PROGRAM:

NAME


libguestfs-test-tool - Diagnostics for libguestfs

SYNOPSIS


libguestfs-test-tool [--options]

DESCRIPTION


libguestfs-test-tool is a test program shipped with libguestfs to allow you to check basic
libguestfs functionality is working. This is needed because libguestfs occasionally
breaks for reasons beyond our control: usually because of changes in the underlying qemu
or kernel packages, or the host environment.

If you suspect a problem in libguestfs, then just run:

libguestfs-test-tool

It will print lots of diagnostic messages.

If it runs to completion successfully, you will see this near the end:

===== TEST FINISHED OK =====

and the test tool will exit with code 0.

If it fails (and/or exits with non-zero error code), please paste the complete, unedited
output of the test tool into a bug report. More information about reporting bugs can be
found on the http://libguestfs.org/ website.

OPTIONS


--help
Display short usage information and exit.

--qemu qemu_binary
If you have downloaded another qemu binary, point this option at the full path of the
binary to try it.

--qemudir qemu_source_dir
If you have compiled qemu from source, point this option at the source directory to
try it.

-t N
--timeout N
Set the launch timeout to "N" seconds. The default is 600 seconds (10 minutes) which
does not usually need to be adjusted.

-V
--version
Display the libguestfs version number and exit.

TRYING OUT A DIFFERENT VERSION OF QEMU


If you have compiled another version of qemu from source and would like to try that, then
you can use the --qemudir option to point to the qemu source directory.

If you have downloaded a qemu binary from somewhere, use the --qemu option to point to the
binary.

Note when using these options, you can ignore the business of qemu wrapper scripts ("QEMU
WRAPPERS" in guestfs(3)), since libguestfs-test-tool writes a wrapper script for you if
one is needed.

TRYING OUT A DIFFERENT KERNEL


You can tell supermin to try a different kernel. You do this by setting the environment
variables "SUPERMIN_KERNEL", "SUPERMIN_KERNEL_VERSION" and/or "SUPERMIN_MODULES".

Refer to "ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES" in supermin(1) for further information.

TRYING OUT A DIFFERENT VERSION OF LIBVIRT


To find out which backend is the default in your libguestfs package, do:

unset LIBGUESTFS_BACKEND
guestfish get-backend

If you are using the libvirt backend, then you can try out a different (eg. upstream)
version of libvirt by running these commands (not as root):

killall libvirtd lt-libvirtd
~/path/to/libvirt/run libguestfs-test-tool

The first command kills any session "libvirtd" process(es) that may be running on the
machine. The second command uses libvirt's "run" script (in the top-level libvirt build
directory) to set some environment variables so that the alternate version of libvirt is
used to run the program.

TRYING OUT WITH / WITHOUT LIBVIRT


To find out which backend is the default in your libguestfs package, do:

unset LIBGUESTFS_BACKEND
guestfish get-backend

If you are using the libvirt backend, you can try without (ie. libguestfs directly
launching qemu) by doing:

export LIBGUESTFS_BACKEND=direct

Or if you are using the default (direct) backend, then you can try libvirt:

export LIBGUESTFS_BACKEND=libvirt

or with libvirt and a specific libvirt URI:

export LIBGUESTFS_BACKEND=libvirt:qemu:///session

TRYING OUT DIFFERENT SELINUX SETTINGS


To find out which backend is the default in your libguestfs package, do:

unset LIBGUESTFS_BACKEND
guestfish get-backend

To find out if SELinux is being used, do:

getenforce

If you are using libvirt, SELinux and sVirt, then you can try to see if changing SELinux
to "permissive" mode makes any difference. Use this command as root:

setenforce Permissive

If this makes a difference, look in the audit logs for recent failures ("AVCs"):

ausearch -m avc -ts recent

You can convert AVCs into suggested SELinux policy rules using tools like audit2allow(1).
For more information, see the "Security Enhanced Linux User Guide".

To reenable SELinux and sVirt, do:

setenforce Enforcing

SELF-DIAGNOSIS


Refer to "APPLIANCE BOOT PROCESS" in guestfs(3) to understand the messages produced by
libguestfs-test-tool and/or possible errors.

EXIT STATUS


libguestfs-test-tool returns 0 if the tests completed without error, or 1 if there was an
error.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES


For the full list of environment variables which may affect libguestfs, please see the
guestfs(3) manual page.
