Control Repetitive Power Reboot Testing via Perl Script

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

Repetitive power reboot regression testing plays a vital role in the product development lab, by providing product designers with a simple effective means to determine how new products will react to repeated power On/Off cycles. Although the basic process of repetitive reboot testing is fairly simple, the continuous, repeated nature of this type of test can often prove to be somewhat of a challenge for those who are responsible for it. For this reason, it can be helpful to automate the test process by using Perl script to initiate each power reboot cycle.

Using Perl Script to Control Power On Off and Reboot Switching

Monday, August 12th, 2013

In product development applications, it’s often useful to be able to control power on-off switching using a script such as Perl. In a lab environment, the ability to initiate power switching and reboot functions is a critical element in repetitive power reboot regression testing, and is generally used to detect hardware and software problems before a product is actually released to market.

Automate Repetitive Power Reboot Regression Testing Using Perl Script

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Repetitive power on/off regression testing has long served as a powerful tool for product development engineers by providing a reliable means to test a new product’s response to a power reboot. Given the duration of a typical power on/off regression test, and the number of reboots involved, the need to automate is easy to understand; not only does automation provide consistency and continuity in regression testing, but it also eliminates the need for constant human management of the test process. Fortunately, power on/off regression testing can be easily automated using Perl script to drive an advanced power switching product, such as the VMR-16HD20 Outlet Metered PDU.
