  1. Every time: Check rule RC-4 (link) that all L or XL commits of the last two weeks have also new unit tests. This is our policy. link-to-reviews (gerrit filter instructions // gerrit t-shirt-sizing).
    1. TODO
  2. Skipped today: every second time: Review code coverage stats and blocker code smells
    1. We take a look at the two links in the beginning of this page: Code coverage reports..
    2. Not done this time // anybody volunteering to work with LF on making the code coverage CI to work again (there's still the old JVM version)
  3. Every time: Check if there are new bug reports in JIRA: link
    1. old report RIC-826 discusses issue around helm3 usage in app manager. Anybody volunteering (HCL?) to check  if we still have helm2 instructed somewhere in it/dep or ric-plt/ric-dep?
    2. TODO
  4. discuss RIC-184 and why we still have helm2 as in RIC-826. To me it seems RIC should be deployed using helm3, but Nune, for example says still, "You should use helm3 only for xApp deployment. For the deployment of platform components, you still need to use helm2".

  4. Nokia had to move O1-related JIRA items to post-E release: RIC-655, RIC-656, RIC-497 and RIC-798. Also there are still legal issues around the copyright of definitions from 3GPP specs that are needed when implementing O1.
  5. Subhash:
    1. RIC-653: A1 Mediator image old - has been corrected. Another issue with helm - has also been resolved. Needs to be reviewed. Somebody from Nokia need to update RIC deployment.
    2. New repo requested for RIC CLI - still pending Thoralf. A1 Mediator go version will use the existing repo (replacing python version)
    3. Naman pushed an update to python xapp framework - under review.
  6. HCL:
    1. Continue on RIC benchmarking.
  7. Can we share ONeS slides to Subhash now?

  3. Every time: Check if there are new bug reports in JIRA: link
    1. new: RIC-826 (discussion ongoing)
  4. Note the presentation slides and video from "Open Source Conference 2021 (5G, IoT and Edge Computing) (organized by the IEEE ComSoc Bangalore chapter and Samsung SOSCON" is now available here: Overall architecture (not component-specific)
  5. E2-related specs are now in IPR approval phase on O-RAN alliance side (O-RAN alliance member only access):
    1. O-RAN.WG3.UCR-v01.00: https://oranalliance.atlassian.net/wiki/download/attachments/2068513840/O-RAN.WG3.UCR-v01.00.docx?api=v2

  6. E release "committed" content: link
  7. Design or coordination aspects of some items of the E release
    1. RIC-638 config transfer E2APv1.1 (Subhash)
    2. RIC-445 CLI (demo from subhash as well)
    3. NOT today: RIC-80 and RIC-796 (REST interface for subscriptions only) (Possibly Anssi)
    4. RIC-809 subscription interface (Supreeth)
    5. RIC-805 We are likely moving the "remove old API part" only in the next release, i.e., maintain old and new in parallel for one release. Team needs some more discussion before something can be presented. Namespace in new implementation is given as part of each get/set method. Previously the namespace was given during SDK initialization. During E release we will only deprecate the old interface, but keep it. Only in F release we will remove.
    6. Mavenir thinking about gRPC as communication mechanism (Matti to send e-mail address to Thoralf).
      1. probably for next meeting due to holiday
    7. Discuss disaggregated VES agent use case and impact on RIC. Thoralf
      1. This is O-RAN O1 release 6 work (July-Dec 2021). Thoralf understands it introduces a "VES proxy agent" into the Edge CloudInfra that on the left gets VES events from CNFs (e.g., via REST events, or (the new thing) a CloudInfra Kafka instance) and on the right side forwards these to the SMO (e.g., directly into Kafka). Not sure if left-side injection can also be done via O1 websocket performance data streaming.
      2. There might be some issues around data schema alignment that need to be addressed
      3. Anyway, from CNF point of view seems to be one more way of sending statistics/metrics out towards the SMO. For now let's focus on existing O1 (files or websocket streaming) means. Also note that statistics are currently collected via Prometheus. I.e., if, we'd be talking about a new or update mediator component that takes the data from Prometheus and sends it to that new "VES proxy agent".
      4. Note that performance related there are also activities under the Prometheus umbrella that might be relevant, e.g., https://openmetrics.io/
      5. So this seems not to be relevant for the E release of near-RT RIC.

    2. As of 2021-05-25 the following components are missing in the report: ric-plt/alarm-cpp, ric-plt/libe2ap, ric-plt/nodeb-rnib, ric-plt/o1, ric-plt/ric-dep, ric-plt/ric-test, ric-plt/sdlpy, ric-plt/utils. Also ric-plt/jaegeradapter is missing, but we probably abandon that component. So no need to spend time on it.
      1. AP-Sunil: check this with HCL team
    3. How to get reports more frequently and up to date?
      1. AP-Sunil: check this with HCL team
    4. check why some have zero code coverage
      1. AP-Sunil: check this with HCL team
    5. ric-plt/e2 is already being handled via RIC-731 (expected to complete in Dawn)
  3. Thoralf updated the CII evaluation criteria. We are now marked as "passed": Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) Badging and https://bestpractices.coreinfrastructure.org/en/projects/4605
    1. Note I added RC-5 in Release criteria checklist template  "RC-5: Check that "blocker" code smells in Sonartype have been addressed"
  4. Status check of D release items.
  5. Subhash's mail - we went through the D release status of various items Samsung was planning to work on.
  6. Sunil. RIC-723 further input needed from Thoralf

    4. RIC-743 Create multiple e2sim for RIC benchmarking // Thoralf created RIC-790 and moved the two remaining subtasks from RIC-150 to it. I closed RIC-150 as DONE

  8. demos again? Yes. On Jun-8 same time slot as this meeting, but 2 hours. Organizational issues after the demo.
    1. From last meeting:
      1. Thoralf to discuss demos for Nokia features, e.g. REST subscriptions, O2 CLI (DMS CLI - Subhash wished for this as REST API is the next step)
      2. Possible influxDB demo to show how to use from xApps
      3. Possible demos in devops areas (e.g. RIC-754)
      4. RIC-129 as slideset demo as real data cannot be used in public demo
      5. RIC-773 if ready by demo
      6. demo for RIC-747/RIC-748 slidesets
  9. Remove Scott as committer - AP Thoralf to start mail thread
  10. Replace Rahul with Naman - AP Thoralf to start approval mail on this.
  11. RICAPP agenda: RICAPP Meetings.

2021-05-11

Recording: link to zoom recording

  1. Every time: Check that all L or XL commits of the last two weeks have also new unit tests. This is our policy. link-to-reviews (gerrit filter instructions // gerrit t-shirt-sizing).
    1. TODO-check in next meeting only
    2. not yet merged: https://gerrit.o-ran-sc.org/r/c/ric-plt/submgr/+/5933 - abandoned
    3. not yet merged: https://gerrit.o-ran-sc.org/r/c/ric-plt/ric-dep/+/5826 (conclusion: no unit testing equivalent for YAML files in helm charts). - need to coordinate with Felix - decide to get rid of the 3rdpart directory because files will be slightly modified to refer to common template.
  2. every second time: Review code coverage stats. (Sunil checks if this next step (overview page) is on HCL or on Thoralf's side as next action) - will discuss with Thoralf next time or by email.
    1. https://sonarcloud.io/organizations/o-ran-sc/projects?search=ric&sort=coverage
    2. NExt Sstep: Thoralf to create some way to maintain history data
  3. When does Dawn end? As per release calendar, normally May-14. However I think we will start late with integrating everything together. So the 3-week sprint that is normally reserved for integration (May-17 – Jun-4) is likely still ok for additions. Based on this I would set a deadline for last commits to Jun-4.
  4. Thoralf still to update or CII evaluation
    1. I added RC-5
  5. Heewon's xApp python framework issue related to RIC-773 - some issues still
  6. Update on A1-EI interface implementation.- Able to query A1-EI types from non RT RIC- Issue is clarified from nonRT RIC team to create EI-JOB
  7. No progress done on E2APv1.1 support as Naman cannot work on it yet.

  14. RICAPP agenda: RICAPP Meetings.
  15. RIC-184 - [Adapt to latest K8S and helm (testing in OSC labs)] - completed

    1. Subtask RIC-747( Study how nanobot tests can be extended to Xapp) : Discussed with Thoralf and based on priority we listed out the scenarios for xapp testing using nanobot. 

      First Priority:

      • Xapp Testing Enhancement like Subscription deletion need to be addup.
      • The control interface nanobot could even steer different scenarios, e.g., related to timing. E.g., send a subscription delete for a originally-failed or non-existent subscription; or send duplicate subscriptions, … I.e., testing for correct behavior in failure/timeout scenarios.

       Second Priority:     

      • Xapp need to handle E2 Control which already has a scenario (see spec) in which the E2 node sends back a RIC CONTROL ACK. That could be tested as well.
      • Additionally we could have test cases for A1 policy handling (and possibly A1-EI handling if we get +https://jira.o-ran-sc.org/browse/RIC-129+ implemented within Dawn)

      Third Priority:

      • O1 proxying, i.e., the CM flow to xApps and FM/PM flow from xApps would be more test cases. 
      • Change in the xApp test implementation in which we do not rely on logs but nanobot communicates with the test xApp via some control interface to check Whether a test has been successful or not.


    2. Subtask RIC-748(Study OTF & Xtesting as a prospective test framework candidate to draw from for ORAN Near RT RIC) :  Given demo to Thoralf and Matti about this OTF and xtesting comparison.    

        As discussed with Thoralf  he asked which one we can go with either xtesting or OTF.

        I preferred OTF test framework need to explore more on hands-on experience with OTF and VTH integration.

        Working in progress on deploying OTF in to our environment and also looking for OSC lab access to understand.
