Persitent Memory Test Framework
This creative component introduces a trace based testing framework for persistent memory programs. Using a number of tools and techniques, the framework checks for expected output, hangs, and errors. The framework builds on the ideas put forth in previous persistent memory testing frameworks and could be the base of a full featured test framework in the future. The framework introduces a trace generator, memory map generator, and bug checker in conjunction with a program that recovers from power failures by accessing persistent memory. We show that the framework is able to detect synthetic hangs and recovery code errors.
