Systematic Testing of Fault Handling Code in Linux Kernel - Alexey Khoroshilov, Russian Academy of Sciences

The talk presents a method to extend coverage of existing tests by systematic and targeted fault injection in Linux kernel. The method is developed within Linux File System Verification project that aims to provide an exhaustive test suite for Linux file system drivers.

The presented method of fault injection allows to systematically simulate faults dedicated to a file system driver under test (faults of memory allocation requests, bio layer, etc.). That means it does not introduce faults into requests coming from other modules and it implements systematic iteration of fault situations versus a prevailing random approach.

The talk presents results of experiments with the method, defines requirements to tests so they can be used with the method and discusses lessons learnt so far.
