Looking for information about how to build performance simulations?
Building a good simulation of a user population requires expertise at many levels, including:
- An understanding of what the user population is likely to be doing, and how often.
- Experience with the performance simulation tool of choice.
- Ability to reverse-engineer the protocols sent to the Jazz server, in order to debug automation scripts.
In the following article Vaughn Rokosz, a technical lead for the CLM performance team, shares some of his experiences with building performance simulations of the Jazz products. He walks through a simple example demonstrating how to build a simulation of a user population that is creating work items in Rational Team Concert. He also shares some of the things used to make the development of performance simulations simpler by attaching the Rational Performance Tester project that he used when working through the example.
