[Pulp-dev] Pulp multinode testing

I think there are two ways to approach it, both valuable:

1) be able to test a Pulp deployment without regard to how it is deployed.
Don't care how many machines are involved or which services are running
where. This will help us validate new and interesting deployment
approaches, such as a container-based deployment. Any admin who automates a
multi-node deployment could fire up a test environment and validate their

2) test specific features relevant to multi-node deployment. This could be
challenging, but may be worthwhile. I suggest listing specific multi-node
behaviors you want to test, and prioritize each on its own. Examples:
- Failover of celerybeat and pulp_resource_manager
- Seeing services on all machines in the status API
- using the same credentials to hit the REST API on multiple machines
- retrieve the same content from multiple machines
- run the DB and/or broker on a separate machine

Which multi-node features you want to test, and how, will inform what
deployment model you decide to focus on.
