wicked_command($action => [ifup|ifdown|ifreaload], $iface)

Executes wicked command given the action on the corresponding interface.

The mandatory parameter action specifies the action [ifup|ifdown|ifreaload]. The mandatory parameter iface specifies the interface which action will be executed on. This function saves the command and the stdout and stderr to a file to be uploaded later.


  assert_wicked_state([wicked_client_down => 0, interfaces_down => 0,
                       wicked_daemon_down => 0, $ping_ip, $iface])

Check that wicked processes are as expected by input arguments. 'Up' by default.

The optional parameters wicked_client_down is given normally with interfaces_down => 1 to verify that wicked.service process is down. The optional argument wicked_daemon_down is given to verify that wickedd.service is down. The optional argument ping_ip checks that the IP is reachable. The optinal argument iface allows to print the output of the command 'ip address show'. With no arguments, it will check that wicked.service and wickedd.service are up.


  get_remote_ip(type => $type [, netmask => 0])

Calls internally get_ip() and retrieves the corresponding IP of the remote site.


  get_ip(type => [host|gre1|sit1|tunl1|tun1|br0|vlan|vlan_changed] [, is_wicked_ref => check_var('IS_WICKED_REF', '1'), netmask => 0])

Retrives IP address as string in IPv4 or IPv6 format and netmask prefix if netmask is set.

The mandatory parameter type specify the interfaces type. If parameter netmask is set, the IP address contains the /xx netmask prefix, if specified. With is_wicked_ref you can specify which IP address you like to retrives. If is_wicked_ref isn't set the job variable IS_WICKED_REF will be used. See also get_remote_ip().


  get_current_ip(ifc => $interface [, ip_version => 'v4'])

Gets the IP of a given interface by ifc.

The parameter ip_version chould be one of the values 'v4' or 'v6'.


Download all files from data/wicked into WICKED_DATA_DIR. This method is used by


  get_from_data($source, $target [, executable => 0, add_suffix => 0])

Downloads to the current VM a file from the data directory given by source and stores it in target.

If the parameter add_suffix is set to 1, it will append 'ref' or 'sut' at the end of the filename. If the parameter executable is set to 1, it will grant execution permissions to the file.


  ping_with_timeout(type => $type[, ip => $ip, timeout => 60, ip_version => 'v4', proceed_on_failure => 0])

Pings a given IP with a given timeout. ip_version defines the ping command to be used, 'ping' by default and 'ping6' for 'v6'. IP could be specified directly via ip or using type variable. In case of type variable it will be bypassed to get_remote_ip function to get IP by label. If ping fails, command die unless you specify proceed_on_failure.


  setup_tuntap($config, $type => [tun1|tap1])

Setups a TUN or TAP interface from a config file with the keywords 'local_ip' and 'remote_ip' which will be replaced with the corresponding IPs. The mandatory parameter type determines if it will configure a TUN device or a TAP device. The interface will be brought up using a wicked command.


  setup_tunnel($config, $type => [gre1|sit1|tunl1|tun1])

Setups a tunnel interface from a config file with the keywords 'local_ip', 'remote_ip' and 'tunnel_ip' which will be replaced with the corresponding IPs. The mandatory parameter type should determine the interface to be configured. The interface will be brought up using a wicked command.


  create_tunnel_with_commands($type => [gre1|sit1|tunl1|tun1], $mode => [gre|sit|ipip|tun], $sub_mask)

Setups a TUNL interface with IP commands (no wicked commands!). The parameter type determines the interface to be configured and mode the type of tunnel. Supported tunnels in this function are GRE, SIT, IPIP, TUN.


  setup_bridge($config, $command => [ifup, ifdown, ifreload] [, $dummy])

Setups a bridge interface from a config file with the keywords 'local_ip' which will be replaced with the corresponding IP. If dummy is given, it will also configure the dummy interface using the config file given by this parameter. command determines the wicked command to bring up/down the interface


  setup_openvpn_client($device => [tun1, tap1])

Setups the openvpn client using the interface given by device


  get_test_result($type, $ip_version => v4)

It returns FAILED or PASSED if the ping to the remote IP of a certain interface type given by type is reachable or not. The parameter ip_version chould be one of the values 'v4' or 'v6'.


  upload_wicked_logs($prefix => [pre|post])

Gathers all the needed wicked information and compiles a compressed file that get's uploaded to the openqa instance. This function is normally called before and after a test is executed, the parameter prefix is used to to be appended to the file name to be uploaded. Normally 'pre' or 'post', but could be any string.



Used to syncronize the wicked tests for SUT and REF creating the corresponding mutex locks.



Creating VLAN using only ip commands. Getting ip alias name for wickedbase::get_ip function


  sync_start_of($service, $mutex, [,$timeout])

Start $service within defined $timeout ( default is 60). After succesfully service start will create mutex with $mutex which can be used by parallel test to catch this event
