The SDX Layer

The test mapped to this layer measure how the SDX appliance uses the CPU, memory, SSL cores, and storage resources at its disposal. In the process, the tests proactively alert administrators to potential resource contentions on the appliance. Additionally, the tests monitor the uptime of the appliance and its XenServer hypervisor and sends out alerts if the appliance/XenServer reboot suddenly.
