Load Testing

Load Testing in a Continuous Integration Environment

In this blog post, we will talk about Load Testing in a Continuous Integration Environment and how to effectively integrate with cloud systems using RedLine13. The crucial point of the this blog post is that we are preparing our load test script just using Selenium code. Before we begin our example, let’s briefly talk about the technologies used in Continuous Integration (CI) processes in our post. Jenkins is an open source automation server and an integrationRead More →

Recording signifying File Upload with JMeter

This article demonstrates how to do a file upload with JMeter. This will show the steps when you have a load testing scenario where file upload is required. Recording File Upload with JMeter The simplest way of creating a JMeter test plan is recording the corresponding request using the HTTP(s) Test Script Recorder. JMeter acts as a proxy server, capturing all traffic between a web browser and the application under test (AUT), and converting it intoRead More →

Overview – Data Driven Testing Data Driven Testing (DDT) is a popular testing approach, especially for functional testing. The same business requirement or use case can get different reactions when using different data. One of the most popular uses is entering forms.

This is not an efficient way to generate load. You can simply use JMeter’s Throughput Shaping Timer Plugin. The Throughput Shaping Timer plugin allows you to load test the RPS more effectively. It is designedRead More →
