Testing

GlusterFS source contains some functional tests under tests/ directory. All these tests are run against every patch submitted for review. If you want your patch to be tested, please add a .t test file as part of your patch submission. You can also submit a patch to only add a .t file for the test case you are aware of.

To run these tests, on your test-machine, just run ./run-tests.sh. Don't run this on a machine where you have 'production' glusterfs is running, as it would blindly kill all gluster processes in each runs.

If you are sending a patch, and want to validate one or few specific tests, then run a single test by running the below command.

  bash# /bin/bash ${path_to_gluster}/tests/basic/rpc-coverage.t

You can also use prove tool if available in your machine, as follows.

  bash# prove -vmfe '/bin/bash' ${path_to_gluster}/tests/basic/rpc-coverage.t
