Zemog Master ƛ function

Zemog Master is a part of distributed two-tier system to run scheduled automated Iridium E2E tests at scale.

System consists of two parts:

  • master (AWS Lambda) that schedules tests by adding tasks to AWS SQS
  • worker (Node.js app) that gets tasks from the queue, downloads latest test from S3 bucket and executes them. It is also responsible for sending notifications about failing tests and save failed results to S3 bucket

Here is the high level diagram how it works:

For Zemog Master uses serverless to automate AWS Lambda deployments and for the sweet environment management

Install and Configure Dependencies

  1. You have to configure AWS credentials, use awscli or create ~/.aws/credentials file manually
sudo pip install awscli
aws configure
 AWS Access Key ID [None]: EXAMPLE
 AWS Secret Access Key [None]: EXAMPLEKEY
 Default region name [None]: ap-southeast-2
 Default output format [None]:
  1. Install Serverless and build the app
npm i serverless -g

npm i
# or
yarn install

Message Format

The format for SQS messages is simple:

    "test": "string", // test name to execute
    "app": "string", // used primary for reporting
    "location": "string", // where to find package with tests in S3
    "notifications": "array<string>" // list of notifications channels enabled for this test

For example:

    "test": "opm-tests-1",
    "app": "opm",
    "location": "s3://zemog-bucket/",
    "notifications": ["frontend"]


Read documentation for Serverless to learn more about deployments. We have multiple environments here so you have to specify it

serverless deploy --stage sandbox

You will receive all kind of wierd error messages if environment configuration not found. Like this

/zemog/master » serverless deploy --stage super-environment                                                                                                                                      1

  Serverless Error ---------------------------------------

     Bucket name must start with a letter or number. [object

  Get Support --------------------------------------------

  Your Environment Information -----------------------------
     OS:                 win32
     Node Version:       6.6.0
     Serverless Version: 1.4.0


Nothing special. Local:

serverless invoke local --function master --stage sandbox


serverless invoke --function master --stage sandbox


Serverless provides an ability to setup execution schedule using Cloudwatch Events. Check environments/sandbox.yml for the example of scheduling

We have ESLint that will check codestyle

npm run-script lint
# or
yarn lint

Coding conventions

Start reading our code and you'll get the hang of it.

  • We use .editorconfig.
  • We use eslint
  • We avoid overly complex or obtuse logic, code should mostly document itself. Before you write a code comment think if you can make it describe itself first.
  • This is shared software. Consider the people who will read your code, and make it look nice for them. It's sort of like driving a car: Perhaps you love doing donuts when you're alone, but with passengers the goal is to make the ride as smooth as possible.
