This is a great question, and one that comes up often. Here are a few things to think about:
- At SCSI Toolbox, LLC we are here to help you do your job better. That being said, the SCSItoolbox has many features, and one that has become very popular among in-house development teams is the Developer Toolbox. This is a C++, VB, .NET, or in Linux a Shared Function library (DLL), that allows your testing engineers to write tests and focus on your results rather than fussing with low level functions, such as Command Tag queuing, logging, trapping errors, etc.
- Is the author(s) of your tests going to be willing to make changes to the tests as needed, and in a timely manner? At SCSItoolbox, we typically answer support calls and emails within a few hours.
- Many times the programmers writing in-house test applications end up transferring to other groups, departments, or leave the company. SCSItoolbox has been in business since 1992 working with every major storage peripheral company and continue to support the SCSItoolbox Suite and respond to an ever changing peripheral testing business.
