The ATLAS EventIndex is a global catalogue of the events collected, processed or generated by the ATLAS experiment. The system was upgraded in advance of LHC Run 3, with a migration of the Run 1 and Run 2 data from HDFS MapFiles to HBase tables with a Phoenix interface. The frameworks for testing functionality and performance of the new system have been developed. There are two types of tests running. First, the functional test that must check the correct functioning of the import chain. These tests run event picking over a random set of recently imported data to see if the data have been imported correctly, and can be accessed by both the CLI and the PanDA client. The second, the performance test, generates event lookup queries on sets of the EventIndex data and measures the response times. These tests enable studies of the response time dependence on the amount of requested data, and data sample type and size. Both types of tests run regularly on the existing system. The results of the regular tests as well as the statuses of the main EventIndex sub-systems (services health, loaders status, filesystem usage, etc.) are sent to InfluxDB in JSON format via HTTP requests and are displayed on Grafana monitoring dashboards. In case (part of) the system misbehaves or becomes unresponsive, alarms are raised by the monitoring system.
