Hello all,

If you want to deploy interesting and representative workloads on clouds,
please take a look at CBTOOL (https://github.com/ibmcb/cbtool). It is a
multi-cloud and multi-workload experimentation/benchmark framework, with
good support for OpenStack. It is under active development, and we are
constantly adding support for more clouds and more workloads.

Are you planning to do this somehow "generic" so that other projects
can write their own "workload test suite"?

1) What about number of concurrent requests? If you're planning to boot
many instances concurrently it might make sense to make sure Glance is
capable of handling that load.

It would also be helpful to know what storage backend are you planning
to use for this tests. I'd suggest using the local filesystem store.
