Linux Test Project January Release Announcement

Robbie Williamson writes "The Linux Test Project test suite has been released. The latest version of the testsuite contains 2,100+ tests for the Linux OS. Our web site also contains other information such as: test results, a Linux test tools matrix, technical papers and HowTos on Linux testing, and a code coverage analysis tool.

Developers from the Linux Test Project co-authored the white paper, "Putting Linux Reliability to the Test". This article documents the test results and analysis of the Linux kernel and other core OS components, including everything from libraries and device drivers to file systems and networking, all under some fairly adverse conditions, over a period of 60 days. You can find the paper at IBM developerWorks.

Release Highlights:

  • Code cleanups by Erik Andersen, Glen Foster, Jay Turner, and Ming Gao.
  • Removal of a memory leak in one of the test harness libraries by Randy Hron.
  • Improvements to allow tests to build and execute under more environments and distributions.

We encourage the community to post results to ltp-results@lists.sf.net, and patches, new tests, or comments/questions to ltp-list@lists.sf.net."
