Script Driven Power Reboot Regression Testing for Product Development Lab Applications

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

In the product development lab, power reboot regression testing provides engineers with a means for detecting product design flaws before releasing a product to market. Although this procedure can be very helpful in working the bugs out of a product before marketing, repetitive power reboot regression testing is also deadly boring and extremely time consuming. One way to streamline the repetitive power reboot test process and eliminate some of the innate tedium of the process, is to use a script-driven PDU to initiate each power reboot cycle.

Repetitive Power Reboot Regression Testing Managed via Visual Basic Script

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Although repetitive power reboot regression testing provides product development engineers with an effective tool for detecting software bugs and hardware problems, it can also be an extremely tedious process for those charged with the responsibility of running the test. One way to simplify this sort of testing and avoid the tedium of the test process is to use Visual Basic Script to drive the repetitive power reboot regression test.

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.

Repetitive Power Reboot Regression Testing Controlled by TcL Script

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Although repetitive power reboot regression testing provides a powerful tool for product developers seeking to track down problems before a new product is released, it is also an incredibly tedious process that can stretch on for weeks, or even months. One simple way to eliminate the tedium from repetitive power reboot regression testing is to use TcL script to control power On/Off switching activities.

Power Reboot Regression Testing Managed by Procomm Script

Monday, August 5th, 2013

In product development lab applications, such as power reboot regression testing, it is often helpful to be able to control power reboot switching via Procomm script. In addition to providing test engineers with a simple, reliable means to ensure the regularity of each reboot cycle and the continuity of the test process, the ability to control power On Off switching using Procomm script also helps to ease or eliminate the need for constant human supervision of the test.

Controlling a Switched PDU with Linux Shell Script

Friday, August 2nd, 2013

The ability to use Linux Shell Script to control power and reboot switching at a remote switched PDU can prove very useful in a number of different applications. For example, in repetitive reboot regression testing, Linux Shell Script can be used to control a switched PDU in order to automate the test procedure, reducing human interaction with the test procedure and improving the consistency and continuity of test results.

Controlling a Switched PDU with Bash Shell Script

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

In product development applications, repetitive reboot testing is often used to detect product flaws before the product is released to market. In most cases, this sort of testing involves using a switched PDU to continually reboot the test product, while checking for any error messages and status reports that are generated after each reboot. Since this sort of testing can involve thousands of reboot cycles, it is often helpful to be able to control the switched PDU using Bash Shell Script.

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.
