Kernel Testing

Desktop and Application Testing

When to do testing, and what to test?

Keep tabs on software updates, and assemble a list of them (this can be automated). Then, periodically, go through the items on that list. This is per application testing only. Some applications may need to be tested in combination with others.

  • Automated testing for making sure all applications are able to start.
  • Automated testing for the most common workflows (audio specifically)
  • Manual testing is less structured and lets you find wierder bugs

important variables

  • Hardware (CPU, GPU, Audio device, etc)
  • Graphic Drivers (free vs proprietary)

Performance Testing

  • Automated kernel testing with different configs used on the kernel (audio and kernel testing separately)
  • Automated process testing to measure impact of running services on audio performance (audio testing)
  • Automated rtirq testing
