SMI-S Conformance Testing

Definitions and Terms


SMI-Provider Test - General Terms

Section Purpose: Describes the general, or high-level, definitions and terms used with respect to the SMI-Provider testing.

Elements Tested

Autonomous Profiles - Profiles that describe a high-level functionality of devices (such as arrays and switches) or programs (such as host filesystems).

Component Profiles - Profiles that describe additional functionalities of an autonomous profile or another component profile. For example, the FC Target Ports profile describes the fibre channel target port connections of an array.

Early Adopter Profiles - Autonomous and component profiles that are still in the process of being refined by the SMI community. These profiles are listed on various pages to show that they are actively being tested by vendors for full acceptance.

Functions Supported - Functions provided by SMI-S and its profiles and provisions.


SMI-Provider Test - Levels of Testing

Section Purpose: Describes definitions and terms that are specific to SMI-Provider testing at three different levels, for versions 1.4 and above.

Test Level - The SMI-Provider test, as of version 1.4, is partitioned into various levels of testing. The levels are Passive (read-only), Active (read-write) and Event Driven (production of profile event notifications).

Test Level: Active - Level of SMI-Provider testing at which the provider is asked to perform some sort of activity, such as provisioning, that changes the configuration of the device being managed and the model that represents the device in the provider.

Test Level: Event Driven - Level of SMI-Provider testing at which notification of events in a device are produced and validated by the test.

Test Level: Passive - Level of SMI-Provider testing at which the provider is read to obtain the information in the SMI-S model. This includes verification that objects in a profile are all properly connected as defined by the SMI-S and a client can determine the representation of the device under test.
