Last week in scylla-cluster-tests.git master (issue #15; 2023-06-09)

This short report brings to light some interesting commits to scylla-cluster-tests.git master from the last week. Commits in the bf744770…405f9eb8 range are covered.

There were 21 non-merge commits from 6 authors in that period. Some notable commits:

Since it is planned to drop SimpleStrategy and we want to test more production-like cases, now we use NetworkTopologyStrategy in every test scenario.

Recently many changes were added to Gemini load tool and new versions were released, thus our tests upgraded Gemini version to 1.8.2. Because new docker image changed entrypoint and dir structure, some adaptations were required to the way we run it.

Since we have feature we want to use that aren’t supported by libcloud for GCE, we removed all usages of it and replaced with official GCE Cloud SDK. This change affected many files and required a lot of code changes and was splitted to multiple commits: #1, #2, #3, #4.

All the manager jobs will use the latest enterprise version (2022.2) instead of the latest OSS version. The scenarios that used to be dedicated to enterprise runs will now use the older enterprise version instead (2022.1).

We encourage everyone to try out running SCT tests. To ease that, we fixed&refactored the readme into several parts with foucs on using hydra in the quickstart and moving the rest of the information into varius sections.

Since for reporting purpose, new ScyllaDB images created by Releng are going to be created under Releng’s sub-account. SCT now supports it.

See you in the next issue of last week in scylla-cluster-tests.git master!
