In addition to Jesse's reply, AutoQA is a framework for tests. You can
theoretically run almost any type of test through AutoQA. Essentially
it's just a little machine for running a bunch of arbitrary commands at
specified times, and saving the results somewhere. It's by nature very
flexible, and there's not a lot of restrictions on what the tests you
can run within the AutoQA framework actually *do*.
