do this on a weekly basis. Users, contributors and interested parties always welcome.
Here’s a very short, simple video showing how to contribute code to the Browbeat Project.
- Clone our git repo
- Make changes needed, save
- Add your changes via git and initiate git-review
As of a recent OpenStack commit Browbeat has now moved to the OpenStack.org namespace! Stay tuned for updated documentation around contributing and getting involved with the project. Below are new services provided by the OpenStack upstream infrastructure, CI and gating:
Grafana is a powerful and elegant framework allowing easy-to-create dashboards for sharing metric with your team and the world. The data we gather is collected using collectd, a lightweight agent which collects system performance statistics periodically and stores them locally or to a central repository. In our case we use graphite’s carbon-cache to collect metrics, and graphite-web to provide a data source for grafana. Continue reading
