Gerrit suggested this testsuite might be worth including in LTP.
This is a set of test cases the OSDL-DCL Hotplug SIG developed to validate
the CPU hotplug functionality in the kernel. It onlines/offlines CPUs,
checks that top behaves correctly when cpu's appear and disappear, etc.
A summary of the test cases is here:
Additional documentation is included in the tarball.
Note that the first test case caused a crash on x86, so take care if you
run this on x86 systems. It's been tested to work properly on PPC64,
and in theory should run properly on all architectures. I would be very
interested in hearing about failures on other architectures.
