Barometer post installation procedures

This document describes briefly the methods of validating the Barometer installation.

Automated post installation activities

The Barometer test-suite in Functest is called barometercollectd and is part of the Features tier. Running these tests is done automatically by the OPNFV deployment pipeline on the supported scenarios. The testing consists of basic verifications that each plugin is functional per their default configurations. Inside the Functest container, the detailed results can be found in the /home/opnfv/functest/results/barometercollectd.log.

Barometer post configuration procedures

The functionality for each plugin (such as enabling/disabling and configuring its capabilities) is controlled as described in the User Guide through their individual .conf file located in the /etc/collectd/collectd.conf.d/ folder on the compute node(s). In order for any changes to take effect, the collectd service must be stopped and then started again.
