Welcome to the Ballista OS Robustness Test Suite. The purpose of this test suite is to facilitate testing POSIX function robustness. The test suite:
This software package can be ported to most POSIX-based operating systems with relative ease, and is useful for comparing competitive operating systems or different versions of the same operating system. This "do it yourself " utility does not add any additional testing capabilities to the standard ballista client. Instead the purpose is to provide a friendlier option for testing POSIX systems.
Funding for this project has long since terminated. We regret that we can offer no support for this package. It runs on a fairly old version of tools and will almost certainly require editing and porting work. Nonetheless, this is a complete release and is a starting point for anyone adventureous enough to have a go at it.
You must execute this test suite on a POSIX-compliant system (i.e., on a "Unix" system). Sorry, but Microsoft Windows (in any versions) is not supported. Beyond that, there are certain utilities and programs upon which the test suite is dependent.
