Multi-Environment Software Testing on the Grid

Universidade Federal de Campina Grande - Brasil


ISSTA 2006

There are applications with very time consuming test phases

Rothermel, Untch, and Chu (7 weeks)

Smart Alarms (36 hours)

Configuration mistakes in software installation are the major reasons for computer system errors

Pointed by Brown and Patterson in 2001

Observed in two surveys we have conducted with the grid community along the last years

Motivation


ISSTA 2006

Motivation

  • Grid applications are supposed to be correctly executed on highly heterogeneous and dynamic environment

  • Traditional ways to qualify test processes are based on code coverage metrics


ISSTA 2006

Speeding up Test Execution

Distribute

Prioritize

Select


ISSTA 2006

Dealing with Configuration Mistakes

  • Build several different test environments

    • Expensive

    • Time consuming

    • Does not cover different user and administrative policies


ISSTA 2006

Agenda

  • Motivation

  • To present a solution to test grid applications

  • How to describe a test of a grid application

  • Conclusions and Future Work


ISSTA 2006

Environmental Coverage

  • Development environments are controlled

  • Test applications designed to run on heterogeneous environments in a set of different production environments


ISSTA 2006

GridUnit

Speeds up test execution by exploring the high levels of parallelism provided by the grid

Provides a way to detect configuration mistakes by exploring the heterogeneous nature of the grid:

Shared by multiple users

Without a centralized control unit

Composed by multiple administrative domains (virtual organizations)


ISSTA 2006

GridUnit Architecture


ISSTA 2006

InGriD

  • Builds environments in grid machines

  • Manages all environments deployed in the grid

  • It is an extension of Smart Framework for Work Group (SmartFrog), developed by HP Labs

    • Deal with grid machines

Testing a Real Application

  • The application creates a web album from a set of digital images

    • Time consuming

  • Photo editing is independent from each other

  • Grid nodes have:

    • Sun JVM 5.0 and JRockit 5.0

    • Intel Pentium 4 and Intel Itanium 2

    • 4 environments

OurGrid

  • Largest computation grid in production in Brazil today

    • About 30 organizations (UFCG, USP, PUC-RS, UFPE, PUC-Minas, UFF, UFPB, UFBA, UCB, LNCC, UNISANTOS, ...)

    •  300 machines


GridUnit + OurGrid

  • Does not require any source code modification

  • Open Source

  • Free to use and free to join

Conclusions and Future Work

  • We presented a proposal of a solution to improve the confidence of heterogeneous environment applications

    • InGriD: to describe and deploy test environments

    • GridUnit: to coordinate and monitor execution of test sets

  • Environmental coverage metric is complementary and orthogonal to test coverage metrics

  • Formalization of the environmental coverage metric for software testing
