Vdsm Nose Tests

How to run vdsm Nose Tests:

  1. First you must have a vdsm git repository: git clone “”

  2. Install python-nose
  3. To perform static tests (pyflakes and pep8) use: ‘make check-local’
  4. To run all of the tests use: make check

    • Please notice that ‘make rpm’ also runs all of the tests automatically.
  5. To run a specific test use: ‘../tests/’ in the directory vdsm/vdsm
  6. We strongly prefer you don’t use the following option, but if you must it is possible to exclude some of the tests using: ‘NOSE_EXCLUDE=’(here you create your rule)’
