Xception?: a Software Implemented Fault Injection Tool



This chapter addresses Xception - a software implemented fault injection tool. Among its key features are the usage of the advanced debugging and performance monitoring resources available in modern processors to emulate realistic faults by software, and to monitor the activation of the faults and their impact on the target system behaviour in detail. Xception has been used extensively on the field and is one the very few fault injection tools commercially available and supported.
