Is it possible to somehow see that Magento caching is enabled in the front-end? The question only related to the standard setup of Magento CE 1.9 or Magento-EE 1.14.
I'm asking that to check the state of the caching by Selenium tests, though I'm not happy adding custom extension to output the state of caching settings.
UPDATE: When caching is disabled on dev system, some tests might fail because of timeouts. We want to add explicit check to understand better why test-suite failed. Just increasing timeouts will only mask the issue.
I understand that I can see that in the backend, but I don't want to store admin user credentials in selenium test.
I also understand that Selenium is not a benchmarking tool, that is why we do not want to assert performance by Selenium in any form.
