Ikon Corp uses AQtime to identify performance issues and memory leaks reliably and accurately. Recently, they shared details about how AQtime helps them with their test strategy.
A.D.M.I.N. (Auditing, Detection and Monitoring of Information Networks) is Ikon Corp's integrated hardware and software solution that monitors a partial or complete network. "ADMIN can detect, analyze and identify threats and illegal or damaging activity and pinpoint their origin in real time," said Luigi Sandon from Ikon Corp.
Ikon needed to make sure A.D.M.I.N. was solid and ready to ship. "While developing A.D.M.I.N., we needed to make it very robust and reliable. Its monitoring modules need to run 24x7, almost unattended, often in remote locations. We knew we had to identify any performance issue and memory leaks quickly and accurately," said Luigi.
"Furthermore, due to the increasing availability of bandwidth, we needed to make it as fast as possible too, to allow for a prompt response whenever a threat has been identified. I knew that these goals could not be achieved with the debugging toolset included in Delphi and C++ Builder, or with empirical test. We needed a tool to profile code, spot leaks and verify that tests had covered all of our code."
