User-Assisted Log Analysis for Quality Control of Distributed Fintech

Research paper Exactpro - User-Assisted Log Analysis for Quality Control of Distributed Fintech Applications

Abstract - Testing of distributed systems is a complex task, which is hampered by the impossibility of guaranteed reproduction of errors associated with race conditions. Even minor instrumentation of the system significantly changes its characteristics, which becomes critical, especially for load testing. All of that increases the importance of quality control methods based on the system log analysis. In this paper, we present our experience of semi-automated analysis of the behavior of clearing and settlement system by utilizing its logs for the purpose of identifying and classifying errors.
