Is anyone using Tosca for Non Functional Testing?


It appears most groups are using Tosca for Functional testing.....just curious if anyone is using Tosca for Non Functional Testing and how is it working out?

I'm aware that some are using this to 'flood' an application with load and to assess performance. I have worked with clients that have used Tosca to benchmark a transaction when re-platforming. It isn't best practice for assessing software performance. Not the use of Tosca just the general practice of testing software performance in this way. I do have a number of clients that use Tosca for checking that a suite of applications are available from a user perspective (for example - as a system health check after a maintenance window). This is quite common, successful and a good use case for a test automation tool that drives the UI.

To date, I have only been utilising Tosca for functional testing. My experience is limited to one client, one product.

I am not aware of anyone using TOSCA for Non-functional testing. Although the question is not clear as there are multiple non-functional testing. Is the question regarding the performance test or HA-DR test or stress test?

Good point! I was referring to Negative, Failover, Negative and Shakedown testing.
