Right now the traffic load of the test machine is not really all that
important to the testing. As long as the module loads, logs some
coherent looking data whilst enabled and unloads across a range of
different hardware and kernel archs, I'll be happy. SIFTR will be
backported to 8 and possibly 7 also, so there will be plenty of time to
get people with more heavily loaded systems running stable branches to
join in testing.
This is the first real push I've made to get the code widely tested, so
I wouldn't feel comfortable asking people to run it on
(semi-)production, stable branch systems yet. If you're really keen to
help test it and you wouldn't be worried about running the code on such
a system, I would be happy to create a 7 and/or 8 backport of the
required bits. Otherwise, I'm happy to get the initial round of
9-CURRENT only testing feedback, commit it to head and then revisit once
it's settled and time to merge it back to the stable branches.
