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 Bash Shell Script to Automate Product Test Lab Applications

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

During product development, new products are often subjected to a range of tests in order to detect potential hardware flaws and software bugs. These tests can require days or weeks to complete and the nature of the test is often extremely repetitive as the same action is repeated many times over. Repetitive power reboot regression testing provides a good example of a typical product development lab test. In order to streamline this type of repetitive testing, Bash Shell Script can be used to automate the test process.

Using Scripts to Control a Switched PDU

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

In addition to providing an effective means to reboot remote devices in network management applications, Switched PDUs can also perform many useful functions in product development lab applications. One of the most common tasks assigned to a switched PDU in the product development lab, is to provide power on/off switching for repetitive power reboot regression testing. Given the long duration of a typical power reboot test and the number of reboot cycles involved, it can be extremely helpful to control the switched PDU using scripts.

Using Ruby Script to Control a Switched PDU

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

In repetitive power reboot regression testing, it can often be handy to be able to control a switched PDU using Ruby script. In addition to freeing lab personnel for more pressing duties, control via Ruby script also improves the reliability of power reboot regression test results procedure by ensuring that each reboot cycle is performed according to schedule and that reboots are performed continually, without interruption.

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.
