Testing Database Systems using the Random Query Generator

Philip Stoev

This talk will present the Random Query Generator, an open-source database testing framework that generates pseudo-random queries and then validates the correct operation of the database using various approaches.

The tool is currently being used in the MySQL and Drizzle projects, and will be introduced in MariaDB as well. Given its expressive power and practical effectiveness, it is hoped that other MySQL-derived or NoSQL projects will also adopt it.
