Fault injection involves the deliberate insertion of faults or errors into software in order to determine its response and to study its behaviour. Fault Injection Experiments have proven to be an effective method for measuring and studying response of defects, validating fault-tolerant systems, and observing how systems behave in the presence of faults. This approach can offer both accuracy of fault injection results transparency of the system dynamics in the presence of faults. The objectives of this study are to measure and study defect leakage, analyse amplification of errors and study "Domino" effect of defects leaked.
