View Full Version : Load Testing - A real answer?

30 Jun 2010, 3:58 AM

We have been or had been seeking some solution to perform Load Tests on an ExtJS application we are building.
After the past 2 months we have used any advice found on the net and attempted to apply it.

Has anyone performed Load Testing on an ExtJS application?

if so could you be so kind as to explicitly state exactly what application or applications were used?

** as you can read we are not the developers but the project managers and need some guidance

we have tried Selenium/JMeter/Sahi

Thank you in advance -

Are you looking for performance breakdown? Request/Response, rendering times?

A good resource could be in Chrome. Chrome has a developer tool that can break down these response times for you. With chrome, goto "Page Menu" (The icon that looks like a page), Developer | Developer Tools... or (Ctrl-Shift-I)

Not too sure if that is what you are looking for, but it could be one resource.

we are trying to guage how to scale our application.

in doing so we wish to create artifical loads and watch the performance. this is a challenge it seems with any current test environments.

Here's an out-of-the-box thought that occurred to me:

Add additional "load testing" logic into your app that you can execute somehow, either via a "hidden" button that you can click, or some other manner.

Either keep a number of remote desktop/VNC sessions open at the same time, and fire off the load testing logic manually, or have a number of developers sitting around and issue the "Click the button" request to them. Hose the servers as best you can.

All the client-dependent performance aspects are not what you're really looking to test here, you can test those yourself on an individual basis. The server-side logic and performance is what's important to test.
