Some test groups may need or support special command line options, or require special care when used on certain systems.
Memory allocation stress tests
Memory allocation stress tests exercise out-of-memory conditions by repeatedly allocating certain resources until the driver reports an out-of-memory error.
On certain platforms, such as Android and most Linux variants, the following
can occur: The operating system may kill the test process instead of allowing a
driver to handle or otherwise provide an out-of-memory error. On such
platforms, tests that are designed to cause out-of-memory errors are disabled
by default, and must be enabled using the
--deqp-test-oom=enable command line argument.
It is recommended that you run such tests manually to
check if the system behaves correctly under resource pressure. However, in such
a situation, a test process crash should be interpreted as a pass.
Long-running rendering stress tests
Rendering stress tests are designed to reveal robustness issues under sustained
rendering load. By default the tests will execute only a few iterations, but
they can be configured to run indefinitely by supplying the
--deqp-test-iteration-count=-1 command line argument. The test watchdog should be disabled (
--deqp-watchdog=disable) when running these tests for a long period of time.
