+# BVT
+## What is Build Verification or Build Validation Test?
+In software testing, a Build Verification Test (BVT), also known as
+Build Acceptance Test, is a set of tests run on each new build of a product
+to verify that the build is testable before the build is released into the
+hands of the test team.
+
+## Scope of Testing:
+The build acceptance test is generally a short set of tests,
+which exercises the mainstream functionality of the application software.
+Any build that fails the build verification test is rejected,
+and testing continues on the previous build (provided there has been at
+least one build that has passed the acceptance test)

+
+## Gluster BVT
+
+BVT is divided in 2 set of tests.
+
+### BVT-Basic
+
+BVT-Basic is the first set of tests to qualify the build.
+Tests include validating services (glusterd, smb etc),
+validating volume operations (create, start, stop , status)
+
+### BVT-VVT ( VVT: Volume verification test)
+
+BVT-VVT is the second set of tests to qualify whether the build is good to
+be consumed for further testing once BVT-Basic passes.
+BVT-VVT covers the following gluster specific test on all combinations
+of volume and mount types supported by gluster.
+
+Test Case Summary:
+1) Creates a volume
+2) Mounts the volume
+3) Run IO from the mount.
+4) teardown the mount
+5) teardown the volume
+
+Volume types:
+- Distribute
+- Replicate
+- Distribute-Replicate
+- Disperse
+- Distribute-Disperse
+
+Mount types:
+- Glusterfs
+- Nfs
+- CIFS
