Abstract

Research reproducibility is an emerging topic in computer science. One of the problems in research reproducibility is the absence of tools to reproduce specified operating system with specific version of the software installed. In the proposal reported here we investigate how a tool based on lightweight virtualisation technologies reproduces them. The experiments show that creating reproducible environment adds significant overhead only on the first run of the application, and propose a number of ways to improve the tool.
