Challenges of Automating Performance Tests for New Internet Technologies

Key Points

Presentation Abstract

As a testing lab, we have to adapt to various technologies. The process and requirements for performance testing are always the same, but the automation tools does not always support the technology to be tested.

We have developed an approach the narrows the automation challenge down to the performance load scenario replay. It helps understand the system under test before starting the project, thus, provides an automation solution that works.
