User Community Modeling Language (UCML) for Performance Testing Workloads


Performance testers use various methods to describe user workloads -- scenarios, operational profiles, and more. Understanding these workloads and accurately simulating them is one key to developing useful performance tests. Scott Barber introduces a User Community Modeling Language (UCML) that he has used to describe and effectively communicate user workloads. With an interactive example, he shows the usage pattern of a sample application and builds a UCML diagram and supporting information to represent usage in an intuitive, easy-to-understand way. See how you can employ the User Community Modeling Language to supplement your existing workload distributions.
