you can run tempest tests by directly navigating into the tests folder.. If you want to run api based tests, just go to

/your_tempest_folder/tempest/api/identity ( or any service that you want to run )

and all you have to do is

nosetests -v test_( any test .py that you find in the relevant folders )

Log will be stored under name tempest.log in each folder.

Example.. I have a structure like this

sandy/tests/tempest/api/compute/admin/ ( and a bunch of tests )

Now i will cd sandy/tests/tempest/api/compute/admin/

and run

nosetests -v

You will get test results after that.

PS:- Make sure u edit tempest.conf to reflect to your environment ( it will be in /etc/tempest.conf)
