We propose a fault injection framework to assess hang detection facilities within the Linux Operating System (OS). The novelty of the framework consists in the adoption of a more representative faultload than existing ones, and in the effectiveness in terms of number of hang failures produced; representativeness is supported by a field data study on the Linux OS. Using the proposed fault injection framework, along with realistic workloads, we find that the Linux OS is unable to detect hangs indoi:10.1109/srds.2009.26 dblp:conf/srds/CotroneoNR09 fatcat:4imj6vrvyvcfpjeik4obfc2w3e
