Last LUG and at other events I have been getting questions about additional testing I
perform on Lustre patches before accepting them. While explaining it in general in person
when asked, I finally came up with a written Howto
that I placed in the wiki at
Now, I've been doing this for a couple of years, so certain details that are
obvious for me and I take for granted might be less obvious for people exposed to all of
this for the first time. So now might be a good time to
ask away your questions so that the document could be improved.
Also, I wanted some visibility for this addition in the hopes that more people would
start doing stuff like this and perhaps even enhance the technique so that the Lustre
becomes even more stable and robust.
And additionally it would be great if others share their own cool testing techniques
that might be deployed by others.
