Broadcom Test Data Manager Scalability

You can envision TDM happening at three layers. One is the application layer, the second is a cluster layer, and the third is an end-to-end layer. The data required for the first level and the second level are pretty different. You can't use first-level data in the second level. And the data required for the third, for end-to-end testing, is very different from the first two layers. So when we look at scalability, we have to see how we are creating the "journey" from one layer to another. For example, if we are working in the customer area and then we jump to payments, we have to see what the common things are that we can scale and what areas we have not tested and address them.

It's a tool so scalability depends on you use it. Scalability is pretty relative. It provides a lot of features and it's up to you how you utilize them. It's pretty scalable. It has automated features and I don't think there is any other tool in the market which provides such a level of automated solutions. The demand in the industry, with respect to enterprise solutions, is pretty complex and CA TDM is pretty good. It is scalable but not to the extent that a foolproof enterprise solution can be provided using this tool. View full review »

Scalability is a matter of how you use your systems. Our requirements required using it for MS SQL Server, Db2, and LUW Db2. We scaled the tool with all the databases we have, so it's scalable. View full review »

When we publish a lot data into the target, sometimes it is not able to handle it. What we do normally is we create the data margins of the source and we try to publish short sets of data into the target. Many times the publish will fail. I think the reason is because of huge sets of data that we publish. I am not sure if it is the tool issue, but I have seen this a lot of times before, where it is not able to publish a huge set of data (thousands and thousands of sets of data). With a few sets, it works. When we try to publish a lot of data, every time there is a publish error. Though, I have not tried it lately, we have seen this before. View full review »
