Distributed System Integration & Performance Testing Library

Ducktape contains tools for running system integration and performance tests. It provides the following features:

  • Write tests for distributed systems in a simple unit test-like style
  • Isolation by default so system tests are as reliable as possible.
  • Utilities for pulling up and tearing down services easily in clusters in different environments (e.g. local, custom cluster, Vagrant, K8s, Mesos, Docker, cloud providers, etc.)
  • Trigger special events (e.g. bouncing a service)
  • Collect results (e.g. logs, console output)
  • Report results (e.g. expected conditions met, performance results, etc.)
