Testing web applications for performance is fundamentally different and more complex than testing them for functional correctness. To carry out effective Performance Testing (PT) it is essential to choose the right tools at the right time. They are chosen in different phases of PT to perform activities Such as scripting, test execution, reporting and analysis. The Performance Execution Framework (PEF) is designed to boost the productivity of performance test teams. PEF extends the capabilities of JMeter, the widely used load generation tool. It enhances JMeter’s capabilities in the areas of distributed execution, monitoring remote systems and reporting.
PEF enables generation of large load using array of systems. PEF is highly scalable to meet requirement of large scale load generation
PEF is cloud enabled. It can generate load from Windows Azure & Amazon EC2. It’s architecture allows it to use private cloud as well
PEF can monitor Windows, Linux systems. Metrics collected through such monitoring is included in the comprehensive report created by PEF
Analytics module provides intelligent analysis like: threshold breach, patterns, co-relation between two metrics etc. This helps tester to identify the problem areas quickly
A comprehensive report is created at the end of each test. This report provides details of business transaction, monitoring statistics, charts and graphs
PEF is offered using ﬂexible licensing in terms of duration, # of vUsers etc. It helps customers in increasing the ROI
