Interoperability Test Case Descriptions

Client and server use test.proto and the gRPC over HTTP/2 v2 protocol.

Client

Clients implement test cases that test certain functionally. Each client is provided the test case it is expected to run as a command-line parameter. Names should be lowercase and without spaces.

Clients should accept these arguments:

  • --server_host=HOSTNAME
    • The server host to connect to. For example, "localhost" or "127.0.0.1"
  • --server_host_override=HOSTNAME
    • The server host to claim to be connecting to, for use in TLS and HTTP/2 :authority header. If unspecified, the value of --server_host will be used
  • --server_port=PORT
    • The server port to connect to. For example, "8080"
  • --test_case=TESTCASE
    • The name of the test case to execute. For example, "empty_unary"
  • --use_tls=BOOLEAN
    • Whether to use a plaintext or encrypted connection
  • --use_test_ca=BOOLEAN
    • Whether to replace platform root CAs with ca.pem as the CA root
  • --default_service_account=ACCOUNT_EMAIL
    • Email of the GCE default service account.
  • --oauth_scope=SCOPE
  • --service_account_key_file=PATH
    • The path to the service account JSON key file generated from GCE developer console.

Clients must support TLS with ALPN. Clients must not disable certificate checking.

empty_unary

This test verifies that implementations support zero-size messages. Ideally, client implementations would verify that the request and response were zero bytes serialized, but this is generally prohibitive to perform, so is not required.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client calls EmptyCall with the default Empty message

Client asserts:

  • call was successful
  • response is non-null

It may be possible to use UnaryCall instead of EmptyCall, but it is harder to ensure that the proto serialized to zero bytes.

cacheable_unary

This test verifies that gRPC requests marked as cacheable use GET verb instead of POST, and that server sets appropriate cache control headers for the response to be cached by a proxy. This test requires that the server is behind a caching proxy. Use of current timestamp in the request prevents accidental cache matches left over from previous tests.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client calls CacheableUnaryCall with SimpleRequest request with payload set to current timestamp. Timestamp format is irrelevant, and resolution is in nanoseconds. Client adds a x-user-ip header with value 1.2.3.4 to the request. This is done since some proxys such as GFE will not cache requests from localhost. Client marks the request as cacheable by setting the cacheable flag in the request context. Longer term this should be driven by the method option specified in the proto file itself.
  2. Client calls CacheableUnaryCall again immediately with the same request and configuration as the previous call.

Client asserts:

  • Both calls were successful
  • The payload body of both responses is the same.

large_unary

This test verifies unary calls succeed in sending messages, and touches on flow control (even if compression is enabled on the channel).

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client calls UnaryCall with:

    {
      response_size: 314159
      payload:{
        body: 271828 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    

Client asserts:

  • call was successful
  • response payload body is 314159 bytes in size
  • clients are free to assert that the response payload body contents are zero and comparing the entire response message against a golden response

client_compressed_unary

This test verifies the client can compress unary messages by sending two unary calls, for compressed and uncompressed payloads. It also sends an initial probing request to verify whether the server supports the CompressedRequest feature by checking if the probing call fails with an INVALID_ARGUMENT status.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client calls UnaryCall with the feature probe, an uncompressed message:

    {
      expect_compressed:{
        value: true
      }
      response_size: 314159
      payload:{
        body: 271828 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
  2. Client calls UnaryCall with the compressed message:

    {
      expect_compressed:{
        value: true
      }
      response_size: 314159
      payload:{
        body: 271828 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
  3. Client calls UnaryCall with the uncompressed message:

    {
      expect_compressed:{
        value: false
      }
      response_size: 314159
      payload:{
        body: 271828 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    

    Client asserts:

    • First call failed with INVALID_ARGUMENT status.
    • Subsequent calls were successful.
    • Response payload body is 314159 bytes in size.
    • Clients are free to assert that the response payload body contents are zeros and comparing the entire response message against a golden response.

server_compressed_unary

This test verifies the server can compress unary messages. It sends two unary requests, expecting the server's response to be compressed or not according to the response_compressed boolean.

Whether compression was actually performed is determined by the compression bit in the response's message flags. Note that some languages may not have access to the message flags, in which case the client will be unable to verify that the response_compressed boolean is obeyed by the server.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client calls UnaryCall with SimpleRequest:

    {
      response_compressed:{
        value: true
      }
      response_size: 314159
      payload:{
        body: 271828 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
    {
      response_compressed:{
        value: false
      }
      response_size: 314159
      payload:{
        body: 271828 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    

    Client asserts:

    • call was successful
    • if supported by the implementation, when response_compressed is true, the response MUST have the compressed message flag set.
    • if supported by the implementation, when response_compressed is false, the response MUST NOT have the compressed message flag set.
    • response payload body is 314159 bytes in size in both cases.
    • clients are free to assert that the response payload body contents are zero and comparing the entire response message against a golden response

client_streaming

This test verifies that client-only streaming succeeds.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client calls StreamingInputCall

  2. Client sends:

    {
      payload:{
        body: 27182 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
  3. Client then sends:

    {
      payload:{
        body: 8 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
  4. Client then sends:

    {
      payload:{
        body: 1828 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
  5. Client then sends:

    {
      payload:{
        body: 45904 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
  6. Client half-closes

Client asserts:

  • call was successful
  • response aggregated_payload_size is 74922

client_compressed_streaming

This test verifies the client can compress requests on per-message basis by performing a two-request streaming call. It also sends an initial probing request to verify whether the server supports the CompressedRequest feature by checking if the probing call fails with an INVALID_ARGUMENT status.

Procedure:

  1. Client calls StreamingInputCall and sends the following feature-probing uncompressed StreamingInputCallRequest message

    {
      expect_compressed:{
        value: true
      }
      payload:{
        body: 27182 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    

    If the call does not fail with INVALID_ARGUMENT, the test fails. Otherwise, we continue.

  2. Client calls StreamingInputCall again, sending the compressed message

    {
      expect_compressed:{
        value: true
      }
      payload:{
        body: 27182 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
  3. And finally, the uncompressed message

    {
      expect_compressed:{
        value: false
      }
      payload:{
        body: 45904 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
  4. Client half-closes

Client asserts:

  • First call fails with INVALID_ARGUMENT.
  • Next calls succeeds.
  • Response aggregated payload size is 73086.

server_streaming

This test verifies that server-only streaming succeeds.

Server features:

      }
      response_parameters:{
        size: 9
      }

        size: 2653
      }
      response_parameters:{
        size: 58979
      }
    }
    

Client asserts:

  • exactly four responses
  • response payload bodies are sized (in order): 31415, 9, 2653, 58979
  • clients are free to assert that the response payload body contents are zero and comparing the entire response messages against golden responses

server_compressed_streaming

This test verifies that the server can compress streaming messages and disable compression on individual messages, expecting the server's response to be compressed or not according to the response_compressed boolean.

Whether compression was actually performed is determined by the compression bit in the response's message flags. Note that some languages may not have access to the message flags, in which case the client will be unable to verify that the response_compressed boolean is obeyed by the server.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client calls StreamingOutputCall with StreamingOutputCallRequest:

    {
      response_parameters:{
        compressed: {
          value: true
        }
        size: 31415
      }
      response_parameters:{

    • response payload bodies are sized (in order): 31415, 92653
    • clients are free to assert that the response payload body contents are zero and comparing the entire response messages against golden responses

ping_pong

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client calls FullDuplexCall with:

    {
      response_parameters:{
        size: 31415
      }
      payload:{
        body: 27182 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
  2. After getting a reply, it sends:

      }
    }
    
  3. After getting a reply, it sends:

    {
      response_parameters:{
        size: 2653
      }
      payload:{

  • exactly four responses
  • response payload bodies are sized (in order): 31415, 9, 2653, 58979
  • clients are free to assert that the response payload body contents are zero and comparing the entire response messages against golden responses

empty_stream

This test verifies that streams support having zero-messages in both directions.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client calls FullDuplexCall and then half-closes

Client asserts:

  • call was successful
  • exactly zero responses

compute_engine_creds

This test is only for cloud-to-prod path.

This test verifies unary calls succeed in sending messages while using Service Credentials from GCE metadata server. The client instance needs to be created with desired oauth scope.

The test uses --default_service_account with GCE service account email and --oauth_scope with the OAuth scope to use. For testing against grpc-test.sandbox.googleapis.com, "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/xapi.zoo" should be passed in as --oauth_scope.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client configures channel to use GCECredentials

  2. Client calls UnaryCall on the channel with:

    {
      response_size: 314159
      payload:{
        body: 271828 bytes of zeros
      }
      fill_username: true
      fill_oauth_scope: true
    }
    

Client asserts:

  • call was successful
  • received SimpleResponse.username equals the value of --default_service_account flag
  • received SimpleResponse.oauth_scope is in --oauth_scope
  • response payload body is 314159 bytes in size
  • clients are free to assert that the response payload body contents are zero and comparing the entire response message against a golden response

jwt_token_creds

This test is only for cloud-to-prod path.

This test verifies unary calls succeed in sending messages while using JWT token (created by the project's key file)

Test caller should set flag --service_account_key_file with the path to json key file downloaded from https://console.developers.google.com. Alternately, if using a usable auth implementation, she may specify the file location in the environment variable GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client configures the channel to use JWTTokenCredentials

  2. Client calls UnaryCall with:

    {
      response_size: 314159
      payload:{
        body: 271828 bytes of zeros
      }
      fill_username: true
    }
    

Client asserts:

  • call was successful
  • received SimpleResponse.username is not empty and is in the json key file used by the auth library. The client can optionally check the username matches the email address in the key file or equals the value of --default_service_account flag.
  • response payload body is 314159 bytes in size
  • clients are free to assert that the response payload body contents are zero and comparing the entire response message against a golden response

oauth2_auth_token

This test is only for cloud-to-prod path and some implementations may run in GCE only.

This test verifies unary calls succeed in sending messages using an OAuth2 token that is obtained out of band. For the purpose of the test, the OAuth2 token is actually obtained from a service account credentials or GCE credentials via the language-specific authorization library.

The difference between this test and the other auth tests is that it first uses the authorization library to obtain an authorization token.

The test

  • uses the flag --service_account_key_file with the path to a json key file downloaded from https://console.developers.google.com. Alternately, if using a usable auth implementation, it may specify the file location in the environment variable GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS, OR if GCE credentials is used to fetch the token, --default_service_account can be used to pass in GCE service account email.
  • uses the flag --oauth_scope for the oauth scope. For testing against grpc-test.sandbox.googleapis.com, "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/xapi.zoo" should be passed as the --oauth_scope.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client uses the auth library to obtain an authorization token

  2. Client configures the channel to use AccessTokenCredentials with the access token obtained in step 1

  3. Client calls UnaryCall with the following message

    {
      fill_username: true
      fill_oauth_scope: true
    }
    

Client asserts:

  • call was successful
  • received SimpleResponse.username is valid. Depending on whether a service account key file or GCE credentials was used, client should check against the json key file or GCE default service account email.
  • received SimpleResponse.oauth_scope is in --oauth_scope

per_rpc_creds

Similar to the other auth tests, this test is only for cloud-to-prod path.

This test verifies unary calls succeed in sending messages using a JWT or a service account credentials set on the RPC.

The test

  • uses the flag --service_account_key_file with the path to a json key file downloaded from https://console.developers.google.com. Alternately, if using a usable auth implementation, it may specify the file location in the environment variable GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS
  • optionally uses the flag --oauth_scope for the oauth scope if implementer wishes to use service account credential instead of JWT credential. For testing against grpc-test.sandbox.googleapis.com, oauth scope "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/xapi.zoo" should be used.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client configures the channel with just SSL credentials

  2. Client calls UnaryCall, setting per-call credentials to JWTTokenCredentials. The request is the following message

    {
      fill_username: true
    }
    

Client asserts:

  • call was successful
  • received SimpleResponse.username is not empty and is in the json key file used by the auth library. The client can optionally check the username matches the email address in the key file.

google_default_credentials

Similar to the other auth tests, this test should only be run against prod servers. Different from some of the other auth tests however, this test may be also run from outside of GCP.

This test verifies unary calls succeed when the client uses GoogleDefaultCredentials. The path to a service account key file in the GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS environment variable may or may not be provided by the test runner. For example, the test runner might set this environment when outside of GCP but keep it unset when on GCP.

The test uses --default_service_account with GCE service account email.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client configures the channel to use GoogleDefaultCredentials

    • Note: the term GoogleDefaultCredentials within the context of this test description refers to an API which encapsulates both "transport credentials" and "call credentials" and which is capable of transport creds auto-selection (including ALTS). Similar APIs involving only auto-selection of OAuth mechanisms might work for this test but aren't the intended subjects.
  2. Client calls UnaryCall with:

    {
      fill_username: true
    }
    

Client asserts:

  • call was successful
  • received SimpleResponse.username matches the value of --default_service_account

compute_engine_channel_credentials

Similar to the other auth tests, this test should only be run against prod servers. Note that this test may only be ran on GCP.

This test verifies unary calls succeed when the client uses ComputeEngineChannelCredentials. All that is needed by the test environment is for the client to be running on GCP.

The test uses --default_service_account with GCE service account email. This email must identify the default service account of the GCP VM that the test is running on.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client configures the channel to use ComputeEngineChannelCredentials

    • Note: the term ComputeEngineChannelCredentials within the context of this test description refers to an API which encapsulates both "transport credentials" and "call credentials" and which is capable of transport creds auto-selection (including ALTS). The exact name of the API may vary per language.
  2. Client calls UnaryCall with:

    {
      fill_username: true
    }
    

Client asserts:

  • call was successful
  • received SimpleResponse.username matches the value of --default_service_account

custom_metadata

This test verifies that custom metadata in either binary or ascii format can be sent as initial-metadata by the client and as both initial- and trailing-metadata by the server.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. The client attaches custom metadata with the following keys and values:

    key: "x-grpc-test-echo-initial", value: "test_initial_metadata_value"
    key: "x-grpc-test-echo-trailing-bin", value: 0xababab
    

    to a UnaryCall with request:

    {
      response_size: 314159
      payload:{
        body: 271828 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
  2. The client attaches custom metadata with the following keys and values:

    key: "x-grpc-test-echo-initial", value: "test_initial_metadata_value"
    key: "x-grpc-test-echo-trailing-bin", value: 0xababab
    

    to a FullDuplexCall with request:

    {
      response_parameters:{
        size: 314159
      }
      payload:{
        body: 271828 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    

    and then half-closes

Client asserts:

  • call was successful
  • metadata with key "x-grpc-test-echo-initial" and value "test_initial_metadata_value"is received in the initial metadata for calls in Procedure steps 1 and 2.
  • metadata with key "x-grpc-test-echo-trailing-bin" and value 0xababab is received in the trailing metadata for calls in Procedure steps 1 and 2.

status_code_and_message

This test verifies unary calls succeed in sending messages, and propagate back status code and message sent along with the messages.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client calls UnaryCall with:

    {
      response_status:{
        code: 2
        message: "test status message"
      }
    }
    
  2. Client calls FullDuplexCall with:

    {
      response_status:{
        code: 2
        message: "test status message"
      }
    }
    

    and then half-closes

Client asserts:

  • received status code is the same as the sent code for both Procedure steps 1 and 2
  • received status message is the same as the sent message for both Procedure steps 1 and 2

special_status_message

This test verifies Unicode and whitespace is correctly processed in status message. "\t" is horizontal tab. "\r" is carriage return. "\n" is line feed.

Server features:

Procedure:

  1. Client calls UnaryCall with:

    {
      response_status:{
        code: 2
        message: "\t\ntest with whitespace\r\nand Unicode BMP ☺ and non-BMP 😈\t\n"
      }
    }
    

Client asserts:

  • received status code is the same as the sent code for Procedure step 1
  • received status message is the same as the sent message for Procedure step 1, including all whitespace characters

    {
      payload:{
        body: 27182 bytes of zeros
      }
    }
    
  2. Client waits

Client asserts:

  • Call completed with status DEADLINE_EXCEEDED.

concurrent_large_unary

Status: TODO

Client performs 1000 large_unary tests in parallel on the same channel.

Flow control. Pushback at client for large messages (TODO: fix name)

Status: TODO

This test verifies that a client sending faster than a server can drain sees pushback (i.e., attempts to send succeed only after appropriate delays).

Experimental Tests

These tests are not yet standardized, and are not yet implemented in all languages. Therefore they are not part of our interop matrix.

rpc_soak

The client performs many large_unary RPCs in sequence over the same channel. The number of RPCs is configured by the experimental flag, soak_iterations.

channel_soak

The client performs many large_unary RPCs in sequence. Before each RPC, it tears down and rebuilds the channel. The number of RPCs is configured by the experimental flag, soak_iterations.

This tests puts stress on several gRPC components; the resolver, the load balancer, and the RPC hotpath.

long_lived_channel

The client performs a number of large_unary RPCs over a single long-lived channel with a fixed but configurable interval between each RPC.

TODO Tests

High priority:

Propagation of status code and message (yangg)

Multiple thousand simultaneous calls on same Channel (ctiller)

Metadata: client headers, server headers + trailers, binary+ascii

Normal priority:

Cancel before start (ctiller)

Cancel after sent first message (ctiller)

Cancel after received headers (ctiller)

Timeout but completed before expire (zhaoq)

Multiple thousand simultaneous calls timeout on same Channel (ctiller)

Lower priority:

Flow control. Pushback at client for large messages (abhishek)

Flow control. Pushback at server for large messages (abhishek)

Going over max concurrent streams doesn't fail (client controls itself) (abhishek)

RPC method not implemented (yangg)

Multiple thousand simultaneous calls on different Channels (ctiller)

Failed TLS hostname verification (ejona?)

Large amount of headers to cause CONTINUATIONs; 63K of 'X's, all in one header.

To priorize:

Start streaming RPC but don't send any requests, server responds

Postponed Tests

Resilience to buggy servers: These tests would verify that a client application isn't affected negatively by the responses put on the wire by a buggy server (e.g. the client library won't make the application crash).

Reconnect after transport failure

Reconnect backoff

Fuzz testing

Server

Servers implement various named features for clients to test with. Server features are orthogonal. If a server implements a feature, it is always available for clients. Names are simple descriptions for developer communication and tracking.

Servers should accept these arguments:

  • --port=PORT

    • The port to listen on. For example, "8080"
  • --use_tls=BOOLEAN

    • Whether to use a plaintext or encrypted connection

Servers must support TLS with ALPN. They should use server1.pem for their certificate.

EmptyCall

Server implements EmptyCall which immediately returns the empty message.

UnaryCall

Server implements UnaryCall which immediately returns a SimpleResponse with a payload body of size SimpleRequest.response_size bytes and type as appropriate for the SimpleRequest.response_type. If the server does not support the response_type, then it should fail the RPC with INVALID_ARGUMENT.

CacheableUnaryCall

Server gets the default SimpleRequest proto as the request. The content of the request is ignored. It returns the SimpleResponse proto with the payload set to current timestamp. The timestamp is an integer representing current time with nanosecond resolution. This integer is formatted as ASCII decimal in the response. The format is not really important as long as the response payload is different for each request. In addition it adds

  1. cache control headers such that the response can be cached by proxies in the response path. Server should be behind a caching proxy for this test to pass. Currently we set the max-age to 60 seconds.

CompressedResponse

When the client sets response_compressed to true, the server's response is sent back compressed. Note that response_compressed is present on both SimpleRequest (unary) and StreamingOutputCallRequest (streaming).

CompressedRequest

When the client sets expect_compressed to true, the server expects the client request to be compressed. If it's not, it fails the RPC with INVALID_ARGUMENT. Note that response_compressed is present on both SimpleRequest (unary) and StreamingOutputCallRequest (streaming).

StreamingInputCall

Server implements StreamingInputCall which upon half close immediately returns a StreamingInputCallResponse where aggregated_payload_size is the sum of all request payload bodies received.

StreamingOutputCall

Server implements StreamingOutputCall by replying, in order, with one StreamingOutputCallResponse for each ResponseParameters in StreamingOutputCallRequest. Each StreamingOutputCallResponse should have a payload body of size ResponseParameters.size bytes, as specified by its respective ResponseParameters. After sending all responses, it closes with OK.

FullDuplexCall

Server implements FullDuplexCall by replying, in order, with one StreamingOutputCallResponse for each ResponseParameters in each StreamingOutputCallRequest. Each StreamingOutputCallResponse should have a payload body of size ResponseParameters.size bytes, as specified by its respective ResponseParameters. After receiving half close and sending all responses, it closes with OK.

Echo Status

When the client sends a response_status in the request payload, the server closes the stream with the status code and message contained within said response_status. The server will not process any further messages on the stream sent by the client. This can be used by clients to verify correct handling of different status codes and associated status messages end-to-end.

Echo Metadata

When the client sends metadata with the key "x-grpc-test-echo-initial" with its request, the server sends back exactly this key and the corresponding value back to the client as part of initial metadata. When the client sends metadata with the key "x-grpc-test-echo-trailing-bin" with its request, the server sends back exactly this key and the corresponding value back to the client as trailing metadata.

Observe ResponseParameters.interval_us

In StreamingOutputCall and FullDuplexCall, server delays sending a StreamingOutputCallResponse by the ResponseParameters' interval_us for that particular response, relative to the last response sent. That is, interval_us acts like a sleep before sending the response and accumulates from one response to the next.

Interaction with flow control is unspecified.

Echo Auth Information

Status: Pending

Echo Authenticated Username

If a SimpleRequest has fill_username=true and that request was successfully authenticated, then the SimpleResponse should have username filled with the canonical form of the authenticated source. The canonical form is dependent on the authentication method, but is likely to be a base 10 integer identifier or an email address.

Echo OAuth scope

If a SimpleRequest has fill_oauth_scope=true and that request was successfully authenticated via OAuth, then the SimpleResponse should have oauth_scope filled with the scope of the method being invoked.

Although a general server-side feature, most test servers won't implement this feature. The TLS server grpc-test.sandbox.googleapis.com:443 supports this feature. It requires at least the OAuth scope https://www.googleapis.com/auth/xapi.zoo for authentication to succeed.

Discussion:

Ideally, this would be communicated via metadata and not in the request/response, but we want to use this test in code paths that don't yet fully communicate metadata.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
