The VSW test suites are tests for the X Window System. There are two available releases. VSW release 4.1.1 is an unsupported general release of the X/Open Window Management Verification Suite. As such, it is a superset of the MIT X test suite version 1.2. VSW5 is a later version of VSW, including increased coverage for X11R6.
VSC Lite is a lite version of the full Open Group commands and utilities test suite. It provides test coverage for 77 commands and utilities from the POSIX.2-1992 specification. It is a self-contained test package and comes complete with its own version of the Test Environment Toolkit, and distributions of the Tcl and expect utilities that are used by the test framework. This release is distributed as a complete release.
The Item Response Theory (IRT) library is a set of functions to estimate the items and abilities from the responses of subjects to a questionnaire. The IRT models supported are the logistic model, the nominal response model, the graded response model, and smoothing by penalization and kernel. The project also hosts rirt, a package for the R Project for Statistical Computing, and eirt, an add-in for Excel.
latencytest allows one to benchmark scheduling latencies of audio-apps during high system load (GFX output, /proc filesystem access, heavy DISK I/O) The program outputs HTML pages containing GIF charts of the measured scheduling latencies during each system stresstest. The goal of the benchmark is to have a tool to help optimizing the kernel for realtime multimedia apps. Actually it benchmarks the scheduling latencies of a PCM playing thread which runs with SCHED_FIFO realtime priority, but I plan to include other subsystems, like MIDI I/O , serial I/O etc.
PureAgent monitors response times from an agent to a server by replaying transactions at specified intervals. This includes static and dynamic Web applications as well as other server applications. Response times are collected and alarms can be sent if performance and availability goals are not fulfilled. The agent is managed using a standard Web browser. Using the browser, an administrator specifies transactions to run, intervals, alarm settings, etc.
