Control Repetitive Reboot Test Applications using Teraterm Script

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

During product development, repetitive power reboot testing is often used to detect software bugs and hardware problems before a new product is released to the general market. Although repetitive power reboot tests are very effective in identifying software flaws and other problems, it is also a time consuming process that can last for days, weeks or even months. In order to free lab personnel from the task of constantly monitoring the test procedure, Teraterm script can be used to automate the repetitive power reboot test procedure.

The task of repeatedly initiating one power reboot cycle after another, 24/7, for weeks on end is enough to drive even the most OCD person over the edge. One simple way to avoid this problem is to use Python script to control the repetitive reboot process.
