Welcome to argus’s documentation!

argus is a framework for writing complex integration tests, for code that needs to run under various different operating systems. The tests themselves are running on a host, while the code that is tested runs into virtual machine instances. The underlying technology for spinning up new machines can be anything, as long as a wrapper is written for it. We’re using for now OpenStack based backends.

The project is actually used to test cloudbase-init, a portable multi-cloud initialization service, targeted to Windows platforms.
