Is there recommended TestExecute lify cycle time?

Is there recommended time for TestExecute life cycle?

If I use the TE process without closing and restarting, is there any problem occurs such as lose in speed or memory leak?

I have test cases consistently, so I won't kill the process(also the computer which process is running). 

How long can I keep the process on?

Re: Is there recommended TestExecute lify cycle time?

I usually run TestExecute as a command line in a windows task scheduler, including the /exit command line switch.


I don't know if there is a "recommended" cycle... there's nothing documented.  But I also don't see any benefit to keeping the TestExecute service open in windows unless you specifically need it.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

You can keep the process ON for the indefinite time period (that might affect the system performance a bit), but I don't see any benefits of doing so. Why specifically you need to do this?
