Performance Test Reporting step provides an overall test result, test analysis, and recommendations to the development team from the application’s performance perspective. Sometimes, technical teams may underestimate the value of reporting, mostly because they are busy, and writing a good report sometimes just takes more time than expected. What Is Performance Test Reporting? Performance Test Report makes performance testing visible and helps to find bottlenecks and make the GO / NO-GO decision for the whole application or a specific business flow. There are many ongoing forum discussions about what the ideal load testing report needs to contain. While there may not be much agreement over the perfect performance report, you [...]

Real-time reporting is a very crucial feature for all type of software tests. Bug fixing activities and improvements are planned based on the findings in detailed reports. This is also valid for any type of performance tests. Critical optimizations and changes are applied at different levels such as code, infrastructure or technological based on the reports generated. In this post, you will learn how to use enhanced real-time reporting with JMeter. JMeter supported basic raw formatted data in CSV and XML format up to version 3.0. You had to use a third-party tool to create fancy reports prior to [...]
As a Performance Test Engineer, you will be dealing with lots of requests and their response codes during your performance tests. These HTTP response status codes could be really useful since they give you an insight about the status of your test runs. Simply, they give you an idea about whether a specific HTTP request has been successfully completed. Even though there are lots of them, we can group them into five classes: Informational responses (100–199) Successful responses (200–299) Redirection messages (300–399) Client error responses (400–499) Server error responses (500–599) 1. Informational Responses [...]
There are lots of reasons why JMeter is one of the most popular performance testing tools in the market. And one of the biggest reasons is its reporting ability. Even though JMeter provides proper test results for your performance testing sessions, there are some problems as well. When you run your test in NON-GUI mode, you will need to wait until the test is complete to see the results. During long running sessions, seeing results immediately could be really crucial. Also, by applying some integrations -that will be shown below- you will have some sort of APM tool on [...]
Growing world of load testing increased both the search of new tools by users and development of new features by developers. The most known and used open-source tools in the sector are undoubtedly JMeter, and Gatling. In this blog post, we will try to explain the Gatling advantages briefly, and why to use it on your load tests. Gatling offers a wealth of features to help you develop a high-performance automation test suite by utilizing the Gatling DSL, as well as growing community support to help you with your questions. It's worth noting that, unlike other tools like JMeter, [...]
There are many ways for IT experts to perform a load/benchmark test on their system. With the help of a testing tool, this process could be really easy to perform and manage. If you are looking for different performance or benchmark testing tools, you have probably come across Apache Benchmark (A/B) and Apache JMeter before. And in this article, we will be focusing on the similarities and differences between JMeter vs Apache Benchmark. As we just said, both JMeter and Apache Benchmark were developed by Apache Software Foundation. They both can be used to run performance based tests [...]
Let's keep going where we stayed about Jmeter and Locust . If you didn't read Part1 you can reach here. 6. Script Recording Script recording is a quick and easy method to construct a simple test template, which you can then tidy up and modify to make it easier to maintain. If you need a quick solution and need to execute a specific load depending on repeated actions, script recording comes in handy. You don't want to waste time writing a script in such a circumstance, especially if you won't need it again. If you're planning to [...]
One of the most sophisticated JMeter built-in components is BeanShell. It understands Java syntax and adds scripting capabilities such as loose types, commands, and method closures. If your test case is unusual, and implementing it using integrated JMeter components is difficult or impossible, BeanShell might be a great way to fulfill your goals. BeanShell entities in JMeter have access to both internal JMeter APIs and any external classes loaded into the JMeter classpath (be sure to drop required jars into your JMeter installation's /lib/ext folder and insert the relevant "import" lines at the start of your BeanShell scripts). The following [...]
When it comes to performance testing, there are not so many different tools that has been mature enough to use in software performance testing projects. In this article we decided to talk about two of the oldest performance testing tools on the market. Those two tools are Apache JMeter and LoadRunner. Let's give some information about LoadRunner for those who have never heard of it. Apache JMeter and LoadRunner What is Apache JMeter? Apache JMeter is an open-source Apache project that helps IT teams to do load testing on their applications. It has its own script recorder, test result analyzer plug-ins and many cool features. What is LoadRunner? LoadRunner is a software performance testing tool developed [...]
