Penetration Testing Data Center Monitoring Solution

Penetration Testing Data Center Monitoring Solution

Customer has developed a monitoring solution for their data center as they were experiencing difficulties due to the presence of many different hardware variants. End to end testing including non-functional testing like performance and vulnerability is complex and time consuming.  The Customer was looking for automation of testing through automation.

Solution Description

  • Gadgeon came up with a SOM-based solution with a homogenous HW/SW platform to cater to all variants of the customer’s product. Monitoring and alarm handling system
  • Gadgeon Test Automation Framework (GTF) was leveraged to automation of test cases and their convergence spanning  across interfaces:-  Web-UI , CLI , TL1, and SNMP
  • Protocols Used : SNMP, TL1, TABS, TBOS, DCM ,HTTPS
  • Tools Used : GTF based on Robot framework, Python, Selenium, TestRail,  Jira, and Jenkins, 
  • Penetration Testing tools: OWASP and OpenVAS 

Outcome and Benefits Delivered

  • Reduced the testing effort and schedule through automation of above 95% of regression, reliability, performance, and vulnerability test cases.
  • Achieved 85 % of test coverage for functional test cases 
  • Achieved 100 % test coverage on regression test cases
  • Achieved 90% test coverage for non-functional testing cases including its regression
