NFS is a critical service in many organizations, and even a simple error can lead to major problems.  NFSv4 promises to bring several key new features, but clearly it will be imperative to users that the new version of NFS be robust, that it perform well, and that it interoperate easily with other technologies.

implementation of NFSv4 succeeds on all these counts.  The purpose of the testing is threefold:
+
-
* To prove that the features are implemented correctly according to spec.
+
-
* To locate and identify bugs, and verify the fixes.
+
-
* To give confidence to users that upgrading to NFSv4 on Linux is of benefit.
