The Linux Test Project is an organization aimed at improving the Linux kernel by bringing test automation to the kernel testing effort. To meet this objective, the Linux Test Project develops test suites that run on multiple platforms for validating the reliability, robustness, and stability of the Linux kernel. The LTP test suite was designed to be easy to use, portable, and flexible enough that tests could be added without requiring the developer to use functions provided by the LTP test driver. This talk will cover what the Linux Test Project is and what we are doing to help improve Linux. I also plan to talk about the features provided by the test harness, the structure of the test cases, and how test cases can be written to contribute to the Linux Test Project.
