Not everything a test script can do is easily done within a test script;
sometimes it makes a lot more sense to write auxiliary program in C and have
the test script call them. Auxiliary commands can be found in the src/
directory and in other packages.
Tests wanting to use an auxiliary program found in the src/ directory should
note the dependency with:
_require_test_program "<program-name>"
- af_unix -- Create an AF_UNIX socket
- dmerror -- fault injection block device control
- fsync-err -- tests fsync error reporting after failed writeback
- log-writes/replay-log -- Replay log from device mapper log-writes target
- open_by_handle -- open_by_handle_at syscall exercise
- stat_test -- statx syscall exercise
- t_dir_type -- print directory entries and their file type
- xfs_io -- General I/O operation exercise
The af_unix program creates an AF_UNIX socket at the given location.
dmerror is a program for creating, destroying and controlling a
fault injection device. The device can be set up as initially
working and then flip to throwing errors for testing purposes.
Specialized program for testing how the kernel reports errors that
occur during writeback. Works in conjunction with the dmerror script
in tools/ to write data to a device, and then force it to fail
writeback and test that errors are reported during fsync and cleared
Specialized program for replaying a write log that was recorded by
device mapper log-writes target. The tools is used to perform crash
consistency tests, allowing to run an arbitrary check tool (fsck) at
specified checkpoints in the write log.
The open_by_handle program exercises the open_by_handle_at() system
call. It can check if file handles are valid or stale after certain
filesystem operations.

The stat_test program is primarily designed to exercise the statx()
system call. It can check statx() against fstatat() and it can
compare and check various file attributes.
See also:
The t_dir_type program exercises the getdents64() system call.
It prints directory entry names returned from getdents64() and
thier d_type, optionally filtered by type or by inode number.
The xfs_io program can be found in the xfsprogs package and can be used
to perform sequences of I/O commands, though it is limited to what it
can do on open files.
xfs_io is a debugging tool that is aimed at examining regular file I/O
paths rather than a raw XFS volume itself. These code paths include
not only the obvious read/write/mmap interfaces for manipulating files,
but also cover all of the XFS extensions (such as space preallocation,
additional inode flags, etc).
Most of its commands can also be used with other filesystems.
