Abstract: 

File system development requires to consider the multiple configurations that users can end up with. A specific setup may uncover relevant problems that do not surface on others. Storage workload and use case validation are needed (but time consuming and infrastructure failure prone) tasks within the development cycle. This session focuses on a model embedded into a Continuous Integration environment to identify file system serviced protocols (SMB, NFS, and Object) functional failures through different validation iterations. This allows to diagnose whether a problem is a product (code), test or infrastructure issue, providing feedback to the correct program area as soon as possible.

Learning Objectives:
1. Elements that facilitate logs extraction
2. Considerations to define the recursiveness of log analysis
3. Common types of failures for Storage protocols (SMB, NFS, Object)
4. Definition of code issue vs infrastructure issue
