-SampleVNF Test Infrastructure (NSB (Yardstick_NSB_))in yardstick helps to facilitate
-consistent/repeatable methodologies for characterizing & validating the
-sample VNFs (:term:`VNF`) through OPEN SOURCE VNF approximations.
-
-Network Service Benchmarking in yardstick framework follows ETSI GS NFV-TST001_
-to verify/characterize both :term:`NFVI` & :term:`VNF`
-
-The document ETSI GS NFV-TST001_, "Pre-deployment Testing; Report on Validation
-of NFV Environments and Services", recommends methods for pre-deployment
-testing of the functional components of an NFV environment.
+When executing the tests, traffic will be send between 2 or more PROX VMs and all metrics
+will be collected in the Xtesting database.
+The placement of the test VMs (in which the PROX tool is running), can be controlled by
+Heat stacks, but can also be done through other means. This will be explained in the chapter
+covering the PROX instance deployment, and needs to be done prior to the test execution.
-The SampleVNF project implements the methodology described in chapter 13 of Yardstick_NSB_,
-"Pre-deployment validation of NFV infrastructure".
+The PROX tool is a DPDK based application optimized for high throughput packet handling.
+As such, we will not measure limitations imposed by the tool, but the capacity of the
+NFVI. In the rare case that the PROX tool would impose a limit, a warning will be logged.
-The methodology consists in decomposing the typical :term:`VNF` work-load
-performance metrics into a number of characteristics/performance vectors, which
-each can be represented by distinct test-cases.

+The document ETSI GS NFV-TST009_, "Specification of Networking Benchmarks and

+metrics and the associated methods of measurement for Benchmarking networks supported

+The delay variation is not represented by the Frame Delay Variation (FDV) as defined in
+the specification, but by the average latency, the 99 percentile latency, the maximum
+latency and the complete latency distribution histogram.

+SampleVNF Installation
+======================
+
+Abstract
+--------
+The installation procedures described below will result in the deployment of
+all SW components needed to run the benchmarking procedures as defined in ETSI
+GS NFV-TST009 on top of an NFVI instance that is the subject of this characterization.
+Xtesting in combination with the rapid scripts and the PROX tool will be used to achieve this.
+
+The steps needed to run the benchmarking are:
+ 1) Identify a machine on which you will install the containers to support the testing
+ 2) Clone the samplevnf project on that machine
+ 3) Deploy the testing VMs (hosting PROX tool) (Or containers)
+ 4) Deploy your own Xtesting toolchain.
+ 5) Build the test container that will drive the TST009 testing
+ 6) Publish your container on your local repository
+ 7) Execute the testing
+
+In this chapter, we will cover the first 6 installation steps.
+
+Prerequisites
+-------------
+
+Supported Test setup
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+The device under test (DUT) is an NFVI instance on which we can deploy PROX instances.
+A PROX instance is a machine that
+ * has a management interface that can be reached from the test container
+ * has one or more data plane interfaces on a dataplane network.
+ * can be a container, a VM or a bare metal machine. We just need to be able to ssh into the
+ PROX machine from the test container.
+ * is optimized for data plane traffic.
+ * will measure the throughput that is offered through its dataplane interface(s)
+There are no requirements on the NFVI instance itself. Of course, the measured throughput will
+depend heavily on the NFVI characteristics.
+In this release, we are supporting an automated deployment of the PROX instance on an NFVI that
+provides the OpenStack Heat interface. You could also deploy the PROX instances using other
+mechanisms. As long as you provide the necessary files describing these instances, the execution
+of the test can also be done automatically (steps 4-7) and hence be executed on different DUTs,
+e.g. VMWare, K8s, bare metal, ...
+
+Below is the basic picture of the deployment needed for the testing.
+
+.. image:: images/rapid.png
+ :width: 800px
+ :alt: supported topology
+
+Different test scenario's can now be executed by deploying the PROX machines on different systems:
+ * The generator machine could be deployed on a well defined compute node, that has network access
+ to the other nodes through the TOR. The generated traffic is very similar to external traffic.
+ * The Generator and the Swap instance could be on the same compute node to test E-W traffic between
+ 2 instance on the same compute node
+ * The Generator and the Swap instance could be on a different compute node
+
+Many VMs can be deployed before the test is running: each test case can then use different pairs of
+PROX instances to test all the above scenarios
+
+Hardware & Software Ingredients
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+The only requirement is to have the PROX instances running. There are no stringent requirements to be able
+to run the test. Of course, the dataplane performance will heavily depend on the underlying NFVI HW & SW
+
+Installation Steps
+------------------
+
+Step 1: Identify a machine on which you will install the containers
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+This machine will needs enough resource to install the Xtesting framework and needs to be enabled
+for containers.
+Form a network point of view, it will need to have access to the PROX instances: That means it will need
+to be able to ssh into these machines and that the network also needs to allow for TCP port 8474 traffic.
+
+When using the automation to create the VM through the Heat Stack API, this machine also needs to be able
+execute the OpenStack API. Alternatively, the creation of the VMs can be executed on another machine, but
+this will involve some manual file copying.
+
+Step 2: Clone the samplevnf project on that machine
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+ ::
+ git clone https://git.opnfv.org/samplevnf
+Go to the relevant directory in this repository: samplevnf/VNFs/DPPD-PROX/helper-scripts/rapid/
+
+Step 3: Deploy the testing VMs
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+In this step, we will be deploying 2 or more instances that host the PROX tool. At the end of this step,
+the instances will be running and an environment file (default name: rapid.env) will be created. This file
+will have all information needed to run the actual test. You can do this step manually on all kinds of
+platforms (OpenStack, VMWare, K8s, bare metal, ...), but the automation tools described in the rest of this
+paragraph will using OpenStack Heat yaml files.
+First, a PROX qcow2 image needs to be downloaded.
+ ::
+ wget http://artifacts.opnfv.org/samplevnf/jerma/prox_jerma.qcow2
+This image can also be created mannualy by following instructions in https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/SAM/Rapid+scripting,
+in the section "Creating an image"
+Now upload this image to Openstack:
+ ::
+ openstack image` create --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --file prox_jerma.qcow2 rapidVM
+Now run createrapid.sh to create the stack. This process takes the config_file as input. Details can be found in
+https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/SAM/Rapid+scripting, in the section "Deploying the VMs"
+ ::
+ ./createrapid.sh
+At the end of this step, VMs should be running and the rapid.env and rapid_key.pem files should be available.
+
+Step 4: Deploy your own Xtesting toolchain
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+Install Xtesting as described in https://xtesting.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
+First goto the xtesting directory in samplevnf/VNFs/DPPD-PROX/helper-scripts/rapid/xtesting (this was cloned
+in step 2)
+ ::
+ virtualenv xtesting
+ . xtesting/bin/activate
+ pip install ansible
+ ansible-galaxy install collivier.xtesting
+ ansible-playbook site.yaml
+ deactivate
+ rm -r xtesting
+
+Step 5: Build the test container that will drive the TST009 testing
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+ ::
+ docker build -t 127.0.0.1:5000/rapidxt .
+
+Step 6: Publish your container on your local repository
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+ ::
+ docker push 127.0.0.1:5000/rapidxt
+
+You are now ready to execute the testing
