Feedback form is now closed.
Container projects like LXC and Docker use Linux kernel namespacing features for container based deployment of applications. We will use kernel features together with Python and convenience libraries to instead perform debugging, experiments and test automation.

While a combination of bash, strace, ltrace or ptrace called directly from C program code do their job well, we can do the same in Python while gathering all information at once and driving the whole process as a single entity.

All of this can be driven interactively or fully automated. Pavel has already used automation to drive tests using client and server programs, collecting and processing data from the individual tests in a uniform way. Use your imagination and you can take it to another level.
