Teuthology docker targets hack (4/5)

The teuthology container hack is improved by adding a flag to retrieve packages from a user specified repository instead of gitbuilder.ceph.com. The user can build packages from sources and run a job, which will implicitly save a docker image with the package installed. The second time the same job is run, it will go faster because it reuses the image. For instance the following job:

machine_type: container
os_type: ubuntu
os_version: "14.04"
suite_path: /home/loic/software/ceph/ceph-qa-suite
roles:
- - mon.a
  - osd.0
  - osd.1
  - client.0
overrides:
  install:
    ceph:
      branch: master
  ceph:
    wait-for-scrub: false
tasks:
- install:
    repository_url: http://172.17.42.1/trusty
- ceph:

runs under one minute:

{duration: 47.98, flavor: basic, owner: loic@dachary.org, success: true}

  1. What if we want to form cluster of containers and when the containers are sitting in different docker host.
    So far your impletementation is on the same docker host, corrent me if i am wrong.

      1. I cloned your wip-container branch and started using it
        so i ran a job file as below:

        machine_type: container
        os_type: ubuntu
        os_version: “14.04”
        suite_path: /home/ceph-qa-suite
        roles:
        – – mon.a
        – osd.0
        – osd.1
        – client.0
        overrides:
        install:
        ceph:
        branch: master
        ceph:
        wait-for-scrub: false
        tasks:
        – install:
        – ceph:

        In usual teuthology way, we also provide in job yaml file ‘targets’ ,
        but since machine_type == container, how do i skip the error that are
        caused because key ‘targets’ not present in ctx.config.

        I also tried by mentioning in job yaml file
        targets:
        container1:
        but then install.py task failed.

        If you ca give me detail of job yaml that you have used, i can manage to
        see where i am going wrong since I don’t have paddle, lock or result server or is it
        compulsory to have paddles/lock/result server ?

        Thanks,
        Shambhu
