BluePrint: Load Test

The tests are located in modules/tests/load

Load Test Parameters

Load Tests can be developed for different

Template

Which template is being tested

Arrival Rate of Users

The number of simultaneous users can be determined from this by knowing the number of requested in the sessions and assuming an average # requests / user / second.

Sessions

Which sessions are bing tested and how many of each

  • 20% create_staff
  • 40% search_staff
  • 40% report_staff

Number of Records

The number of additional records which should be created prior to running the load tests to test the response for a large number of records.

Server Being Testing

This should be defined in the Test Case file, but there should also be deployment setting which can be an override for ALL test cases.

Load Test Files

Test Cases

modules/tests/load/cases/
Load tests can be run for a number of different test cases. Each test case will specify the exact parameters for the load test

Template Helper Files

modules/tests/helpers/templates/
These will be template specific files that record the template specific static files to be downloaded on each page.

Session Files

modules/tests/sessions/
These are the different sessions being tested.

Example

  • ??

Helper Files

modules/tests/helpers/
Requests which will be common to many tests.
These can be reused in multiple sessions.
Example:

  • login requests will be common to all tests which require login

Data Files

modules/tests/load/data Scripts to create additional records to test the load with a large number of records. This will both add records directly to the database to test the server with a large number of records as well as create a CSV file of records which can be added by load tests.

Load Test Process

1. Config Load Test

2. Create Records

3. Run Load Tests

4. Report Results

Load Test Reports

  • Response time (i.e. time between the server receiving a request and the server sending a response)
  • Error rate (i.e. pages timing out or malfunctioning)
  • Resource utilization:
    • CPU load
    • RAM consumption
    • database connections/queries
    • number of server processes
