Software Testing

Software Stack

The following tests are performed on the software stack:

  • Basic database tests

  • Database-centric software fault injection tests

  • Database and cluster-centric hardware fault injection tests

  • VERITAS VxVM/Sun Cluster software fault injection test cases

Basic Database Test Cases

The basic database test cases are:

  1. Create and layout storage volumes

  2. Install and configure Oracle9i RAC software

  3. Create TPC-C database. [size will vary]

  4. Tune TPC-C database for optimal performance

Database-Centric Software Fault Injection Test Cases

The database-centric test cases are:

  1. Kill Oracle DLM process (dlmd) on one cluster node

  2. Kill Oracle ucmmd process on one cluster node

  3. Kill Oracle DLM monitor process (dlmmon) on one node

  4. Halt node while Oracle instance is running by using the send brk command

  5. Kill rgmd on one node

  6. Kill Oracle idlm (lmon, lmd0, or lck0) process on one node.

The test software automatically verifies that the system reacts to each of these six steps as expected.

Database and Cluster-Centric Hardware Fault Injection Test Cases

The database and cluster-centric hardware fault injection test cases are:

  1. Single private interconnect failure

  2. Split brain; failure of all private interconnects

VERITAS VxVM/Sun Cluster Fault Injection Test Cases

The VERITAS VxVM/Sun Cluster fault injection test cases are:

  1. Failure of single disk drive in RAID 1+0 volume

  2. Root mirror disk drive pull of one node

  3. Grow and shrink VERITAS volumes without disrupting TPC-C benchmark

  4. Detach and re-attach plex(es)

Sun ONE Load and Stress Test Case

The Sun ONE loader test case is:

Sun ONE AS loader test suite

Configurations

The standard configurations are:

Single Node

  • Sun Enterprise 420R Server with Sun StorEdge™ T3 array

  • Sun Enterprise 4500 Server with Sun StorEdge T3 array

  • Sun Enterprise 6500 Server with Sun StorEdge A5200 array

Cluster Nodes

Sun Fire 280R Server with Sun StorEdge T3 array
