In early December, I was travelling down to the HPE Discover conference in London. I think that I’d allowed myself to be slightly less organised than normal, because rather than some far flung destination, I was heading to London on the train. This lack of prior planning and preparation caught me out when I realised that I’d managed to leave my laptop power supply at home.
In order to adequately assess what’s happening to the underlying Infrastructure/Hardware during a performance test, monitoring is essential. Here at Trust IV, we decided to integrate HP’s SiteScope product into HP’s new cloud performance testing offering, StormRunner Load.
This is how I setup the Infrastructure.
We love going to NWTG events in Manchester which are a great benefit to the testing community in this area. As a performance testing consultancy, events like this give Trust IV insights into testing fields outside our specialist skill-set.
I spotted an interesting article on TNW (The Next Web) this morning. The article by Owen Williams described how a new website http://retroj.am (RetroJam) could provide you with customised Spotify playlists and “rediscover your musical past”. Owen, described how the website lays out a timeline with playlists from different eras of your childhood after you enter your birth date.
Trust IV has again been invited to present at a customer session at HP Discover. HP Discover is Hewlett-Packard's showcase technology event for customers and regularly attracts more than 10,000 delegates to the European event, which this year was held in Barcelona.
Okay, we’re going to play a quick game of yes and no. You know the game, I ask a question and you answer with either yes or no.
Last Friday saw the release of Gatling 2.0.0-RC1. Gatling is a relatively new open-source performance testing framework. We've been trialing it on a project for a client, keeping a close eye on its development progress, and even contributing a few bug fixes and improvements.
See Floris Kraak's comments below, he has a much more elegant solution.......
This is the third article in a series describing script improvements that I recommended to a client during a recent engagement where I was advising on a LoadRunner to Performance Center migration.
