|| ||libfiu: Fault injection in userspace |

|| ||Article, Thread
I'm the author of libfiu, a library to perform fault injection. I've just made
a release, and it occurred to me that it's something that LWN readers might
find interesting, so I thought it'd be appropriate to let you know about it.
Its website is http://blitiri.com.ar/p/libfiu/.
It comes with some tools that can be used to simulate failures in the POSIX
functions without having to modify the application's source code.
The main application (or at least the one I had in mind when writing it) is to
simplify automated testing of software behaviour at failure scenarios, for
software which is supposed to be fault-resistant or at least gracefully cope
If there's anything else you need to know about it, please let me know.
Thanks a lot,
