Abstract(in English) We report our design and implementation of a cluster-aware fault injector, or CFI, which enables systematic reproduction of faulty clustered environments by software. CFI focuses on building a testbed for research on fault-tolerant cluster computing. It allows to investigate the behavior of systems software and applications on clustered environments when user-specified faults happen. It consists of a Linux kernel module, which accounts for injecting network-related faults into a running operating system of each node, and a set of various tools, which controls the kernel module. It injects a fault into the entire cluster nodes based on a given fault scenario written by a user. Our preliminary experiments showed that its intrusiveness is not significantly large, and that it is a promising tool for further research on fault tolerance.
