Automated Network Performance testing in Python

LNST (Linux Network Stack Test) is a python framework for writing multihost network tests. Since the last time we've presented at Devconf we've redesigned most of the framework so that our tests are now completely written in Python. This allows for a much more dynamic approach to network configuration and design of test procedures.

During the presentation we'll show how basic tests can be written and how the same framework is utilized in more complex scenarios where we test the Linux kernel, looking for performance regressions.

Finally we'll shortly discuss how LNST is used at Red Hat with other tools to create an automated pipeline that tests and reports results for kernel and other package candidate builds.
