When it comes to data durability, the Ceph distributed storage stack is in a class of its own. Much of this success can be traced to its “teuthology” automated testing system, which runs thousands of machine-hours of tests every day. This talk will describe the technical function of teuthology and its associated systems; explore how Ceph succeeded in automated testing that is reliable and useful at both a system and community level; and discuss the ways and whys of where that testing falls short. We’ll explore pain points and pitfalls to avoid in trying to build these systems out, and ideas to help overcome them.
