“Everything is a file” is an often cited rule of thumb in the Linux ecosystem, illustrating how important files and, thus, the reliability of file systems are for a Linux operating system.
The easiest way to improve reliability is to configure the file system as read-only, prohibiting content modification. However, this is not always an option, as configuration data, log files, and temporary information require a file system that is reliable and writable.
In this free webinar, Elektrobit’s Jens Petersohn and Andreas Zdiarstek of emlix present a testing method designed to improve the reliability of Linux-based products.
Key topics and takeaways:
- Learn how Elektrobit’s file system-related design decisions impact development
- Discover how to identify issues arising for particular use cases early and to resolve them as quickly as possible
- Find out how an added layer of protection is beneficial if file system bugs occur in an upstream code
