TestCsc

class lsst.ts.salobj.TestCsc(index: int, config_dir: Optional[Union[str, pathlib.Path]] = None, initial_state: lsst.ts.salobj.sal_enums.State = State.STANDBY, override: str = '', simulation_mode: int = 0)

Bases: lsst.ts.salobj.configurable_csc.ConfigurableCsc

A simple CSC intended for unit testing.

Supported commands:

  • setScalars and setArrays: output the provided data using the corresponding event and telemetry topics. Note that this violates the convention that telemetry is output at regular intervals, but it makes unit tests much easier to write.

  • wait: wait for the specified amount of time, and, if requested, raise an exception. One use for this is to test command timeout by specifying a long wait and waiting a shorter time for the command to finish. Another use is to test multiple simultaneous commands, since wait supports this.

  • The standard state transition commands do the usual thing and output the summaryState event. The exitControl command shuts the CSC down.

Parameters
indexint

Index of Test component; each unit test method should use a different index.

config_dirstr, optional

Path to configuration files.

initial_statesalobj.State, optional

The initial state of the CSC. Typically one of:

  • salobj.State.ENABLED if you want the CSC immediately usable.

  • salobj.State.STANDBY if you want full emulation of a CSC.

overridestr, optional

Configuration override file to apply if initial_state is State.DISABLED or State.ENABLED.

simulation_modeint, optional

Simulation mode. The only allowed value is 0.

Raises
ValueError

If config_dir is not a directory or initial_state is invalid.

salobj.ExpectedError

If simulation_mode is invalid. Note: you will only see this error if you await start_task.

Notes

Unlike a normal CSC this one does not output telemetry at regular intervals. Instead, in order to simplify unit tests, it outputs the arrays and scalars telemetry topics in reponse to the setArrays or setScalars command (just like the arrays and scalars events). That makes it more predictable when this data will appear. Note that the heartbeat event is output at regular intervals, as for any CSC.

Also, unlike most normal configurable CSCs, this one does not need to be configured in order to be used (though self.config will be None). Thus it is safe to start this CSC in the salobj.State.ENABLED state.

Methods Documentation

classmethod add_arguments(parser: argparse.ArgumentParser) None

Add arguments to the parser created by make_from_cmd_line.

Parameters
parserargparse.ArgumentParser

The argument parser.

Notes

If you override this method then you should almost certainly override add_kwargs_from_args as well.

classmethod add_kwargs_from_args(args: argparse.Namespace, kwargs: Dict[str, Any]) None

Add constructor keyword arguments based on parsed arguments.

Parameters
argsargparse.Namespace

Parsed command.

kwargsdict

Keyword argument dict for the constructor. Update this based on args. The index argument will already be present if relevant.

Notes

If you override this method then you should almost certainly override add_arguments as well.

async classmethod amain(index: Optional[Union[int, enum.IntEnum, bool]], **kwargs: Any) None

Make a CSC from command-line arguments and run it.

Parameters
indexint, enum.IntEnum, True, or None

If the CSC is indexed, do one of the following:

  • Specify True to make index a required command-line argument that accepts any nonzero index.

  • Specify an enum.IntEnum class to make index a required command-line argument that only accepts the enum values.

  • Specify a non-zero integer to use that index. This is rare; if the CSC is indexed then the user should usually be allowed to specify the index.

If the CSC is not indexed, specify None or 0.

**kwargsdict, optional

Additional keyword arguments for your CSC’s constructor.

as_dict(data: Any, fields: Sequence[str]) Dict[str, Any]

Return the specified fields from a data struct as a dict.

Parameters
dataany

The data to copy.

fieldslist [str]

The names of the fields of data to copy.

assert_arrays_equal(arrays1: Any, arrays2: Any) None

Assert that two arrays data structs are equal.

The types need not match; each struct can be command, event or telemetry data, or a dict of field: value.

assert_enabled(action: str = '') None

Assert that an action that requires ENABLED state can be run.

Parameters
actionstr, optional

Action attempted. Not needed if this is called at the beginning of a do_... method, since the user will know what command was called.

assert_scalars_equal(scalars1: Any, scalars2: Any) None

Assert that two scalars data structs are equal.

The types need not match; each struct can be command, event or telemetry data, or a dict of field: value.

Notes

The override field must be one of:

  • The name of a config label or config file

  • The name and version of a config file, formatted as <file_name>:<version>, where the version is a git reference, such as a git tag or commit hash. This form does not support labels.

async close(exception: Optional[Exception] = None, cancel_start: bool = True) None

Shut down, clean up resources and set done_task done.

May be called multiple times. The first call closes the Controller; subsequent calls wait until the Controller is closed.

Subclasses should override close_tasks instead of close, unless you have a good reason to do otherwise.

Parameters
exceptionException, optional

The exception that caused stopping, if any, in which case the self.done_task exception is set to this value. Specify None for a normal exit, in which case the self.done_task result is set to None.

cancel_startbool, optional

Cancel the start task? Leave this true unless calling this from the start task.

Notes

Removes the SAL log handler, calls close_tasks to stop all background tasks, pauses briefly to allow final SAL messages to be sent, then closes the dds domain.

async close_tasks() None

Shut down pending tasks. Called by close.

async configure(config: types.SimpleNamespace) None

Configure the CSC.

Parameters
configobject

The configuration, as described by the config schema, as a struct-like object.

The versions in BaseCsc and ConfigurableCsc do nothing, so if you subclass one of those you do not need to call await super().handle_summary_state().

async implement_simulation_mode(simulation_mode: int) None

Implement going into or out of simulation mode.

Deprecated. See simulation mode for details.

Parameters
simulation_modeint

Requested simulation mode; 0 for normal operation.

Construct a CSC from command line arguments.

Parameters
indexint, enum.IntEnum, True, or None

If the CSC is indexed, do one of the following:

  • Specify True to make index a required command-line argument that accepts any nonzero index.

  • Specify an enum.IntEnum class to make index a required command-line argument that only accepts the enum values.

  • Specify a non-zero integer to use that index. This is rare; if the CSC is indexed then the user should usually be allowed to specify the index.

Returns
types.SimpleNamespace

The validated config as a simple namespace.
