Subject: [Announce] Linux Test Project
SGI would like to announce the Linux Test Project. The goal of
this project is to create a formalized test system for the Linux
We have released a set of 96 tests on the project's website
These tests exercise file systems and system calls and can be used
for stress testing or sanity tests.
We would like to discuss the following topics with the
- The testing philosophy that is most important to the kernel
developers. What approach best fits the development process?
Regression? Functional? Stress? Performance?
- What is needed immediately? Building a test suite for the
kernel is going to take time. What tests or tools are most
- We need to plan a development road map that works with the
Linux kernel development road map.
We are hoping to hold an unscheduled BOF at LinuxWorld on
Wednesday. Aaron Laffin and Richard Logan will be there to discuss
these issues. If you are interested in testing and are attending
LinuxWorld, please keep an eye open for our BOF.
