STAREAST 2002: A Case Study In Automating Web Performance Testing

Lee Copeland, Software Quality Engineering

Key ideas from this presentation include: define meaningful performance requirements; changing your site (hardware or software) invalidates all previous predictors; reduce the number of scripts through equivalence classes; don't underestimate the hardware
needed to simulate the load; evaluate and improve your skills, knowledge, tools, and outsourced services; document your process and results so that others may learn from your work; use your new knowledge to improve your site's performance and focus on progress, not perfection.
