2013-11-14dmatest: add a 'wait' parameterDan Williams1-10/+17
Allows for scripting test runs by module load / unload. Prevent module load from returning until 'iterations' (finite) tests have completed, or cause reads of the 'wait' parameter in sysfs to pause until the tests are done. Also killed the local waitqueue since we can just let the thread exit naturally as long as we hold a reference.

2013-11-14dmatest: add basic performance metricsDan Williams1-0/+4

2013-11-14dmatest: restore ability to start test at module load and initDan Williams1-8/+10
1/ move 'run' control to a module parameter so we can do: modprobe dmatest run=1. With this moved the rest of the debugfs boilerplate can go. 2/ Fix parameter initialization. Previously the test was being started without taking the parameters into account in the built-in case. Also killed off the '__' version of some routines. The new rule is just hold the lock when calling a *threaded_test() routine.

2013-11-14dmatest: replace stored results mechanism, with uniform messagesDan Williams1-14/+13
For long running tests the tracking results in a memory leak for the "ok" results, and for the failures the kernel log should be sufficient. Provide a uniform format for error messages so they can be easily parsed and remove the debugfs file.

2013-11-14Revert "dmatest: append verify result to results"Dan Williams1-4/+2
This reverts commit d86b2f298e6de124984f5d5817ed1e6e759b3ada. The kernel log buffer is sufficient for collecting test results. The current logging OOMs the machine on long running tests, and usually only the first error is relevant. It is better to stop on error and parse the kernel output. If output volume becomes an issue we can always investigate using trace messages.

2013-08-22dmatest: make module parameters writableAndy Shevchenko1-7/+8
The debugfs interface brought a copy of the test case parameters. This makes different set of values under /sys/module/dmatest/parameters/ and /sys/kernel/debug/dmatest/. The user might be confused by the divergence of values. The proposed solution in this patch is to make module parameters writable and remove them from the debugfs. Though we're still using debugfs to control test runner and getting results. Documentation part is updated accordingly.

2013-06-08dmatest: do not allow to interrupt ongoing testsAndy Shevchenko1-3/+3
When user interrupts ongoing transfers the dmatest may end up with console lockup, oops, or data mismatch. This patch prevents user to abort any ongoing test. Documentation is updated accordingly.

2013-04-15dmatest: append verify result to resultsAndy Shevchenko1-2/+4
Comparison between buffers is stored to the dedicated structure. Note that the verify result is now accessible only via file 'results' in the debugfs. Signed-off-by: Andy Shevchenko <andriy.shevchenko@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Vinod Koul <vinod.koul@intel.com>
2013-04-15dmatest: gather test results in the linked listAndy Shevchenko1-0/+19
The patch provides a storage for the test results in the linked list. The gathered data could be used after test is done. The new file 'results' represents gathered data of the in progress test. The messages collected are printed to the kernel log as well. Example of output: % cat /sys/kernel/debug/dmatest/results dma0chan0-copy0: #1: No errors with src_off=0x7bf dst_off=0x8ad len=0x3fea (0) The message format is unified across the different types of errors. A number in the parens represents additional information, e.g. error code, error counter, or status. Note that the buffer comparison is done in the old way, i.e. data is not collected and just printed out.

2013-04-15dmatest: return actual state in 'run' fileAndy Shevchenko1-0/+12
The following command should return actual state of the test. % cat /sys/kernel/debug/dmatest/run To wait for test done the user may perform a busy loop that checks the state. % while [ $(cat /sys/kernel/debug/dmatest/run) = "Y" ] > do > echo -n "." > sleep 1 > done > echo Signed-off-by: Andy Shevchenko <andriy.shevchenko@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Vinod Koul <vinod.koul@intel.com>
2013-04-15dmatest: run test via debugfsAndy Shevchenko1-0/+48
Instead of doing modprobe dmatest ... modprobe -r dmatest we allow user to run tests interactively. The dmatest could be built as module or inside kernel. Let's consider those cases. 1. When dmatest is built as a module... After mounting debugfs and loading the module, the /sys/kernel/debug/dmatest folder with nodes will be created. They are the same as module parameters with addition of the 'run' node that controls run and stop phases of the test. Note that in this case test will not run on load automatically. Example of usage: % echo dma0chan0 > /sys/kernel/debug/dmatest/channel % echo 2000 > /sys/kernel/debug/dmatest/timeout % echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/dmatest/iterations % echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/dmatest/run After a while you will start to get messages about current status or error like in the original code. Note that running a new test will stop any in progress test. 2. When built-in in the kernel... The module parameters that is supplied to the kernel command line will be used for the first performed test. After user gets a control, the test could be interrupted or re-run with same or different parameters. For the details see the above section "1. When dmatest is built as a module..." In both cases the module parameters are used as initial values for the test case. You always could check them at run-time by running % grep -H . /sys/module/dmatest/parameters/* Signed-off-by: Andy Shevchenko <andriy.shevchenko@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Vinod Koul <vinod.koul@intel.com>
