Subject: Failure data needed
I am currently working on a research project to enhance the software reliability models. Test data are urgently needed. The data should meet the following criteria.
1. They are collected from testing computer software programs.
2. Data are recorded as the (execution) times between two consecutive failures over a specified period of time.
Anyone has information leading me to the data sets?

In Ann Marie Neufelder's book, "Ensuring Software Reliability", three or four case studies are included. Figures of the cumulative failures and the grouped failure causes with times in days of testing are shown. These data points might help in your study. This book is published by Marcel Dekker,Inc., 1993.
