Unit Tests: KNI
===============

This is the test plan for the IntelĀ® DPDK KNI library.

This section explains how to run the unit tests for KNI. The test can be
launched independently using the command line interface.
This test is implemented as a linuxapp environment application.

The complete test suite is launched automatically using a python-expect
script (launched using ``make test``) that sends commands to
the application and checks the results. A test report is displayed on
stdout.

The steps to run the unit test manually are as follow::

  # make -C ./app/test/
  # insmod ./<TARGET>/kmod/igb_uio.ko
  # insmod ./<TARGET>/kmod/rte_kni.ko
  # ./app/test/test -n 1 -c ffff
  RTE>> kni_autotest
  RTE>> quit
  # rmmod rte_kni
  # rmmod igb_uio


The final output of the test has to be "Test OK"
