  • Performance testing is commonly conducted to accomplish the following:
    Evaluate against performance criteria
    Compare performance characteristics of multiple systems or system configurations
    Find the source of performance problems
    Support system tuning
    Find throughput levels
  • - To assess the system capacity for growth
    The load and response data gained from the tests can be used to validate the capacity planning model and assist decision making.
    - To identify weak points in the architecture
    The controlled load can be increased to extreme levels to stress the architecture and break it bottlenecks and weak components can be fixed or replaced
    - To detect obscure bugs in software
    Tests executed for extended periods can cause failures caused by memory leaks and reveal obscure contention problems or conflicts
    - To tune the system
    Repeat runs of tests can be performed to verify that tuning activities are having the desired effect – improving performance.
    - To verify resilience & reliability
    Executing tests at production loads for extended periods is the only way to access the systems resilience and reliability to ensure required service levels are likely to be met.
  • Performance Test: To determine or validate speed, scalability, and/or stability.
    Load Test: To verify application behavior under normal and peak load conditions.
    Stress Test: To determine or validate an application’s behavior when it is pushed beyond normal or peak load conditions.
    Endurance Test: To determine the performance characteristics of the product under test over an extended period of time.
    Volume/Capacity Test: To determine how many users and/or transactions a given system will support and still meet performance goals.
    Scalability Test: To measure system performance while steadily increasing user load.

    64. 64. Chapter 6 | Email: | Skype: jmeter.experts Handling the dynamic server values
    65. 65. What’s Inside | Email: | Skype: jmeter.experts 6.1 - What is Correlation 6.2 - Regular Expression 6.3 – Meta Characters for RegEx 6.4 - Managing session with Regular Expression Extractor 6.5 - Managing sessions with cookies 6.6 - Managing sessions with URL rewriting
    66. 66. What is Correlation | Email: | Skype: jmeter.experts  A Correlation is a Connection or Association.  Capturing the dynamic data that is being generated by the server is called correlation.  Correlation will be done using the Regular Expression Extractor in Jmeter. Reason to Correlation: To overcome script fail we need a way which can capture these dynamically generated session values and pass it subsequently to any part of the script, wherever required. This method to identify and set the dynamic generated value is known as correlation.
    67. 67. Regular Expression | Email: | Skype: jmeter.experts  Extract single string o Suppose you want to match the following portion of a web-page: o name="file" value="readme.txt"> o And you want to extract readme.txt . o A suitable regular expression would be: o name="file" value="(.+?)"> o The special characters above are: o ( and ) - enclose the portion of the match string to be returned o . - match any character o + - one or more times o ? - don't be greedy, i.e. stop when first match succeeds
    68. 68. Meta Characters for RegEx | Email: | Skype: jmeter.experts  Regular expressions use certain characters as meta characters - these characters have a special meaning to the RE engine. Such characters must be escaped by preceding them with (backslash) in order to treat them as ordinary characters.  List of the meta characters and their meaning: Meta Character Definition ( and ) Grouping [ and ] Character classes { and } Repetition *, + and ? Repetition . Wild-Card Character Escape Character | Alternatives ^ and $ Start and End of string or line
    69. 69. Managing session with Regular Expression Extractor | Email: | Skype: jmeter.experts  Name Regular Expression Extractor : jsessionid.  Reference Name : jsessionid  Enter Regular Expression : jsessionid = "(.+?)" /> o (.+?) this refers JMeter captures any values in between LB and RB)  Template : $1$ (this is for grouping)  Match No : 1  Default Value : NONE (To pass default value enter string here)
    70. 70. Managing sessions with cookies | Email: | Skype: jmeter.experts  A majority of web applications rely on cookies to maintain the session state. It's used to store a lot more information, such as user IDs and location preferences.  Start JMeter.  Navigate to Test Plan | Thread Group | Recording Controller  Add Test Script Recorder to Workbench.  In the browser, go to  Click on Login tab.  Enter admin in the Username field & ofbiz in the Password field.  Click on Login & Logout.  Add Cookie Manager from Config Element.  Save the test plan.
    71. 71. Managing sessions with URL rewriting | Email: | Skype: jmeter.experts  When session ID is attached to all URLs then technique used known as URL rewriting.  This ensures that the session ID is automatically sent back to the server as part of the request, without the need of putting it in the header.  The advantage of this technique is that it works even if a client browser has cookies disabled.  Start JMeter.  Navigate to Test Plan | Thread Group | Recording Controller  Add Test Script Recorder to Workbench.  In the browser, go to  Click on Login tab.  Enter admin in the Username field & ofbiz in the Password field.  Click on Login & Logout.  Add “HTTP URL Re-writing Modifier” and check ‘Path Extension’ & ‘Cache Session Id’.  Clean up test plan is the already existing session IDs that were captured during our recording.  Save the test plan.
