There are so many errors in the neutron logs for false negatives that I can't really tell what could be causing the failures, see related bug 1455320 and related bug 1477190.

Henry, can you triage this one and have someone have a crack at fixing it once you've identified the cause? Thanks!

Is that logstash query correct? It's hitting on some DEBUG logs.

When I search for SSHExecCommandFailed I get no hits.

Using Matt's query from #3, there are 813 hits in the last 7 days here, though it's a bit sporadic. Henry, any updates on this one given the number of hits it's seeing?

Searching for "Failed to ping IP: 2003::1 via a ssh connection from:" results in 45 or more hits for a single failure since there are about that many retries before the test gives up. So the real hit rate is less than 20 in the last 7 days.

Nevertheless, I will look into this issue which as noted now seems to be in the test_dhcp6_stateless_from_os test.

weirdly enough none of them appear on Neutron changes...

I mean for those that run the gate-tempest-dsvm-neutron-full job only.

Adjusting the title as it's no longer relevant.

summary: - neutron test_multi_prefix_slaac failing in the gate with ping failures
- starting around 7/22
+ test_dhcp6_stateless_from_os fails to ping intermittently
