Redis Labs Test Framework, allow to run tests on redis and modules on a variety of environments

Project description

license PyPI version CI Version Codecov Known Vulnerabilities


Redis Labs Test Framework, allow running tests on redis and modules on a variety of environments.

Supported Environment: oss, oss-cluster, enterprise, enterprise-cluster

The framework allow you to write a test without environment specification and then run the test on all supported environment.

                        Valgrind will be used to fail the tests.Use this
                        option when you wish to dry-run valgrind but not fail
                        the test on valgrind reported errors. (default: False)
  -i, --interactive-debugger
                        runs the redis on a debuger (gdb/lldb)
                        interactivly.debugger interactive mode is only
                        possible on a single process and so unsupported on
                        cluste or with is also not possible to use
                        valgrind on interactive mode.interactive mode direcly
                        applies: --no-output-catch and is
                        also implies that only one test will be run (if --env-
                        only was not specify), an error will be raise
                        otherwise. (default: False)
  --debugger DEBUGGER   Run specified command line as the debugger (default:
  -s, --no-output-catch
                        all output will be written to the stdout, no log
                        files. (default: False)
  --check-exitcode      Check redis process exit code (default: False)
  --unix                Use Unix domain sockets instead of TCP (default:
  --randomize-ports     Randomize Redis listening port assignment rather
                        thanusing default port (default: False)
  --collect-only        Collect the tests and exit (default: False)
  --tls                 Enable TLS Support and disable the non-TLS port
                        completely. TLS connections will be available at the
                        default non-TLS ports. (default: False)
  --tls-cert-file TLS_CERT_FILE
                        /path/to/redis.crt (default: None)

                        /path/to/ca.crt (default: None)

Sample usages

Multiple modules

RLTest --module modules/ --module-args '' --module modules/ --module-args ''

Configuration File

By default, the framework search for configuration file on the current directory. The configuration file name is: config.txt. It is possible to specify different configuration file on command line using the '@' prefix, for example:

RLTest @myConfig.txt # search for myConfig.txt configuration file

The configuration file format is the same as the command line argument, i.e : '--< param_name > < param_val >'.

It is also possible to comment a specific lines in the configuration file using '#'.



Test Example

from RLTest import Env
import time

class testExample():
    run all tests on a single env without taking
    env down between tests
    def __init__(self):
        self.env = Env()

    def testExample(self):
        con = self.env.getConnection()
        con.set('x', 1)
        self.env.assertEqual(con.get('x'), '1')

    def testExample1(self):
        con = self.env.getConnection()
        con.set('x', 1)
        self.env.assertEqual(con.get('x'), '1')
        self.env.assertFalse(True)  # check failure

    def testExample2(self):
        con = self.env.getConnection()
        con.set('x', 1)
        self.env.assertEqual(con.get('x'), '1')

# run each test on different env
def test_example():
    env = Env()
    con = env.getConnection()
    con.set('x', 1)
    env.assertEqual(con.get('x'), '1')

def test_example_2():
    env = Env()
    env.assertOk(env.cmd('set', 'x', '1'))
    env.expect('get', 'x').equal('1')

    env.expect('lpush', 'list', '1', '2', '3').equal(3)
    env.expect('lrange', 'list', '0', '-1').debugPrint().contains('1')
    env.debugPrint('this is some debug printing')

def test_example_3():
    env = Env(useSlaves=True, env='oss')
    con = env.getConnection()
    con.set('x', 1)
    con2 = env.getSlaveConnection()
    env.assertEqual(con2.get('x'), '1')
