Scalable Test Platform

The Scalable Test Platform provides a test framework in which to exercise Linux kernel builds. Patches can be created and built through the Patch Lifecycle Manager (PLM), and then run through your choice of performance and scalability tests. Kernel patches are loaded and built against stock kernels, and tests are executed on your selected hardware platform.
