We’re excited to be an attending sponsor at the Red Hat Summit this year, in it’s 10th year in action. The event takes place in the beautiful city of San Francisco, starting this coming Monday and running through Thursday the 17th. (We’ll be attending the 14th-16th).
ASP.NET is a unified web development model which allows developers to quickly build enterprise level dynamic web applications. It was released by Microsoft in the early 2000s and became an industry-level standard. About 20% of web servers around the globe are powered by Microsoft IIS and this usually means that they are running ASP.NET web applications. If your URL ends with “.aspx” - you’re testing an ASP.NET application.
Debugging is, arguably, the most important software development practice. Software doesn’t work immediately upon coding: you need to detect bugs and fix them. Apache JMeter scripts are no exception. Here are a few useful JMeter debugging methods:
In our previous post we discussed handling pages and resources that are protected with Basic HTTP Authentication. In this post we will provide a walkthrough of how to deal with advanced external authentication mechanisms with Apache JMeter, focusing on Windows protocols of NTLM and Kerberos.
This article will describe the steps you need to take to smoothly run a 50K concurrent users test, at least from the load testing point of view. Check out the webinar recording at the bottom of this article. Quick Steps Overview
In some performance testing use cases it is not enough to just check how long it takes for a server to render a page, produce a set of search results or create an entity. For certain application types – let’s take enterprise content management systems as an example – the performance of file upload and download requests is vital and must be tested. In this article we'll describe how File Upload and Download scenarios can be implemented using JMeter, highlight the areas which may be trickier in this respect and suggest some best practices.
WebSocket is a protocol which provides full-duplex bi-directional communication over a single TCP connection using default HTTP and HTTPS ports. It is supported by the majority of modern web browsers and is used to create chats, real-time games and applications, etc. The main idea of the protocol is that one connection is being used for two-way communication, as opposed to Ajax/iframes/XMLHttpRequests. WebSocket is a fully independent from the HTTP TCP-based protocol, as described in RFC 6455.
During your recent forays into JMeter (from JMeter V2.10+), you may have noticed a new, colorful icon. Well, it’s definitely time to check out JMeter’s new Template feature. It's totally fabulous dahhling.
It's super important to know how to reduce JMeter memory usage. Especially for high performance testing.
