Adding a Custom Test

As stated earlier, a Custom test type offers you the complete flexibility in introducing new monitoring functionality. To implement a Custom test, a test class is generated using a Test Generator API to perform the specific functions expected of the test. A detailed description of the Test Generator API is available in Test Generator API.

Using a Custom test type, you can build both performance and configuration tests. This section takes the help of illustrated examples to explain the process of building a Custom performance test and a Custom configuration test.
