Linux Test Project

Linux Test Project is a joint project started by SGI, OSDL, and Bull developed and maintained by IBM, Cisco, Fujitsu, SUSE, Red Hat, Oracle, and others. The project goal is to deliver tests that validate the reliability, robustness, and stability of Linux. Currently it contains more than 1000 syscall test cases, I/O and AIO stress test cases, a few Linux kernel device drivers, a well maintained fork of the Open POSIX Testsuite, a real-time test suite, and more.
