14:34:28 <mbeierl> #info What is performance testing and how does it relate to CVC?  There is no pass/fail for performance, so that must be reporting only
14:35:00 <mbeierl> #info which brings up the point that Dovetail and CVC are two separate goals.  CVC is a subset of Dovetail.
14:35:28 <mbeierl> #info Dovetail has optional tests, and we certainly have the leeway to extend the optional tests to include performance
14:36:07 <mbeierl> #info Performance then does not provide a pass/fail, but it does provide additional information above the basic functions.
14:36:41 <mbeierl> #info to paraphrase Al, first we show that it works, then we can say how fast it works
14:40:59 <mbeierl> #info Dovetail initially proposed the scope of OVP, but now there is the LFN CVC that is taking this concept and moving it forward and will have its own direction
14:42:14 <mbeierl> #info Dovetail is able to perform tests such as performance, and is not bound to create a pass/fail opinion on it
14:42:40 <mbeierl> #info it would be the CVC that would make a decision on how they want to use these numbers
14:57:57 <mbeierl> #link http://testresults.opnfv.org/reporting/
14:58:36 <mbeierl> #info Mark asks the question: how does Dovetail see itself in relationship to the test results dashboard?  Can Dovetail become the project that helps with release verification?
15:01:16 <mbeierl> #info Al Believes: instead of thresholds, there can be a system of references - performance of well-known platforms - which users can compare new results against. This makes the results more meaningful to users!
