    Re: Error Seeding and Fault injection

    My understanding of the terms is that they are not the same.

    Error Seeding is a technique of inserting known faults into a system to determine the detection and removal rate and as a means to estimate the number of faults remaining. Personally, I'm not sure of the value of this technique but I guess it has it's uses.

    Fault injection on the other hand is a collective term for a range of techniques that can be used to assess how a system behaves in unusual situations (e.g. attempting to access a network resource that is no longer available or attempting to save when there is not enough disk space or pulling the plug on server.

    Hope that helps.

    Many thanks

    I agree with Bill about error seeding, but I actually think that it is the same thing as fault injection.

    Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong here.

    Best regards Björn
