Subject: [PATCH v2] Documentation: kunit: Add CLI args for kunit_tool
Date: Thu, 21 Jul 2022 08:10:27 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Run_wrapper.rst was missing some command line arguments. Added
additional args in the file.

Signed-off-by: Sadiya Kazi <>
Changes since V1:
- Addressed most of the review comments from Maira and David, except
  removing the duplicate arguments as I felt its worth keeping them in
  the reference documentation as well as in context. We can improve them
  and differentiate their use cases in the future patches.

             added or modified. Instead, enable all tests
             which have satisfied dependencies by adding
             ``CONFIG_KUNIT_ALL_TESTS=y`` to your ``.kunitconfig``.
+- ``--kunitconfig``: Specifies the path or the directory of the ``.kunitconfig``
+  file. For example:
+  - ``lib/kunit/.kunitconfig`` can be the path of the file.
+  - ``lib/kunit`` can be the directory in which the file is located.
+  This file is used to build and run with a predefined set of tests
+  and their dependencies. For example, to run tests for a given subsystem.
+- ``--kconfig_add``: Specifies additional configuration options to be
+  appended to the ``.kunitconfig`` file.
+  For example, ``./tools/testing/kunit/ run --kconfig_add CONFIG_KASAN=y``.
+- ``--arch``: Runs tests on the specified architecture. The architecture
+  specified must match the Kbuild ARCH environment variable.
+  For example, i386, x86_64, arm, um, etc. Non-UML architectures run on QEMU.
+  Default is `um`.
+- ``--cross_compile``: Specifies the Kbuild toolchain. It passes the
+  same argument as passed to the ``CROSS_COMPILE`` variable used by
+  Kbuild. This will be the prefix for the toolchain
+  binaries such as GCC. For example:
+  - ``sparc64-linux-gnu-`` if we have the sparc toolchain installed on
+    our system.
+  - ``$HOME/toolchains/microblaze/gcc-9.2.0-nolibc/microblaze-linux/bin/microblaze-linux``
+    if we have downloaded the microblaze toolchain from the 0-day
+    website to a specified path in our home directory called toolchains.
+- ``--qemu_config``: Specifies the path to a file containing a
+  custom qemu architecture definition. This should be a python file
+  containing a `QemuArchParams` object.
+- ``--qemu_args``: Specifies additional QEMU arguments, for example, "-smp 8".
+- ``--jobs``: Specifies the number of jobs (commands) to run simultaneously.
+  By default, this is set to the number of cores on your system.
+- ``--timeout``: Specifies the maximum number of seconds allowed for all tests to run.
+  This does not include the time taken to build the tests.
+- ``--kernel_args``: Specifies additional kernel command-line arguments. Might be repeated.
+- ``--run_isolated``: If set, boots the kernel for each individual suite/test.
+  This is useful for debugging a non-hermetic test, one that
+  might pass/fail based on what ran before it.
+- ``--raw_output``: If set, generates unformatted output from kernel. Possible options are:
+   - ``all``: To view the full kernel output, use ``--raw_output=all``.
+   - ``kunit``: This is the default option and filters to KUnit output. Use ``--raw_output`` or ``--raw_output=kunit``.
+- ``--json``: If set, stores the test results in a JSON format and prints to `stdout` or
+  saves to a file if a filename is specified.
