MF Application Performance Testing: A Simplified Universal Approach SOLD OUT
Scott Barber, SmartBear
Mon, 10/13/2014 - 8:30am

In response to increasing market demand for high performance applications, many organizations implement performance testing projects, often at great expense. Sadly, these solutions alone are often insufficient to keep pace with emerging expectations and competitive pressures. With specific examples from recent client implementations, Scott Barber shares the fundamentals of implementing T4APM™, a simple and universal approach that is valuable independently or as an extension of existing performance testing programs.

Performance testing requires knowledge of systems architecture, techniques to simulate the load equivalent of sometimes millions of transactions per day, and tools to monitor/report runtime statistics. With the evolution from desktop to web and now the cloud, performance testing involves an unparalleled combination of different workloads and technologies. There is no one tool available—either commercial or open source—that meets all performance testing needs.

T23 Modeling System Performance with Production Data
William Hurley, Astadia
Thu, 10/16/2014 - 3:00pm

When creating system performance models, the primary challenges are where and how to start. Whatever the performance characteristics being estimated or modeled, we need a solid approach that addresses both business and system needs. All too often performance tests inadvertently mix load and stress scenarios with little regard for how this will confound recommendations and business decisions. If you are a test manager, a business process owner, or you simply want to better understand performance testing, you will be interested in William Hurley’s case studies.
