Problem Statement and Solution

Problem Statement:

  • The client needs servers and client machines hosted in same domain/workgroup for AFourTech to perform load testing.
  • The client needs load testing result of all workflows in specific report format where detailing of each and every page response can be captured and projected through graphs.
  • The client needs Security testing results in specific report format where mapping of test cases and defect are provided.
  • For the best response of LOX application, client needs ramp up time of 1 second in performance testing and DB and attachments restoration before each flow execution.

Solution:

  • AFourTech came up with the solution of hosting WEB server, FILE server, DB server and one client machine on AWS having same workgroup to get more accurate data in load testing reports
  • AFourTech created a report template for performance testing where details of all captured pages are shown in statistics as well as in graphical form.
  • AFourTech created a report template for security testing where mapping of test cases and defects are provided.
