ABSTRACT

In this paper, we propose a general-purpose fault injection system for Linux loadable kernel modules. The fault injection system enables software developers and testers to inject various kinds of faults easily into user-specified kernel modules in user-controlled manner. The proposed system also provides workload generation in order to make injected faults be exposed effectively, By experiments, we show that the fault injection system correctly injects faults into Linux kernel modules. The proposed system can be utilized as a useful tool for testing during kernel module development It is also useful for studies on kernel behaviour analysis and fault isolation and recovery.
