Retest upon failure

Is it possible for a robot to signal a failed test to other robots so they may in turn test the application immediately rather than wait for the scheduled test time?

The question arises from a scenario where we want to ensure the application has failed from all sites as opposed to a failure of robot, script, or local network failure.

Ideally we'd have redundant robots at each site.  When the first fails it signals its nearest neighbour (in this case the co-located robot) to test.  If that fails it signals its neighbour(s) (other nearby sites) to test.  If they fail then all robots test.  This would provide a more immediate failure notification and allow ops to be more responsive and provide better quality data for SLA reporting.

I think its possible to script this within the framework with some bootstrap scripts allowing process control but the problem is fairly complex and I want to know if we've attempted it elsewhere.

 

thanks,

Alex.

Hi Alex,

This is not possible. We do not have the ability to change schedules based on the results of the tests.
