    2. Juraj LinkeŇ° (jlinkes, 14:04:18)
    3. Govind, pls add discussion of new ipsec test cases (mackonstan, 14:04:34)

  2. Inputs from projects - VPP (mackonstan, 14:05:05)
    1. Andrew, 3 weeks to rc1 (mackonstan, 14:05:16)

  3. Inputs from projects - VSAP (mackonstan, 14:05:25)
    1. Dave, continue to iterate on the patch, focus on VPP testing, not on NGINX version (mackonstan, 14:08:37)
    2. Vratko Polak. (vrpolak, 14:11:26)
    3. Dave, vpp hoststack would like to have benchmarks presented in the report, and in trending, details to be ironed out over email (mackonstan, 14:14:27)

  4. Inputs from projects - TSC (mackonstan, 14:14:40)
    1. The technical question of VSAP/hoststack coverage for report (and trending) can be decided in Gerrit (change editing job specs). The organizational question is who should be the contributor. (vrpolak, 14:17:03)
    2. Maciek, Vratko, Ray has started to drive converstaion about the process for vendor donating the equipment into FD.io labs, took action to starting writing the draft. (mackonstan, 14:17:06)

  5. Releases - CSIT-2106 (mackonstan, 14:17:22)
    1. Govind, working on IPsec SPD vpp code optimization, would like to add tests to this regard (mackonstan, 14:19:25)
    2. Govind, focus on SPD policy match engine benchmarking, not crypto (mackonstan, 14:21:38)
    3. Maciek, sounds good (mackonstan, 14:23:46)
    4. Vratko, working on updates to suite generator to support ipsec scale test suite generator; but the SPD tests are orthogonal to that (mackonstan, 14:24:19)
    5. Juraj, looks at 4 different values for SPD rules times resulting in 4 test suites (mackonstan, 14:27:49)

  6. Physical Infrastructure (mackonstan, 14:28:38)
  7. Physical Infrastructure - DC move (mackonstan, 14:29:26)
    1. Peter, progressing well, right now at stage 5, 4 x 2n-skx perf testbeds (mackonstan, 14:29:53)
    2. Peter, about 2 racks remaining after stage 5, see Peter's patch for details (mackonstan, 14:31:51)

  8. Releases - CSIT-2106 take 2 (mackonstan, 14:32:04)
    1. Fan, having 3 patches waiting for review (mackonstan, 14:32:42)

    5. https://gerrit.fd.io/r/c/ci-management/+/31821 (mackonstan, 14:34:33)
    6. Fan, will confirm with authors if the patches are focusing on functional tests for flow offload executing on vpp_device testbeds (suited for functional testing) or on performance testbeds (not suited for functional testing) (mackonstan, 14:36:37)

  9. Virtual Infrastructure, CI/CD (mackonstan, 14:37:10)
    1. Dave, 2 sporadic network issues continue to impact vpp and csit jobs i) gerrit fetch errors and ii) tcp connection resets. (mackonstan, 14:39:28)
    2. Dave, added some band aid in a shape of rechecks (mackonstan, 14:39:46)
    3. Dave, Andrew, Peter, Maciek, firm up request for logical topology representing failing sessions/flows path; ask for 15min daily progress live syncs with reps from CSIT/FD.io, Vexxhost, LF-IT. (mackonstan, 14:51:26)

  10. Moving away from Nexus. (mackonstan, 14:58:21)
    1. Dave, docs moving to readthedocs.io (mackonstan, 14:58:31)
    2. Tibor, needs to read up on what this means for CSIT reports (mackonstan, 14:58:44)

  11. Performance Tests (mackonstan, 14:58:54)
    1. Vratko, few tests still broken in daily trending: nat44ed multi-worker, geneve. Also sporadic failures for other tests, possibly fixed in VPP with https://gerrit.fd.io/r/c/vpp/+/32200 (mackonstan, 15:01:39)

  12. Functional Tests (mackonstan, 15:01:59)
    1. Juraj, re IPS case: Faulty VF initialization during DPDK startup, new instructions received from Intel dpdk devs, advising on an updated versions for involved SW stack DPDK, FVL driver, FVL firmware (mackonstan, 15:03:11)
    2. Juraj will coordinate with Peter re doing the work on x86 that is preferred by Intel dpdk dev vs doing it on Arm, guess due to test env consistency (mackonstan, 15:04:19)
