Issue: A code change to how our Instagram feed works on the Y page resulted in a memory overflow under production traffic volume, that did not occur in lower (QA / Preview) traffic volume. When the overflow occurred, an AEM bug was triggered that wrote data to large files on the disk. These files grew to exceed disk capacity.

It was identified as disk space to be the problem. Hence, expanded it and sent it and later disk space exceeded again. Disk space was expanded again to fix the incident.


  1. How good is Selenium at rapidly executing a script? The thought is, can this kind of issue be tested using selenium?
  2. Can 'Volume Testing' be performed using Selenium?

No , you can not do performance testing using selenium. Selenium is for functionality testing.

For performance testing please use : Jmeter for load testing
