 - Run system tests on the installation in 'install'.
-Using Valgrind
+Run Time Validation
-If valgrind is installed and cmake option 'USE_VALGRIND' is 'ON' the tests will
-be run with valgrind's memcheck debugger. You can set other types of test runner
-or modify the valgrind flags by setting the TEST_RUNNER cmake variable.
+The CTest test suite can be configured to enable extra run time
+validation checks against the dispatch router.
+Since run time validation slows down qdrouter considerably it is
+disabled by default.  It can be enabled by setting the RUNTIME_CHECK
+build flag via the cmake command.
+Note well: Depending on your environment the ctest suite may time out
+if validation is enabled due to the additional run time overhead it
+adds.  You can extend the default test time via the ctest "--timeout"
+option.  Example:
+ctest --timeout 1500 -VV
+The Qpid Dispatch Router test suite supports the following run time
+validation tools:
+Valgrind Memcheck
+Runs qdrouterd under Valgrind's memcheck leak checker during the CTest
+suite.  This will cause tests to fail if a memory error is
+encountered.  Use the grinder tool (in the bin directory) to create a
+summary of the errors found during the test run.
+The valgrind toolset must be installed in order to use memcheck.
+To enable memcheck set the RUNTIME_CHECK build flag to "memcheck":
+cmake .. -DRUNTIME_CHECK=memcheck
+If valgrind detects errors the qdrouterd process will exit with an
+exit code of 42. This will be displayed in the CTest output. For
+RuntimeError: Errors during teardown:
+Process XXXX error: exit code 42, expected 0
+GCC/Clang Thread Sanitizer (TSAN)
+This option turns on extra run time threading verification.
+Applicable only to GCC versions >= 4.8 and Clang versions >= 4.1.
+To enable the thread sanitizer set the RUNTIME_CHECK build flag to "tsan":
+cmake .. -DRUNTIME_CHECK=tsan
 Review comment:
   Right now the level of optimization (-Ox) is determined by the build type.  So, by default
(RelWithDebInfo) this will supply -O2.
   the only target that does not enable optimization is Debug, which is by design.  Running
tsan on a Debug build is not a priority - we should be running tsan on optimized targets only.
