OpenBSD regress results all i386 amd64 armv7 arm64 powerpc64 latest

All tests in /usr/src/regress are run every day by cron(8). The test machines are automatically installed from an i386 or amd64 snapshot, the current source tree is checked out and necessary packages are installed. The results are shown over the time in a HTML table. Complete log output from the setup and test run exist. Tests are skipped if packages are missing, if they are specific for another architecture, or if additional remote machines are missing. The framework to run everything is available at github.

OpenBSD cvs checkout performance all latest

An OpenBSD release is installed. Based on that, the kernel sources for a specific date are checked out from cvs. A new kernel is built, installed, and performace tests are executed with that. The checkout, build, test is iterated in a loop while advancing the cvs checkout date in steps. Currently iperf TCP and UDP, tcpbench TCP and kernel build times are measured. To reach over incompatibilities between the kernel and user land or build enviroment, so called build quirks are used. Then the necessary parts of the source tree are updated or patched. After building and installing the relevant tools, checkout and building kernel continues.

OpenBSD test suite os-test posixtestsuite


The os-test test suite of the Sortix project is designed to find differences in system call behavior of various POSIX operating systems. Run the tests during OpenBSD regress and display the results every day. The date in the table is taken from the snapshot kernel's build time.

The open POSIX test suite provides good test coverage for system calls. It tries to compile varoius test programs and runs a lot of binaries. The output of the build and run with a current OpenBSD snapshot is reported. The test suite is mature and unmaintained, so the result is not significant. The important part is that it executes many error paths in the kernel and libc.
