Generating high-quality system call sequences is not only important to testing file system implementations, but also challenging due to the astronomically large input space. This paper introduces a new methodology for generating workloads for testing modern complex software, namely, the layered model checking, which generates diverse abstract workloads with respect to abstract models and extends them to concrete ones layer by layer. The methodology is instantiated as a file system workload generator. In a short-period experiment run, sequential workloads (system call sequences) manifested over a thousand crashes in mainline Linux Kernel file systems, with 12 previously unknown bugs being reported. We also provide evidence that such workloads benefit other domain-specific testing techniques including crash consistency testing and concurrency testing.
