Network Testing

Network Testing

Most automated testing methodologies address the network infrastructure as a passive architectural component rather than a direct contributor to application performance, infrastructure stability and satisfaction of your business customers and employees. A thorough testing methodology is necessary to provide a complete end-to-end automated testing solution in order to understand the effect of the existing network topology on your application, as well as to understand the effect your application will have on the existing network. Intent on improving your capability to identify and solve problems, SoftLabs uses best-of-breed tools and methodologies to provide network testing solutions that address all phases of application development. SoftLabs automated testing processes and application-centric view of your architecture allows you to:

Graphically visualize all the components, such as servers, routers, etc., which participate in presenting data to the end-user’s application.

Determine the network capacity requirements of your application in order to assure that your network infrastructure can not only support its current requirements, but that it will also be able to scale as your business grows.

Analyze existing network traffic in order to identify computers that are infected with viruses and/or are exhibiting anomalous behavior, such as large data transfers or denial of service (DOS) attacks.

Provide insight into how an application will perform in various network environments, such as WANs, and across geographically distributed end-users. Bandwidth and network latency can be analyzed in order to identify the effects on end-user response time, as well as to identify the minimal acceptable configurations to support your application Service Level Agreements (SLA).

Characterize transaction attributes, such as the amount of frames transferred or the number of client initiated requests and pinpoints the source of poor end-user response time by identifying the amount of time spent processing on your client, one or more servers and the network.

Data gathered by network management tools to diagnose ongoing or historical performance and stability problems.
