CLI User Manual
QTIP consists of a number of benchmarking tools or metrics, grouped under QPI's. QPI's map to the different
components of a NFVI ecosystem, such as compute, network and storage. Depending on the type of application,
a user may group them under plans.
QTIP CLI provides interface to all of the above the components. A help page provides a list of all the commands
along with a short description.
Typically a complete plan is executed at the target environment. QTIP defaults to a number of sample plans.
A list of all the available plans can be viewed
qtip plan list
In order to view the details about a specific plan.
qtip plan show <plan_name>
where *plan_name* is one of those listed from the previous command.
To execute a complete plan
qtip plan run <plan_name> -p <path_to_result_directory>
QTIP does not limit result storage at a specific directory. Instead a user may specify his own result storage
as above. An important thing to remember is to provide absolute path of result directory.
qtip plan run <plan_name> -p $PWD/result
Similarly, the same commands can be used for the other two components making up the plans, i.e QPI's and metrics.
For example, in order to run a single metric
qtip metric run <metric_name> -p $PWD/result
The same can be applied for a QPI.
QTIP also provides the utility to view benchmarking results on the console. One just need to provide to where
the results are stored. Extending the example above
qtip report show <metric_name> -p $PWD/result
Debug option helps identify the error by providing a detailed traceback. It can be enabled as
qtip [-d|--debug] plan run <plan_name>
