Issue Summary

The hardware or the network are too slow

Category

Execution

Examples

Automated tests run on older machines that have been discarded by developers
The network is overloaded so response times are way too long
Databases are shared with testing and development and on critical times can slow down to a creep

Questions

Why aren't the appropriate resources available?

Resolving Patterns

Most recommended:

  • DEDICATED RESOURCES: Use this pattern in order to get the resorces that you need, when you need them
  • MANAGEMENT SUPPORT: Support from management is needed in order to get the resources needed for optimal test execution


Other useful patterns:

  • GET ON THE CLOUD: Getting on the cloud can be a very economical way to solve bottlenecks
