Systems Testing With VTS

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

The Vendor Test Suite (VTS) automates HAL and OS kernel testing. To use VTS to test an Android native system implementation, set up a testing environment then test a patch using a VTS plan.

Establishing a test environment

To set up a testing environment:

  1. Install Python development kit:
    sudo apt-get install python-dev
  2. Install Protocol Buffer tools (for Python):
    sudo apt-get install python-protobuf
    sudo apt-get install protobuf-compiler
  3. Install Python virtual environment-related tools:
    sudo apt-get install python-virtualenv
    sudo apt-get install python-pip

Testing a patch

To test a patch:

  1. Build a VTS host-side package:
    . build/
    lunch aosp_arm64-userdebug
    make vts -j
  2. Run the default VTS tests:
    tf> run vts     // where vts is the test plan name

VTS plans

Available VTS test plans include:

Command Description
> run vts For default VTS tests
> run vts-hal For default VTS HAL (hardware abstraction layer) tests
> run vts-kernel For default VTS kernel tests
