Using Linux in industrial products and particularly its real-time capabilities requires exact knowledge of the systems' reliability and stability. To be able to fix stability issues, meticulous monitoring of a large number of system variables and messages including console output is required. The latter is used to assist post-mortem debugging.

The Open Source Automation Development Lab (OSADL) operates a test center dubbed "QA Farm" where more than 120 different embedded Linux systems (x86, ARM, PowerPC, MIPS) are continuously monitored under idle, average and extreme CPU and GPU load. Kernel versions that proved to be stable on all system during a given interval are labelled "Latest Stable" and recommended for use in industrial products.
