SGI would like to announce the Linux Test Project. The goal of this
project is to create a formalized test system for the Linux kernel.
We have released a set of 96 tests on the project's website
(http://oss.sgi.com/projects/ltp/). 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 community.
- 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 important?
- We need to plan a development road map that works with the Linux
kernel development road map.
