I'm current working in a project where we are building a system around Alfresco 3.4 Community and Adobe Drive 2.1. A very importent part of the project is to ensure a good performance experience when checking in large file (1GB+) from Photoshop CS5 using Adobe drive.
Tests regarding multiple files from one or two users we already covered but now we want to simulate a normal day to day work scenario. A scenario might be where 50 people will check in single large files in an more or less irregular pattern. (Irregular in the scence of not everyone commiting at the same time)
The goal with such a test would be to ensure the experienced performance even if multiple checkins are in action will someone tries to check out a file or simply just browse the system. Another concern here is if photoshop pauses during the check in process and therefore forces the end user to wait.
My question now is if someone have a good approach to setup such a test scenario? Is it possible to script it or somehow trigger the behavior through the APIs or something similar? Our backup plan is to use a bunch of virtual machines and script load using CIFS to add and remove files from Alfresco to generate load and then use two Macs to collect the actual test data using Adobe Drive. We would however prefer to generate the load via Adobe Drive to stay closer to the real life scenario.
One more thing, if anyone have a similar setup and can share test results and experiences about their system, posting your thoughts and findings here would be highly appreciated.
Load testing is usually focused on metrics like requests per second and concurrent users (the cause); whereas performance testing is more concerned with response times (the effect).............Performance testing is the process of determining the speed or effectiveness of a computer, network, software program or device. Performance testing can also be used as a diagnostic aid in locating communications bottlenecks........
