The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) complex of accelerators at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) operates using a large distributed controls system, consisting of approximately 1.5 million control points, over 430 VME based control modules, and thousands of server processes. We have developed a new testing platform that can be used to improve code reliability and help streamline the code development process by adding more automated testing. The testing platform simulates the control system using the actual controls system code base but by redirecting the I/O to simulated interfaces. In this report, we will describe the design of the system and the current status of its development.
