Smoke testing is non-exhaustive software testing, ascertaining that the most crucial functions of a program work, but not bothering with finer details. The term comes to software testing from a similarly basic type of hardware testing, in which the device passed the test if it didn't catch fire the first time it was turned on.

The original version of smoke testing predates both hardware and software testing and is still used to test the integrity of a variety of systems by placing a smoke bomb inside some kind of a chamber to see if there are any leaks for the smoke to escape through.

A rudimentary form of testing applied to electronic equipment following repair or reconfiguration, in which power is applied and the tester checks for sparks, smoke, or other dramatic signs of fundamental failure.
