Putting LTP to test - Validating both the Linux kernel and test-cases

Subrata Modak (subrata@linux.vnet.ibm.com)

"The Linux Test Project (LTP) is receiving renewed interest and attention due to increased focus on testing and integration of Linux components from several projects in the Linux Ecosystem. LTP has not only discovered bugs in the Linux kernel, but also in other components such as libraries and documentation bugs in the man pages.

In this paper, we cover our experiences in this area and also discuss adoption of newer technologies for static analysis of existing test cases. We use this approach to reduce any errors in test cases (leading to better end automation of Linux testing). We also analyze the new LTP code using various test metrics, and, look at the requirements for allowing the test cases to handle errors introduced by fault injection."
