Complex code bases require continual testing to ensure that both new development and routine maintenance do not create unintended side effects. Automation of regression testing is a common mechanism to ensure consistency, accuracy, and repeatability of results. The MPI Testing Tool (MTT) is a flexible framework specifically designed for testing MPI implementations across multiple organizations and environments. The MTT offers a unique combination of features not available in any individual testing framework, including a built-in multiplicative effect for creating and running tests, historical correctness and performance analysis, and support for multiple cluster resource managers.
