It does actually runs tests in parallel. If you want to explicitly run that command, see this part from Tempest readme: (

It shows you can run tempest tests using the 'testr' tool by running this command: testr run --parallel. If you want to convince yourself further, roughly count the times of the passing tests, and you will find out that the total time displayed for those tests is more than the time elapsed.

Is there any possibility to run same thing using nosetests...?

Thanks a lot for the info, actually i had gone through this doc, before posting the question... but somehow i am not convinced that tempest by default runs the tests in parallel, because i dont see that info in my logs, as it takes each test one-by-one and executes it.

So i wanted to know if there is anyway where i can use those multiprocessor enabled parameter to run testcases

Please suggest on the same.

Thanks, Vinay
