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.


Power On-Off Regression Testing Initiated by TcL Script

Regression testing provides product development engineers with a reliable means for ensuring that hardware and software products can recover gracefully from a power interruption. In order to simplify the process of continually switching the test device on and off, user scripts (typically Bash scripts or TcL scripts) are employed to automate repetitive reboot testing.
