<p>Because of its past success, AFL became a standard part of the testing
strategy for SQLite beginning with [version 3.8.10].  There are at least two
instance of AFL running against SQLite continuously, 24/7/365, trying new
randomly mutated inputs against SQLite at a rate of a few hundred to a few
thousand per second.  Both SQL statements and database files are fuzzed.
Billions and billions of mutations have been tried, but AFL's 
instrumentation has narrowed them down to less than 30,000 test cases that
cover all distinct behaviors.  Newly discovered test cases are periodically
captured and added to the [TCL test suite] where they can be rerun using
the "make fuzztest" command.
