Testing HPX

To ensure correctness of HPX we ship a large variety of unit and regression tests. The tests are driven by the CTest tool and are executed automatically by buildbot (see HPX Buildbot Website) on each commit to the HPX Github repository. In addition, it is encouraged to run the test suite manually to ensure proper operation on your target system. If a test fails for your platform, we highly recommend submitting an issue on our HPX Issues tracker with detailed information about the target system.

Running tests manually

Running the tests manually is as easy as typing make tests && make test. This will build all tests and run them once the tests are built successfully. After the tests have been built, you can invoke separate tests with the help of the ctest command. You can list all available test targets using make help | grep tests. Please see the CTest Documentation for further details.

Issue tracker

If you stumble over a bug or missing feature missing feature in HPX please submit an issue to our HPX Issues. For more information on how to submit support requests or other means of getting in contact with the developers please see the Support Website.

Continuous testing

In addition to manual testing, we run automated tests on various platforms. You can see the status of the current master head by visiting the HPX Buildbot Website. We also run tests on all pull requests using both CircleCI and a combination of CDash and pycicle. You can see the dashboards here: CircleCI HPX dashboard and CDash HPX dashboard .
