This test case tests if the thermostat command channel works (locally).


  1. Boot into the machine/VM you wish to test.
  2. If thermostat is not installed yet, install thermostat.
  3. Start the thermostat service: thermostat service &

How to test

  1. Figure out an host ID of a live agent: thermostat list-vms | grep RUNNING
  2. Pick a suitable ID which has STATUS == RUNNING, lets say such an ID is: 0f00d89d-0441-4569-83c7-f08e2182c939
  3. Set log level to FINEST and set up a file logger as described in the logging test case
  4. Ping the host ID: thermostat ping 0f00d89d-0441-4569-83c7-f08e2182c939.

Expected Results

  1. Step 4 should come back with:
Queuing ping request.  Destination: /
Response received from: /
  1. Note that all of this should work in a remote setup as well. Many bonus points for testers who try this out! Create a virtual network consisting of two or more hosts sharing one storage. Agent running on one host and calling thermostat ping from different host.
