Subject: [PATCH linux-kselftest/test v3] Documentation: kunit: add documentation for kunit_tool
Date: Mon, 18 Nov 2019 16:31:20 -0800
Message-ID: <20191119003120.154041-1-brendanhiggins@google.com> (raw)

Add documentation for the Python script used to build, run, and collect
results from the kernel known as kunit_tool. kunit_tool
(tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py) was already added in previous commits.

+=================
+kunit_tool How-To
+=================
+
+What is kunit_tool?
+===================
+
+kunit_tool is a script (``tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py``) that aids in building
+the Linux kernel as UML (`User Mode Linux
+<http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/>`_), running KUnit tests, parsing
+the test results and displaying them in a user friendly manner.
+
+What is a kunitconfig?
+======================
+
+It's just a defconfig that kunit_tool looks for in the base directory.
+kunit_tool uses it to generate a .config as you might expect. In addition, it
+verifies that the generated .config contains the CONFIG options in the
+kunitconfig; the reason it does this is so that it is easy to be sure that a
+CONFIG that enables a test actually ends up in the .config.
+
+How do I use kunit_tool?
+=================================
+
+If a kunitconfig is present at the root directory, all you have to do is:
+
+.. code-block:: bash
+
+	./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run
+
+However, you most likely want to use it with the following options:
+
+.. code-block:: bash
+
+	./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run --timeout=30 --jobs=`nproc --all`
+
+- ``--timeout`` sets a maximum amount of time to allow tests to run.
+- ``--jobs`` sets the number of threads to use to build the kernel.
+
+If you just want to use the defconfig that ships with the kernel, you can
+append the ``--defconfig`` flag as well:
+
+.. code-block:: bash
+
+	./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run --timeout=30 --jobs=`nproc --all` --defconfig
+
+.. note::
+	This command is particularly helpful for getting started because it
+	just works. No kunitconfig needs to be present.
+
+For a list of all the flags supported by kunit_tool, you can run:
+
+.. code-block:: bash
+
+	./tools/testing/kunit/kunit.py run --help
