[http://www.linux-kvm.org/page/KVM-Autotest kvm-autotest] is an effort by KVM developers to create a suite of regression tests for KVM.
 
  
Fedora virtualization testers can help improve KVM by running kvm-autotest on their own hardware. The kvm-autotest wiki contains some [http://www.linux-kvm.org/page/KVM-Autotest/Client_Install instructions] on doing this, but to get started quickly try the following:

Fedora virtualization testers can help improve KVM by running Avocado-VT tests on their own machines.  
  
<pre>

= Avocado and Avocado-VT =
$> yum install qemu-system-x86 qemu-img
 
  
$> mkdir -p ~/autotest/iso && cd ~/autotest/iso
+
These are the current community projects that have come from a long heritage, including virt-test and KVM-Autotest.
$> wget http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/8/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-8-i386-DVD.iso
 
$> cd ..
 
$> git clone git://github.com/ehabkost/autotest.git
 
  
$> mkdir -p /tmp/kvm_autotest_root/{iso/linux,images}

Avocado is a generic testing framework, while Avocado-VT adds support for Virtualization testing (a continuation of virt-test).
$> ln -s ~/autotest/iso/Fedora-8-i386-DVD.iso /tmp/kvm_autotest_root/iso/linux/

$> cd kvm-autotest/client/tests/kvm

To get started with Avocado-VT please visit:
$> cp kvm_tests.cfg.sample kvm_tests.cfg
 
  
# FIXME: this is lame, just disables kvm_install

http://avocado-vt.readthedocs.io
$> sed -e 's/^\(r = job.run_test\)/#\1/' < control > control.fedora
 
</pre>
 
  
and then as root:

https://github.com/avocado-framework/avocado-vt
  
<pre>
 
$> ../../bin/autotest ./control.fedora
 
</pre>
 
  
Any errors encountered should be reported via bugzilla.

== Common Problem:==

https://github.com/avocado-framework/avocado
If kvm_autotest fails with an error similar the one below it may be the fact your machine is slower than the one use to generate the step files:
 
 
 
<pre>
 
20090429-143237 Fedora.8.32.install: ERROR: barrier_2: Barrier failed at step 3 after 85 seconds (timeout)
 
</pre>
 
 
 
you can use the step editor to edit the step file and increase the time-out:
 
 
 
<pre>
 
[kvm_runtest_2]# ./stepeditor.py steps/Fedora-8-i386.steps
 
</pre>

Fedora virtualization testers can help improve KVM by running Avocado-VT tests on their own machines.

Avocado and Avocado-VT

These are the current community projects that have come from a long heritage, including virt-test and KVM-Autotest.

Avocado is a generic testing framework, while Avocado-VT adds support for Virtualization testing (a continuation of virt-test).

To get started with Avocado-VT please visit:
