Subject: [PATCH v2 0/8] selftests/resctrl: Add resctrl selftest
Date: Thu, 25 Oct 2018 16:06:58 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1540508826-144502-1-git-send-email-fenghua.yu@intel.com> (raw)

With more and more resctrl features are being added by Intel, AMD
and ARM, a test tool is becoming more and more useful to validate
that both hardware and software functionalities work as expected.

We introduce resctrl selftest to cover resctrl features on both
X86 and ARM architectures. It first implements MBM (Memory Bandwidth
Monitoring) and MBA (Memory Bandwidth Allocation) tests. We can enhance
the selftest tool to include more functionality tests in future.

There is an existing resctrl test suit 'intel_cmt_cat'. But the major
purpose of the tool is to test Intel(R) RDT hardware via writing and
reading MSR registers. It does access resctrl file system; but the
functionalities are very limited. And it doesn't support automatic test
and a lot of manual verifications are involved.

So the selftest tool we are introducing here provides a convenient
tool which does automatic resctrl testing, is easily available in kernel
tree, and will be extended to AMD QoS and ARM MPAM.

The selftest tool is in tools/testing/selftests/resctrl in order to have
generic test code for all architectures.

Changelog:
v2:
- Change code based on comments from Babu Moger
- Clean up other places.
