Session Abstract

The LISA project provides a toolkit that supports regression testing and interactive analysis of Linux kernel behavior. LISA stands for Linux Integrated/Interactive System Analysis. LISA’s goal is to help Linux kernel developers measure the impact of modifications in core parts of the kernel.

Integration with QEMU emulator allow developers to test wide variety of hardware configurations including ARM architecture and complex NUMA topologies even without ARM hardware.
Our approach helps developers to cross compile kernel, install it on pre-configured VM and test it.
Our main focus is on kernel scheduler behavior on a complex NUMA topologies and large core counts.
However, our solution is generic and can be used for other purposes.
