Getting Started

Fabric-Test provides two tools for testing Fabric itself: The Operator tool and PTE

  • The Operator tool is used to deploy Fabric networks. It can be used to deploy Fabric to your local machine using Docker, or to Kubernetes
  • PTE, or Performance Traffic Engine is used to Invoke and Query chaincode through a network deployed using the Operator tool


While Fabric-Test provides a utility for installing most of its dependencies, you do need a few basic tools to get started:

  • Go 1.18 or later
  • Node 16 or later
  • Java 8 or later (if using Java chaincode)
  • Docker
  • Docker-Compose
  • Curl and Make

Once you've installed these simple dependencies you simply execute make pre-reqs from the root of the repo and Fabric-Test will bootstrap the rest of the dependencies and install the required NPM packages.

Environment variables

Make sure $GOPATH/bin (if GOPATH is set) or $HOME/go/bin is in your $PATH so that the go tools can be found.

If you run the make targets from the project root directory, fabric-test/bin with the Fabric binaries will get added to PATH and fabric-test/config with Fabric node config files will get added to FABRIC_CFG_PATH. If you run the tests directly (outside of make) you will need to set these variables yourself.

Running Test Suites with Make

You can run the automated test suites with a Makefile target given below. This handles all the steps for you as the procedure installs all the prerequisites and executes the test suite in the targeted directory. Simply call make and target one of the test suites in the regression directory:

  make regression/smoke     # Cleans environment, updates submodules, clones & builds
                            # fabric & fabric-ca images, executes Smoke tests from
                            # regression/smoke folder.

Tools Used to Execute Tests


Please see the README located in the tools/operator directory for more detailed information for using the Operator to launch Fabric networks, administer them, and execute actions from test-input files to reconfigure the network, disrupt the network, or use PTE to send transactions.

Performance Traffic Engine

Please see the README located in the tools/PTE directory for more detailed information for using the Performance Traffic Engine to drive transactions through a Fabric network.
