Fault injection

Mentors: Joel Sherrill

Students: Past, Present, and Potential Students

Status: Initialized. More at SOCIS' wiki page

Introduction: Introduce the main concepts around the project: Theoretical preliminaries, preexisting RTEMS capabilities used or augmented (if any), important concepts, problems/needs the project will try to solve/satisfy.

Goal: Help users get RTEMS certified to meet their needs:

  1. project deliverables (code, docs, testing),

Code: python script to run fault-injection tool to acheive same testing goals as:

Docs: Wiki page and README for how to run the tool

Testing: the student's work will be evaluated on whether following the directions on the README and wiki produces the desired test results.

  1. required/suggested methodology

Use an existing free and open software

Use python to invoke it correctly.

  1. standards of quality,

Runs an Linux and Windows...

Produces a report like

  1. possible goal extensions beyond the main objective.

Have the out-put go into a web-page format

  • Relevant failures: NOT Most of the report is junk failures. They configure their test

case with more objects than fit into memory and the BSP locked up about 3 lines into the C code. They wrote this failure up more than 1000 times.

  • By directory or by capability reporting... smaller pieces that are easier to analayze

Requirements: List the requirements and level of expertise you estimate are required by the developer tackling this project will have to have: Required level of programming language(s), specific areas of RTEMS or tools, level of familiarity with RTEMS, cross-development, GNU/Linux, etx., development/documentation/testing tools, mathematical/algorithmic background, other desirable skills.

Resources: Current RTEMS developers, papers, etc that may help you in this project.

Miscellaneous Sections

As the project progresses, you will need to add build instructions, etc and this page will evolve from a project description into a HOWTO.


Other sections: If you have more to say about the project that doesn't fit in the proposed sections of this template, feel free to add other sections at will.
