Feature pages are design documents that developers have created while collaborating on oVirt.

Most of them are outdated, but provide historical design context.

They are not user documentation and should not be treated as such.

Documentation is available here.

Detailed Description

A framework is beeing developed which allows to run arbitary tests on an up-and-running oVirt Node. A main focus was to make the framework and handling host agnostic (so running in a VM as well as on real hardware without any modifications).

Benefit to oVirt

Detecting regressions early and offering a more stable oVirt Node image.
