Testing Guide

We use two open source test tools to test Trellis behavior.

  • Data Plane Testing - OFTest

    We use OFTest to verify the behavior of a hardware switch is the same as described in the OF-DPA specification.

    This tool was originally developed by Big Switch and later modified by Accton.

    The test cases for verifying OF-DPA behavior were written by ONF.

    To learn more about OFTest and how we use it for OF-DPA verification, please visit Data Plane Testing.

  • Control Plane Testing - TestON

    We use TestON to verify the Trellis control application behavior when used for a leaf-spine fabric.

    These tests are merged into ONOS test repository and run nightly.
