By default, IBM Rational Performance Tester provides essential performance metrics, such as throughput, response times, concurrency, and success rate. However, it also includes several advanced features for detailed analysis, many of which are not commonly used. Proper use of these options provides deeper insight when analyzing test results.
This new developerWorks article gives five tips for using some of these advanced features, all of which have helped tremendously in real-world performance testing projects with large companies.

Learn the main guidelines to build an automated development and testing framework using scripts. In the following blog post, Aya Elgebeely (Application Developer, IBM) highlights how using scripts to automate your development workflow can have a magical effect on your work quality and performance:
Streamline development efforts with scripts- There are quite a few steps to set up an environment or modify and build a substantial amount of files. If you use scripts, one command can do all the work at once. That's a big difference (and savings in time and energy) from doing the steps one-by-one. This gives you the time to focus on the important and innovative tasks and let the script do the mundane tasks.
With scripts you can combine various technologies under one custom framework. As if you are playing with Lego parts; scripts are the connectors between the different building blocks of your build and test environment. With scripting capabilities the intended workflow runs automatically with minimal user intervention.
