Testing Elasticity Part 1: Visualization of test cases and test executions

We test elastic computing systems by imposing time-varying workloads on them, and successively, checking conditions on the metrics that we extract from system executions.

At the moment, the whole process is implemented as a black-box, and sometimes is difficult to understand what is going on inside the system, which is a prerequisite to improve it functioning when a test fails.

We need to develop tools that support the testing and fault localization process, by whitening the box and visualizing test cases and executions through original visualization techniques.
