I have to test a cron job that has gone some performance code level changes.
Earlier this daily cron job was taking 1.5 hours to complete and this was not accepted by the business.
But the same job in the QA environment having live data backup takes used to take only 10 mins.
Developement failed to replicate the live scenario and also the root cause is not clear.
So The development team thought of adding indexing to the database hoping that this will solve the issue and cron job wil run and complete in less time.
I would be testing this change.
how can i confirm that the fix is complete and cron is working fine because there is no way we can simulate the live scenario.
