NFStest provides a set of tools for testing either the NFS client or the NFS server, including the framework for developing more tests. These tools include the following:

  • Process command line arguments
  • Provide functionality for PASS/FAIL
  • Provide test grouping functionality
  • Provide multiple client support
  • Logging mechanism
  • Debug info control

Benefit to Fedora

the inclusion of nfstest benefits Fedora by providing customers with a tool to test NFS functionality and a development platform for creating new NFS tests. It is our hope this will increase adoption of NFSv4 and pNFS.
