Linux Test Project

About the Linux Test Project

The Linux Test Project is a joint project with SGI, IBM, OSDL, and Bull with a
goal to deliver test suites to the open source community that validate the 
reliability, robustness, and stability of Linux. The Linux Test Project is a 
collection of tools for testing the Linux kernel and related features. Our goal 
is to improve the Linux kernel by bring test automation to the kernel testing 
effort. Interested open source contributors are encouraged to join the project.

In the Package
Here is a short description of what is included in this package

	Installation documentation and quick start guide

	This document

	Credits to those who have contributed to the project.

	GNU Public License

	An incomplete list of changes to the project.  We will try harder to
	keep this up to date.

	Top level make file for LTP.
	A simple script to run all of the packaged tests in sequential order and
	report the over all result.
	A simple script to run all the diskio tests that pertain to the CD-ROM and
	floppy disk file systems.
	A simple script to run all the network related tests that require another 
	remote machine.

	Documentation for the project including man pages for some of the
	tools & library functions, as well as descriptions of every test.

	The include and lib directories contain headers and codes for common
	routines used by many of the tests.  We have tried to keep this to a

	Contains all tests that run under the LTP as well as the "bin" directory,
	which has hardlinks to all the test executables. 

	It houses command lists that are used by pan for automated testing.

	The pan directory contains a simple, lightweight test harness.  pan
	has the ability to run tests randomly and in parallel.  See pan's man
	page for more information.

Be careful with these tests!

Don't run them on production systems.  Growfiles, doio, and iogen in particular
stress the I/O capabilities of systems and while they should not cause problems
on properly functioning systems, they are intended to find (or cause) problems.
