The Server Side Configuration and Reporting Toolkit (SSCRT) allows for users to install test sessions for configured test types. To avoid inconsistencies only a single test session per tested domain name is permitted but it is possible to run an unlimited number (resources permitting) of concurrent sessions for different domain names allowing for testing multiple features at the same time if required or desirable.
When test sessions are installed they are assigned a unique key for tracking/logging purposes. Sessions can be scheduled to run either immediately or in a time window in the future. To facilitate this effectively the SSCRT includes a background scheduler to automate the switch on and switch off to allow for clean and precise testing windows. Tests will be created with a PENDING status until they reach their start time after which they will become ACTIVE for the duration of their specified time window and finally become COMPLETED once they have reached the end of the time window.
Reporting will remain available for a given session until the session is explicitly deleted at which point all configuration and log files will be removed from the server.
