I've been playing with jMeter for load testing the customBuild tool and
am fairly happy with my success so far. I've figured out how to load the
customBuild page (1) and how to hit the server side code to activate the
build script and download the resulting file (2).
What doesn't seem to be possible is to actually do both those things in
So the page returned from (1) contains all the required data to create
the customBuild page, but does not render the page because that is done
terms of loading is obtaining the data to render the page, I'm not
feeling too stressed about this limitation.
I've created a separate jMeter script for (2) to take sample data and
post it to the server side script, which then activates the build script
and eventually download the results. Again, I've had to do this directly
rather than simulate clicking the check boxes and the submit button on
the rendered page (since I don't get a rendered page). As with (1) I'm
not too worried about this, since I think the biggest load concern is
not the interaction with the page, but with the submit and the response.
I'm pretty happy with the results so far, but feel like I should check
Does anyone see any reason why we should be concerned about the parts of
the process that I'm currently ignoring/bypassing?
***Before anyone starts to hyperventilate - actual load testing will not
happen until we have a space to test that won't bring down the website!!
Right now I'm just experimenting with the process.
