The FreeBSD Test Suite

Welcome to FreeBSD Test Suite project!

This project aims to equip FreeBSD with a comprehensive test suite that is easy to run out of the box and during the development of the system. The goal of the test suite is to assist both developers and users in assessing the quality of FreeBSD.

The runtime of choice to execute the test suite and generate reports is Kyua. The tests themselves can be written in a variety of languages and are not restricted to using a specific framework; the recommendation is to use the ATF libraries bundled into the base tree, but other supported options exist.


$ pkg install kyua
$ kyua test -k /usr/tests/Kyuafile


The following goals are specific to the FreeBSD test suite:
